Ms. Esham stories are based on real life educational issues that children face. Two other stories- If You're So Smart, How Come You Can't Spell Mississippi, and Last to Finish, tackle the issues of spelling and math problems that students may encounter. These serious topics are handled with humor and wit. Other books address cursive writing and science class. If your child struggles in any of the previous areas, I suggest Barbara's books. The books are like cognitive warm and fuzzy blankets. You and your child will feel better about the topic after reading. There are also educational resources in each of the books. My favorite contemporary children's author is Barbara Esham.
