Update on Nick’s Second Book!

Nick recently met with Kaitlyn Birdsall-Thomas, the illustrator of his second book, Nick’s Eggsciting Adventure: An Awesome Story about Exploring in Action.

Nick was so excited to see the illustrations that Kaitlyn has been working on! The illustrations are incredible, and Nick really feels that his vision is being realized for his second book.

More than half of the illustrations for Nick’s Eggsciting Adventure are finished, or nearly finished, and this represents a big step for Nick and the Awesome in Action team. Nick’s second book has been a work in progress for 3 years and seeing the illustrations that have been completed really revitalized Nick and the team.

Nick, Kaitlyn, and Audrey hard at work!

The next step will be looking into publishing options and preparing the book for publication.

Nick and his team are hoping to publish the book in 2022.

Kid Days at the Promenade Shops

Nick and Audrey are pretty proud of themselves!

August 6, 2019 – Kid Days

On August 6th at the Promenade Shops at Centerra in Loveland, CO, Nick participated in Kid Days! This event offered hands-on learning experiences for kids of all ages.

Nick offered his booth of disability simulations including a wheelchair obstacle course, vision impairment simulations, and simulations of different physical limitations.

Nick set up his table to be as accessible as possible

Nick’s booth offered a unique opportunity during the event for families to teach their children what it means to move or think differently.

Toren did a great job navigating the course while experiencing different depth perception!

Nick enjoyed checking out the other booths and seeing how other vendors engaged kids in their activities. Nick definitely made some friends, not all of them human!

Nick thinks the tortoise is very interesting! Or maybe it’s the snake!

The event was a success and gave Nick the opportunity to continue to perfect his interactive booth to give the most engaging experience possible! Nick makes connections everywhere he goes, and loves getting to meet so many new people and find those who are interested in helping spread his message of inclusivity and diversity.

Nick wants to say THANK YOU to all the attendees of Kid Days!
