“It is important to me that these books and activities are accessible to as many people as possible, and that starts with our educators,” said author Lindsey Rowe Parker. “We approved this activity book for reproduction in educational settings, so copy away! With additional videos, resources, and book lists, we’re just a wiggle, stomp, and squeeze away from learning to calm our jitters down — and a more inclusive experience for your neurodiverse students.
“My favorite theme of this book is that the child is accepted and understood. She is not asked to change, she is supported, she is allowed to be herself, she is loved. Activities that explore sensory differences help kids to find the language they need to express how they’re feeling and better understand themselves. Adding stories and activities about sensory differences to your inclusive library, school, or bookshelf at home empowers kids to feel seen, known, and loved — just as they are.”

Wiggles, Stomps, and Squeezes Calm My Jitters Down, Lindsey’s award-winning book about sensory differences, she hopes will resonate with anyone who has ever felt the need to wiggle, stomp, or squeeze!
