Matt Mulligan’s “Tomatoes and Peppers” Explores the Struggle and Relationship between Children and the World Around Them

Learn how assumptions, attitudes, and opinions affect children with all types of differences.

San Diego, CA – WEBWIRE

Attitudes, opinions, and assumptions of others, based on differences both seen and unseen, can become the real challenge that children face.

Matt Mulligan’s “Tomatoes and Peppers” is a child development book that talks about how children are affected by opinions and assumptions, especially if they are the different ones in a group.

The book explores the relationship of children with differences and the world around them. It uses tomatoes and peppers as metaphors for the children’s differences.

“Tomatoes and Peppers” is written in a children’s book style using “tomatoes and peppers” to signify the differences in a child’s development. In the book, the author describes gardening and planting tomatoes and peppers in the same type of soil, with the same amount of sunlight and the same volume of water.

Mulligan was born prematurely in the 28th week. In the book, he classifies himself and other premature babies as a tomato since tomatoes grow faster than peppers. The book also states that tomatoes need a cage for foundation as the plant has a softer stem to support their upward growth, compared to peppers that would grow with sturdy stems.

The cage or foundation also signifies a support group that should guide the “different” kid, as other people would always have opinions, assumptions, and attitudes that could harm the well-being and development of a child. The book itself is a metaphor since it targets the parents in taking care of their child no matter how special or different they are from the others.

The author was diagnosed with a learning disability at 40, so he wrote the book using simple words and short passages to help parents guide their children in understanding the world around them as they grow like “tomatoes and peppers.”
