Description - The Little Man in the Map by E. Andrew Martonyi

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 Biography - E. Andrew Martonyi

E. Andrew Martonyi, award winning 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 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 he lived on a boat for a while, writing poems of love and adventure. His wife, Irma, shares his enthusiasm for travel and the outdoors, and together they have hiked the Grand Canyon and camped in many states across the U.S. They continue to make their home in California.
