Editorial Review

Willie and the Tomato Garden is an endearing tale of love, respect, patience, and sharing. Willie’s interactions with Mr. Oliver and the animals she meets in the garden are a beautiful testament to the merits of teaching by example. The understanding and joy Mr. Oliver exhibits towards Willie’s eagerness and inquisitive nature, connects this story to readers of any age, from toddlers to grandparents.
~ Vicky Madden Bonillas, Montessori Teacher

I absolutely love this delightful tale, and how Willie is led by her nose through this whimsical garden adventure.
~ Heidi Michalske, videographer

This is a light-hearted story, teaching children the valuable lesson of giving to others. The illustrations are delightful and engaging.
~ Kerry Gregoire, business professional

I loved Willie from the moment I set eyes on her. The garden adventure reminded me of Peter Rabbit. Everyone has something to learn, especially the willingness to share.
~ Janet Vitt Sommer RN, BSN

The author takes her readers on Willie’s journey allowing them to taste and smell the tomatoes along the way. A well-written, descriptive, and creative story teaching the enduring values of sharing and making friends.
