About the Book



"This is a story about sensory differences and how some children experience their world, told from a child's perspective.

Book Synopsis



This is a story about sensory differences and how some children experience their world, told from a child's perspective.

The vibration in her feet when she runs, the tap-tap-tap of her fork on the table at mealtime, the trickle of cool water running over her hands---these are the things that calm her jitters down.

This book is for anyone who has ever felt the need for a wiggle, stomp, or squeeze!

Wiggles, Stomps, and Squeezes playfully validates the unique sensory experiences of children, written from their own perspective. I'm excited for every kid that will see themselves in this beautiful book! - Mark Loewen, Author of What Does a Princess Really Look Like?

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

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
