Author: David John

Publisher: Mitee Mite

Pages: 120 pages total in series

Genre: Children’s Picture Book

Building on a desire to teach children about time,
shapes, measurements, and money, author David John created THE ADVENTURES OF
MITEE MITE series. In the same way that many of us learned our ABCs, the book
and app (available on Google Play and iTunes) collection helps young readers
learn how many seconds are in a minute, the number of sides different shapes
contain, and more, using a catchy tune that captures their attention and
motivates learning.
on children from age 3 to 11 years old, THE ADVENTURES OF MITEE MITE book and
app series offers its readers a dynamic female superhero, Mitee Mite, as their
guide through the often tricky terrain involved with mastering time, shapes,
measurements, and money. In her matching red cape and boots, Mitee Mite,
accompanied by her alarm clock sidekick, Terry the Ticker, activates her
superpowers by using her manners, respecting others, and accurately answering
questions in the games she encounters during her adventures.

five books in THE ADVENTURES OF MITEE MITE book and app series include The
Time Frame Game
and The Time Frame Game Advanced, which break down
seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, and years to teach readers the
fundamentals of time. The Measuring Game explores the components of
feet, yards, and miles, as well as cups, pints, quarts, and gallons. Mitee Mite
teaches kids about currency in The Money Game and dives into a colorful
world of triangles, squares, hexagons, and more in The Shape Game. The
companion song for this series (available at helps kinds
absorb the skills in an enjoyable and interactive way.
The idea for THE ADVENTURES OF MITEE MITE book and
app series came about when David was faced with a dire challenge. “One day as I
was babysitting my friends’ children, and not having any idea what to do, I
made up fun games to help them learn,” David revealed. The goal of the series
is to expose children to a variety of lessons in a manner that is fun,
relatable, and memorable. David says, “Mitee Mite was created to help give
children a head start on the basics of time, measurements, shapes, and money.”
David’s daughter, whom he calls his “Little Mite,”
is the inspiration for the main character and the themes of the series. David’s
desire to teach his daughter the basic skills featured in THE ADVENTURES OF
MITEE MITE book and app series has expanded into the goal of sharing these
lessons with other children through his “You Buy, They Read” program. “We plan
to give away one book for every one bought to kids in need.” In addition, David
will donate $1 for every $2 of the gross sales of apps to
teachers “who are going into their own pockets to buy supplies.”

My Review:
This is a set of 5 learning books. One teaches time, on measurements, one is shapes, one is money, and  the last is an advanced time frame book.  Each book is short. It has a question on one page, then turn the age for the answer. The illustrations are very vibrant and bright and draw in the little ones attention. The lessons are easy and paired with the illustrations are fun.

I personally love books for the kids that teach a lesson versus a cute little story. These books are perfect for small children to ages 5 or 6. These books will help the little ones be ready for school and life as well.

David john has done an amazing john with this set of books and Tracy Ahumada has done an awesome job with the illustrations.
