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. This beautifully illustrated full color, laminated map is ideal for the classroom or a child's room. It shows all of the states in the roles that they play and how they interact with each other. This makes learning the clues and thus the states, visual, easy and fun.
