Sharon Gardner published her 1st Children's book, Max's Tree.
Sharon, a retired elementary school teacher, came up with the idea of Max's Tree as a way to teach her grandson about the seasons. The book revolves around a huge tree which grows in Max's front yard, and how not just the tree, but various animals, transform with the seasons.
