Summary: - 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 imagesa 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. - - - - MIM Awards as of 4/8/2009 - - - - Moonbeam Children s Book Awards - - - Silver Medal Winner Non-Fiction Picture Book - - - - Independent Book Publishing Professionals Group - - - Silver Medal Winner Outstanding Book of the Year, Most Original Concept - - - - 2008 Next Generation Indie Book Awards - - - Finalist Children s Picture Book - - Finalist Education/Academic - - - - ForeWord Magazine - - - Finalist - Book of the Year Award - - - - USA Book News - - - Finalist Best Book Awards - - - - Eric Hoffer Book Awards - - - 2009 Montaigne Medal finalist.
