A Garden of Emotions

you are a gardener childrens book on emotional health

As gardeners, we experience a garden of emotions on a day to day basis. Weeds represent our negative feelings such as sadness, fear, anger, loneliness, upset, embarrassment, and frustration, while flowers represent our joy, happiness, and gratitude. As gardeners, we work hard to get our positive feelings to grow healthy and strong . It's important to be prepared with the right ‘gardening tools’ to help ourselves when our weeds pop up to overcome our challenges. One of the most powerful tools we have as gardeners is talking about those uncomfortable feelings with people we trust.

The core message of our book, "You Are a Gardener," emphasizes the significance of communicating with trusted individuals about our uncomfortable feelings, difficult thoughts, and challenging emotions, especially for children. By keeping the lines of communication open, especially from a young age, we are planting the seeds for strong emotional health and resilience.

As gardeners, there are many trusted gardeners out there who are available to help us get to the root of our weeds, in efforts to plant new seeds and appreciate our flowers. Encouraging young gardeners to communicate with family members, teachers, counselors, and trusted educators can greatly benefit their social and emotional growth.

Through engaging narratives and beautiful illustrations, our book encourages gardeners of all ages to view our minds as gardens full of emotions that need nurturing and care. It empowers gardeners to identify emotions, especially our ‘weeds’ and to understand that it's okay to seek help when we are feeling challenged. Just as a gardener needs gardening tools, our book provides practical strategies, a vocabulary and mindset to help gardeners of all ages manage feelings and navigate life's ups and downs.
