Just in time for the over-do-it season
The second volume in Tater Tot’s children’s book series stays true to the squishy pup’s mission of creating respect in any situation. “Too Much!” helps us understand the concepts of balance and moderation before we see unwanted consequences for ourselves and others. Tater Tot makes it so easy to understand why we don’t want to do “Too Much!” that any area where moderation can be difficult, e.g., video games, social media, computer, exercising, playing sports, studying, time alone, hanging with friends, etc., will be so much easier to discuss and create good habits.
“Too Much!” also offers several clues for readers of all ages to create moderate behaviors, such as:
- Identifying the source of a consequence / problem
- Asking for help
- Offering examples to confirm a concept
- Creating habits that make moderation possible
- Practicing moderation habits
- Saying “Thank You”
- Helping Others
- Planning ahead
Again, Tater Tot gives us a children’s picture book that engages the most distracted readers with rich illustrations and a charming story.
About Tater Tot’s First Book
Tater Tot At The Chase: A Happy Helper is the first book in his life lessons book series showing us how doing what you said you would do gives respect to others while earning for yourself at the same time.
“I love how Tater Tot is the one with the problem so you can have a conversation with your kids or grandkids without a litany of creative excuses or tears,” remarked Carol Weisman, mother, grandmother, and author of Raising Charitable Children (2018 F.E. Robbins and Sons Press).
Tater Tot’s #yourpurchasehonored program honors every purchase of Tater Tot book gifting a copy of his book where a book is needed. Over 3,000 books donated to military schools and organizations, children’s hospitals, elementary schools, pediatric cancer foundations and neurosurgery centers.
About the Author
Laura Holman Byrne, a lifelong science and healthcare communications professional and first-time children’s book author, was inspired by the pure joy people respond to Tater Tot with in person or through social media. “Tater Tot is the greatest equalizer. There’s almost no one who hasn’t melted into a smile when they’ve met Tater Tot or seen his book.”
While this children’s illustrated book series is excellent for little readers, Ms. Byrne has seen the lessons become a friendly reminder for adult readers who may be working through stubbornness or denial in their own efforts to be personally responsible for creating respect in any situation.
