“Sweet Tomatoes: Poetry for Children” was written by Henderson resident Barbara Botch for her grandsons, Oliver Raymond Botch and Joseph Michael Botch, “who taught (her) that love continues to find us and each time it is sweeter than the time before.” The book, illustrated by Lisa J. Michaels, explores Botch’s grandson’s adventures through baseball, gardening, favorite foods, puppy play time, holiday fun and more. Botch is scheduled to read from her book at 10:30 a.m. Dec. 17 at the 567 N. Stephanie St. Barnes & Noble.

My Grandma and Me

My Grandma came down.

We went to the sea.

We searched for seashells, my Grandma and me.

She brought a blanket.

I came with a toy.

Softly she whispered,

“I love you my boy.”

“Let’s share these cookies,” she said with a smile.

“And when we’re all done,

we’ll walk for awhile.”

I reached for her hand.

Our hearts were set free.

We danced down the beach,

my Grandma and me.
