I applaud Barbara Esham for finding a way to teach young children how to be more mindful. In so doing, she sets the stage for their greater well-being as adults.

endorsement "In I Think I Have the Wiggle Fidgets, Barb Esham achieves the near impossible by providing an honest and accurate yet wonderfully optimistic depiction of the blessings and burdens that result from combining the creativity of an artist, the energy of an athlete, and the attention controls of an 8-year-old! With humor and insight, Esham points to the often neglected upsides of high energy and creativity, and provides helpful strategies for channeling these gifts in positive ways. A tremendous source of information and encouragement for children who are learning to balance creativity and control!" Drs. Brock (M.D., M.A.) and Fernette (M.D.), learning experts physicians and consultants to a wide range of parent, teacher, and clinical professional groups|This is a wonderful book series. Each story shows children that success is about effort and determination, that problems need not derail them, and that adults can understand their worries and struggles. My research demonstrates that these lessons are essential for children.Dr. Carol S. Dweck, Stanford University, Professor of Psychology and author of Mindset The New Psychology of Success Carol S.
