"As a private tutor for pre-school to elementary age children, specializing in children with ADD, I found the book to be engaging, energetic and an excellent learning tool for children to be aware of the importance of eating, exercising and hygiene. The cute characters are can be easily related to by any age. They immediately put a smile on your face. I would recommend this book for children 2 years to 4 years old. Congrats to the author for her first adventure!"

"I have enjoyed introducing my grandchildren to Matt and Mattie.  “Toddler Tootsies Take on the Day” is a creative way to introduce little ones to good habits of daily living.  The book includes a few pages on which choices can be made, providing an opportunity for discussion during the reading.  The Illustrations are fun and engaging and truly bring Matt and Mattie to life.  My three-year old grandson particularly enjoyed searching for the toe or “tootsie” hidden on each page.  Consider adding Matt and Mattie to your book collection for toddlers!"
