- written by Tonya Russo Hamilton, Illusrated by Britta Nicholson
Tino and the Pomodori explores, through the eyes of a child, the magic that is the life cycle of a tomato plant. Tino takes the reader on a journey starting in the piazza of his small Italian village, to his farm where he learns to work the land. He explains how the tomato starts as a seed drying in the sun and grows to be, la bella frutta - the beautiful fruit, that would eventually make the family's sauce and bruschetta to go with Nonna's thick, hard-crusted bread. Visually engaging with vibrant watercolor illustrations, Tino and the Pomodori celebrates simplicity and the wonders of gardens, Italy, and family traditions.
