Learning the names and locations of the 50 states is a delight with The Little Man in the Map! This clever hardback book from Schoolside Press makes the United States of America come alive and contains clues that help memory retention. Once you “see” the Little Man in the Map (MIM) and learn his name – MinIow MisArkLou (Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana) – you know the names of this row of five states that runs north to south through the middle of the U. S. map. Branch out from there learning one region at a time as the states interact in a memorable story.

My nine-year-old daughter and I were the first to read the book together. She loves to talk about “MinIow MisArkLou” and is proud of her accomplishments in learning state names and locations. She wants us to purchase the accompanying wall map and upcoming book that will aid in learning the state capitols.
