Alpharetta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/23/2018 -- New author Marsha K. Nowakowski has found a fun and interactive way to get toddlers on the fast track to a healthy, happy childhood. Her new children's book series, Matt and Mattie's Adventures, stars two adorable toddler friends that are out to discover and understand the daily routines in their lives. Marsha was inspired by her experiences as a mother and a cardiac nurse, knowing that a positive attitude is key to leading a healthy, productive life. In the first book in the series, Toddler Tootsies Take on the Day!, she impresses upon her young readers important life skills, such as eating nourishing meals and brushing your teeth, through endearing characters, enjoyable illustrations, and easily understood lines.

"Tomorrow your feet will again explore how healthy habits are fun and not a chore."
