Myah was worried when her dad tucked her into bed that night. She knew she did not listen to him during the day and she wondered if he still loved her. Daddy reassured her that he would always love her and there was nothing she could do that would keep him from loving her. Myah told him she would love him even if he was a tomato. Daddy told Myah he would love her even if she was a rotten potato covered in mayo. Myah giggled and told Daddy she would still love him if he was a screaming goat stranded on a pool float and Daddy said he would love her even if she was a rude ferret who never shared his carrot. Daddy also told Myah that there was nothing that would keep him from loving her and that God loves them the same way.

I Would Love You Even If You Were A Tomato by Bucleigh Newton Kernodle speaks in an interesting way about a father's unconditional love for his daughter and God's everlasting unconditional love for his children irrespective of what they are and what they do. Ashley Teets makes Bucleigh Newton Kernodle's words and concept palpable to youngsters with some lovely illustrations that also give a good pace and movement to the story. The book is a fun read and the silly analogies in the story will bring a smile to the faces of all readers. I Would Love You Even If You Were A Tomato is a good storybook for parents and tutors to use for storytelling sessions to help children understand the bond shared between a father and daughter, and God's love.
