By David John

I have had the pleasure of reading all five books in The Adventure of Mitee Mite series. Each little book has a fun educational theme with a simple question on one page and the answer to the question on the next page. I think it is a very cute idea and a great way to teach young children in a fun and entertaining way.

The Time Frame Game has some great questions about time. There is also an advanced Time Frame Game book with more questions. 

The Measuring Game book actually had a few questions that I found I didn't know the answer to. I learned a few things while reading this book. 

The Shape Game ask questions about how many sides each shape has. It's a fun way to get little ones to count the sides and learn the shapes and how they are made. 

The Money Game has great questions on how many pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters make up each coin and the dollar bill. I think this would be a great book to help children learn how to save money or to learn how much a toy would cost. 

I was captivated by the fun and bright illustrations in each book. The questions are done in a fun way with possible answers around the page. The correct answer follows on the next page so you and your child can see if they got the answer correct. Mitee Mite is an adorable character that appears to have a great time on her adventures in each book. I think the little one in your life will enjoy following along with The Adventures of Mitee Mite. I also think you both will also discover they have learned some fascinating facts along the way. 

I was given the opportunity to read these adorable little books and it has been my great pleasure to share my thoughts with you. 


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.”
