"I Am Stumped! is a book children worldwide can relate to in their everyday lives. It not only presents and solves a common problem of today, but models the lifelong skill of communication between children, adults, and peers. Most importantly, it encourages children to talk through and solve a problem with a friend."
~Kathleen Melillo, Grade 5 teacher, Leipzig International School, Germany

"Wow! Good story theme. I can't think of anything more important to elementary -aged children than peer relationships in creating a positive learning environment in school! I love how the story shows the important role adults play in conflict resolution situations between children. This story is an excellent discussion starter for any anti-bullying program for elementary schools"
~Craig Christensen, Retired Elementary School Principal
