We are pleased to host a giveaway of the picture book, Wiggles Stomps and Squeezes Calms My Jitters Down, by Lindsey Rowe Parker, illustrated by Rebecca "Bee" Burgess (BQB Publishing), out now. Enter to win a copy!
About the book: This story is about sensory differences for anyone who has ever felt the need for a wiggle, stomp, or squeeze! It is a team effort from a neurodiverse author and autistic illustrator. We are thrilled to be releasing in both English and Spanish in April 2021 from BQB publishing in conjunction with #AutismAcceptanceMonth.
About the Author: Lindsey is a mom at the tail end of toddler-hood, embracing the next phase of parenting while learning to navigate and advocate for her autistic daughter. With a recent adult diagnosis of ADHD, and a new deeper understanding of her own sensory experiences, she has begun to delve into the neurodiversity community learning all she can from neurodiverse voices. This is her first picture book, and she hopes it connects with everyone who has felt the need for a wiggle, stomp or squeeze!
About the Illustrator: Rebecca "Bex" Burgess is an autistic illustrator living in the UK. They love history and nature, but comics and illustration most of all! Their passion has led them to work with the likes of The Guardian and Jessica Kingsley Publishing. Rebecca is most famous for their online comic 'Understanding The Spectrum', a comic explaining autism that has been shared in several books and used by parents, teachers and doctors.
