Nikki features strong images of everyday life, each with a powerful verb that inspires to action.

This year's verbs and nouns: Become, Expand, Balance, Retreat, Thrive, Replenish, Reside, Go, Linger, Away, Adventure, and Converse.

I just read To Market to my newborn daughter Penelope Rose and can't wait to read more of Nikki's books aloud with her. They are so nourishing and lovely and they remind me of the truest and most important things in life. I'm grateful that she shares her craft and wisdom with the world.
