Winnie is the new kid at school, and sometimes she acts kind of wild. But her teacher says to her classmates:

"Maybe Winnie feels the world differently than most of us. Why don't we give her world a try?"

“In cheery, colorful, pastel-hued double-page spreads, diverse classmates joyfully join Winnie in activities that regulate her animal-themed antics. . . .

A closing author's note to caregivers alludes to sensory processing disorder and presents additional activities targeting balance, body awareness, and more.” 

Kirkus Reviews

 

“Fitzgerald explicitly advocates for a paradigm shift. . . . Wild for Winnie can serve as a read-aloud or a resource, or just a sweet book about acceptance.”
