The Little Man in the Map Teaches the State Capitals
E. Andrew Martonyi
AGES:  K-Jr. High
Price: $11. 95
Paperback/109 pages.
SOURCE: schoolsidepress.com
I say: AWESOME!
GiveAway:  See below for ways to enter!

If you are looking for an entertaining way to teach US geography The Little Man in the Map Teaches the State Capitals! is just for you!   Using a fun way of learning, it is easier to learn all the US state capitals.  The drawings are well done in black line cartoon with easy to remember rhymes that are sure to help even a struggling learner.
The author says, " ...one of my key objectives was to find a straightforward method for readers to link the clue for each capital with the name of its state.  A rhyme or catchphrase then highlights the name of the capital, and both elements  are reinforced in a humorous cartoon."

FREE Coloring Pages HERE!

My children think this is a neat book for kids, and I agree!

We reviewed The Little Man in the Map: With Clues to All Fifty States, and am so excited that Mr. Martonyi has written one for state capitals! Thank you, Sir~this is GREAT!
Congratulations on its recent release!!

    I pointed out the little man in the map when I introduced the US map to DS. It thought it was cool. So, I know he'll like this. I had to go to SChoolhouse Press to know that is what this Man in the Map is.

    Visited! That would help ME learn states and capitals too!

    Debbie said...

    I learned that "the little man" is made up of 5 states. I thought it was an odd name for a book!

    Jan Marie said...

    I visited Schoolside Press - this would be perfect for my enrichment students. We were just talking about additional tools to help them memorize the states and capitals.
