About Us

Tiny Twigs Press is dedicated to sharing nature’s wonder with children through beautiful and engaging picture books. Founded in the Green Mountains of Vermont, we strive to produce books that inspire outdoor exploration, ignite creative thinking, and grow a love for reading.

Explore. Wonder. Imagine. 

Author - Nikki Samuels

As an early childhood educator and mother of two, Nikki believes in the importance of daily unstructured outdoor play. Seeing nature’s beauty through the eyes of children inspired her debut picture book, Nature Parade. Nikki currently resides in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, with her family and a menagerie of animals.
