What sets Toddler Tootsies Take on the Day apart from other children’s books about learning life skills?
The book is about them, the toddler. They recognize each of the ten activities of daily living because this is their day, every day. They can relate to the characters Matt and Mattie and see themselves in the book while having fun with some of the choices offered. It becomes an unconscious fun learning experience for toddlers to learn life skills that follow along with quotes from long ago. Ben Franklin said, “It is easier to prevent bad habits than to break them Aristotle said, “Excellence is not an act but a habit.” Matt and Mattie help toddlers learn independence and confidence within their own daily activities. I think the characters of feet, Matt and Mattie, characterize symbolism of ten toes with ten activities of toddlers daily living. They bring to life adventures with our own feet and the colorful, relatable choices in balancing life, adventures, and learning. The hidden toe icons make Toddler Tootsies Take on the Day, a truly unique book.
Marsha K. Nowakowski is a loving wife, dedicated mother to three children, and a “grammie” to her grandchildren.
This is Marsha’s debut book for toddlers. She has spent forty years in the healthcare industry, primarily as a cardiac nurse. Her inspiration for writing Matt and Mattie’s Adventures developed from her own observations that patients who recovered more quickly exhibited healthy habits and good attitudes toward life. As a mother and grammie, Marsha recognized the need for books teaching healthy habits to help young ones develop into successful people who always do their best.
Matt and Mattie’s Adventures makes everyday habits fun, balanced, and adventuresome for toddlers. Marsha’s own adventures include travel, horseback riding, and reading. She also enjoys golf, baseball games, and sailing with her husband. According to Marsha, every day is an adventure!
