This is Nikki's most ambitious and detailed book to date.
This lyrical picture book follows a family through one day in an amazing small town — and muses on the possibilities that just one day can hold — from enjoying treats at the bakery, to admiring handmade goods from local artisan shops, to observing the new construction in town.
Illuminating themes of community, creativity, and collaboration, What Will These Hands Make? dares the reader to dream up everything they can be and all the ways they can leave their little corner of the world better than they found it.
