About The Book

Clares Tomato

How much do you know about the food you eat?

Do you really know where it come from before it gets to your plate?
Young Clare is full of questions, including about the foods she eats. In this book, Clare’s Tomato, the author shares her adventures as she sets out to learn about how vegetables grow. She’s trilled about growing her first tomato, but she is concerned about what will happen to it when it is nice and ripe.

Clare’s Tomato is an entertaining children’s story. It’s also a chance for them to learn where food comes from and how they can play a part in providing food for their families.
