Publisher's Description

Learning all 50 U.S. states is easy when you learn from The Little Man In the Map Asked by their teacher to find clues for memorizing the states, students begin to see images-a hat, a shirt, a pair of boots-formed by state boundaries. When they put some of them together, they're amazed to find the outline of a man standing in the middle of the map. Excited by their discovery, they draw a face and arms on him and create The Little Man In the Map, whom they nickname MIM. Their imaginations bring MIM alive, and with his help they discover the surprising roles all the states can play. Soon they can spot the elf, the playful dog, the spooky head, and all the others. This imaginatively illustrated story, narrated in rhyme by The Little Man In the Map, shows each state's part in its region and how it interacts with those around it. This makes learning their locations visual, easy, and fun.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Andrew Martonyi
Submitted: February 03, 2008

    Tell us a little about yourself.  E. Andrew Martonyi, author, public speaker, trainer and businessman, has traveled the world to give seminars to thousands of people. His love of travel was tested early in youth when his family crossed the Atlantic by boat to land at Ellis Island. As a young man, he drove across the US, where the Rocky Mountains, the deserts, and the Pacific Ocean made him fall in love with the West. He moved to California where, for a while, he lived on a boat and wrote poems of love, travel and adventure. His wife, Irma, shares his love of travel and the outdoors, and together they have hiked the Grand Canyon and camped in many states across the US.
They continue to make their home in California.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  His love of travel, his constant search for new things to see, and his granddaughterÂ’s interest in hearing about places he has visited, inspired him to study the US map from a new angle. What he discovered, he now shares with all children to help them learn the states of the USA.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  Every American should be able to name all of the states. This book will help them to achieve that goal in a very easy and fun way.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  Necessity is the mother of invention. I learned so much about this wonderful country while doing my research.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Calvin and Hobbs.
