July – Tomato Says Sorry
July’s Book of the Month. Tomato is causing a lot of trouble! The Foodies Books bring you stories from the veggie patch for each month of the year, and all the characters, scenery and weather are in season that month.
It was a glorious hot July day in the garden. Tomato was bored and bouncing with energy. He raced around and around the garden, until suddenly…
In this story, Tomato is so full of energy that when he upsets some people and messes up their games, he doesn’t even want to stay and apologise. This makes everyone really cross at him.
The story lends itself to discussions of kindness and politeness, and about saying sorry when we mess up. Our free downloadable activities explore the theme of kindness and politeness in more depth, with games about posh dinner table manners, storyboarding kind actions, and investigating books and TV shows for examples.
