Review Quotes

"Wiggles Stomps and Squeezes is the perfect celebration of neurodiversity! It is an amazing book to read your kiddos dealing with sensory sensitivity OR to help your students develop an empathy and understanding of their classmates." --Sunshine Speechie

"I have worked in special education for 12 years and have not come across a book that explains these jittery feelings until now. This book will capture the hearts of families and children with unique needs as well as educate those unfamiliar with sensory differences." --Bridget Martinez, Special Education Teacher

"Original, charming, joyful, and certain to be an immediate and enduringly welcome addition to family, daycare center, preschool, elementary school, and community library collections..." --Midwest Book Review

"Parker's lively debut follows a neurodiverse child with heightened sensory experiences as she navigates her day...This fast-paced picture book is perfect for those looking to learn more about the daily experience of sensory differences. Great for fans of: Jenn Bailey's A Friend for Henry, Alicia Ortego's Kindness is my Superpower." --Publishers Weekly Booklife

On Wiggles, Stomps, and Squeezes:

"I often find myself trying to explain to parents why their child needs wiggles, stomps, and squeezes to get through their day while experiencing sensory input in ways that are different and often more intense. This is the first book I have come across that provides a very real glimpse into the lived experience of a child with sensory differences. What a wonderful book that so many families can benefit from!" --Caitlyn Berry, Occupational Therapist
