I am so happy you have my Adventures of Mitee Mite set of books and hope so much you are having fun learning all the things Mitee Mite shows and teaches. I think you are in for a big treat as you become a fan of Mitee Mite. To me, being a writer is a gift that I want to share with you through my Mitee Mite books.
As a boy, I remember the first book I ever read which was Green Eggs and Ham written by Dr. Seuss and how it engaged me and how I learned from it while at the same time having so much fun. That is what I hope you too will feel too and take away with you experiencing my Mitee Mite books. My Mitee Mite readers mean so much to me. I want them to have fun and learn too…like in my Mitee Mite book The Time Frame Game that shows you how to tell time.
The other day, someone asked me how Mitee Mite was born? Well…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. The goal of the Mitee Mite series is to expose children to a variety of lessons in a manner that is fun, relatable, and memorable. Mitee Mite was created to help give children a head start on the basics of time, measurements, shapes, and money. I think, as the creator of Mitee Mite, I have done that, and I hope you agree as you read your Mitee Mite book.
Where did I get the inspiration to create Mitee Mite ?...it was from my own daughter, who I call my “Little Mite.” She is the inspiration for the Mitee Mite character and the themes of the book series and apps. My own desire to teach my daughter the basic skills featured The Adventures of Mitee Mite book and app series has expanded into the goal of sharing these lessons with other children through my “You Buy, They Read” program. I plan to give away one book for every one bought to kids in need. Also, I will donate $1 for every $2 of the gross sales of apps to teachers who in these times we live in are going into their own pockets to buy school supplies.
I hope you enjoy Mitee Mite as much as I enjoyed writing my books. Thank you.

About the 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
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 www.miteemite.com) 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.”
