Timothy’s Tomatoes is a storybook for children about a competition at school to see who will grow the best vegetables.

A few of the key themes in the book deal with:

   feelings of disappointment and failure

   having the courage to believe in yourself when it appears as if the odds are against you

   looking at the small things in life and enjoying them to the maximum

   dishonesty

It is more meaningful for your child to relate to these experiences and various life skills if they are introduced to characters in books who are under-going similar encounters, instead of sitting him down and giving him a lecture about disappointment or dishonesty.
