you are a gardener childrens book and sel programs
"Our school had a great visit from Gardener Shanna today! She read her book and taught us gardening tools to help us pull the weeds in our gardens so we can all grow like flowers! The message was simple, meaningful and both students and staff related well to the strategies. Teachers began using what we learned in their classrooms that very same day! The students loved the YouTube channel too! Thank you Gardener Shanna for reminding us we all have weeds and we all have gardening tools to use! "
