A map of the 50 States certainly is not an ordinary map after you read this book full of creativity and rhyme. Did you know there is a little man with a hat, face, shirt, pants, and a boot in the map of the USA? The little man, Mim, will also show you a chair and a four-legged table, a drinking cup, a flashlight, turtle, a little elf... and much more! Mim shows you how each state comes alive and interacts with states nearby like you've never imagined.
This book is definitely engaging and exciting, it opened my eyes to look at the map in a totally different way. I was and am impressed with the uniqueness of this book. Though, the only down-side was that it is a long and descriptive book, and Tyler, whose 4, lost interest halfway through as I kept stopping to point everything out. Next time, I'll break the reading up over various days and regions. Learning the 50 States with this book is much more fun than straight memorization!
