The Adventures of Mitee Mite

Inside the Book


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.

Focusing 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.

The 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.”

After reading all of the books in this short series I found myself reminded of the Word Girl TV show with how the author teaches children about different concepts with the help of a strong female character that kids can easily relate to. Her side kick could really use its own book as I found some kids were more interested in Terry the Ticker than Mitee Mite!
