PRINCETON, NJ, July 22, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- 'Sam Likes Jam' is about a boy, and his favorite food - JAM! 'Sam likes Jam' is not only fun to read, it will inspire your child to think about and make their favorite foods! Getting your children to help in the kitchen will not only encourage them to try new foods, it may even ignite a love for cooking that will last a lifetime. Use the included recipe for strawberry jam to start that journey or as a fun activity for a rainy day.
One of my fondest childhood memories was standing on a chair next to my grandmother making meatballs, or baking Christmas cookies each year as a family. So I try to continue that tradition with my boys, Niki said.
When asked about the process of writing the book, Niki said that, "one day last year, I was picking up the playroom for the millionth time that day and I allowed myself to drift off into thought. I started thinking about jam. I don't know why. Maybe I was wiping jam off of something. That isn't really a rare occurrence in our house. Anyway, I started thinking about jam, and my boys and a little story started forming in my head. I started to imagine that story with images, and once it was in there I needed to get it out. I raced to my computer, typed out the story, and little by little started making plans. Those plans turned into pages, and those pages finally became a book." 'Sam Likes Jam' is available on Amazon.com.
Niki is a '30-something' stay-at-home mom. A resident of Central NJ, she lives with her husband, two young sons, and her two dogs. One day she hopes to add some chickens to her little brood...but that's a dream for another day.
A graduate of Rutgers University, Niki had dabbled in a few careers ranging from retail management to library work, PR for major movie houses in NYC, acting as the unofficial hostess/server/bartender for a corporate resort, managing an accessory company, and finally landing on service within her state (in the realm of child support). She left all of that excitement behind to raise her boys and write a book or two. Her debut children's book, 'Sam Likes Jam' was launched in March of 2017.Niki's other hobbies include cooking, gardening, crochet, sewing, and trying to drink a whole cup of coffee while it's still hot.
