The Tracy Aviary - Jordan River Nature Center is excited to host Margaux Meganck, author of People are Wild!!!

An inviting and inventive classic-in-the-making about learning to have compassion for every living thing, gorgeously illustrated by a rising star in the picture book world.

Wild creatures come in all shapes and sizes. They can be playful or loud or smelly or curious or cute—just like kids!
People Are Wild turns the tables and asks what animals think of us. We may not always see eye to eye, but the more we understand each other, the better we’re able to live in harmony.
