‘Tomato’ tale gifted to kindergartners

Jason Hawk | Amherst News-Times

Judy Alexander reads “I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato” by Lauren Child to Julie Reynolds’ kindergarten class at Powers Elementary School. Alexander is a member of the Friends of the Amherst Public Library, which donated 375 copies of the children’s story to Powers, St. Joseph School, and Firelands Elementary. “We know there are children who have never owned a book before. Our goal is to promote the library and reading,” she said. Alexander was one of several Friends members to read the book Thursday to Powers students.
