A Tomato Warning!
by Grandpa Stan
A TOMATO WARNING! starts out as the first real experience of a two-year-old with a tornado warning. What is initially very scary to little ones turns into a lesson about storms and how they could help. This story calms children’s fears and reminds them that many good things can result from nature’s occurrences.
The story was born out of the author’s just-turned-two grandson and his advanced verbal skills but quirkiness with words. Children reading the book can learn the immediate effects of heavy, scary wind and rain and the long-term benefit of feeding their family and the world.
