Author Dr. Rochelle Simmering Franzen, self-professed lifelong and steadfast learner, has completed her new book “The Secret Garden of Talents”: a gripping and potent children’s story that follows Howard as he uncovers the secrets of a mysterious garden.

Dr. Rochelle Simmering Franzen discusses the meaning behind her work, writing, “This children’s story uniquely parallels the main character’s quest for understanding his own learning potential to a garden with personified characters representing learning qualities, types, and talents. Howard journeys through the secret garden’s story of what makes it wither, dry, and freeze as well as the positive words, actions, and mind-sets that made it thrive and nurture its growth. Designed to help learners discover their own learning strength and preferences, this story also assists in suggesting the catalysts that spark and nurture growth in learning as well as negative strategies that tend to hinder the growth of learning potential. A mind map of this story is included to assist parents, educators, and leaders in their own quest to help learners become aware of metacognitive strategies and facilitating discussions about learning qualities and domains. This story is designed to entertain children’s curiosity about their own learning as educational stakeholders continue to reimagine and weave the new learning threads of the future into the tapestry of making education meaningful in the future.”

Published by Page Publishing, author Dr. Rochelle Simmering Franzen’s heartfelt tale emphasizes the importance of continuous learning and growth for young readers.
