Halfway Wild

Gold Medal, Best Picture Book (Ages 4-8), 2017 Moonbeam Children’s Book Award
Finalist, Children’s Literature, 2017 Maine Literary Award


Debut children’s author Laura Freudig pairs with award-winning illustrator Kevin Barry to create a poetic and playful picture book that investigates feelings, emotions, and imagination, exploring the connections we have with the animals around and within us. Follow one family through the course of a day as they march through meadows like ants, dive to the depths like seals, play hide and seek like fireflies, and chatter like raccoons, until, at last, “. . . when the house is still and all we can hear are the soft, slow breaths of the ones we love, we’re a family of bears.”


Halfway Wild is also available as a story walk.
