Gonna Build a Boat - You Can Do Anything!

Consider a world where we can come together as a community to tackle an extraordinarily daunting situation! Think about a world where we focused on people's skills, talents, abilities ignoring labels and limitations! Children’s Author Cathy Gagliardi discusses her book, Build A Boat, and the powerful themes within the story including empathy, friendship, love and resiliency SO important for a growth mind set in children. Dedicated to her dad, boat builder and sailor, who encouraged everyone that they had skills to do anything (including building a boat) Cathy followed in his footsteps and now encourages parents, educators and those that work with children to find these skills in every child through storytelling and imaginative play!
