Released in October 2020, “Who Wants to Play With Little Mouse – A fun counting story about friendship” rushed to the top of Amazon’s Bestseller list in the categories Popular Counting and Numeration and Number Systems in November 2020 and stayed for months at the top of it.

“I believe that children love to learn in a fun and interactive way without obvious lessons and I enjoy writing books that reflect my belief.” – author Jana Buchmann
Math skills taught in early childhood education provide the foundation children need to succeed in elementary school and beyond.
“Children are naturally visual and can build relationships between numbers and a represented item. According to the National Center for Infants, Toddlers and Families, using representation or pictures to clarify a relationship is making the use of mathematics real to a child’s mind.” Resilient Educator states in its article about the importance of math skills in early childhood:
The value in teaching children math concepts through story-sharing experiences like in Buchmann’s book is also emphasized in Scholastic Book’s article “Early Math and Literacy: A Powerful Pair”: We know that building language is an important way to support children’s learning of mathematics. One characteristic of children who do better than others in math is that they can explain and justify the mathematics they are doing. At the same time, one of the best predictors of later success in school mathematics is how well children understand and tell stories.”
To continue her growth journey, Buchmann successfully arranged a Germany distribution arrangement for her Little Mouse books in Germany, with Nova MD. The deal starts with the release of her German book in November and then distribution of both German and English books into book retailers in Germany. To make this start as professional as possible Jana is doing the first print-run of the hardcovers with the well-known European printer FINIDR. https://www.finidr.com/
Prioritizing quality production of the new edition and reprints, Buchman shared her most popular and latest Little Mouse educational merchandise on a fully-funded successful campaign on the Kickstarter platform. https://tinyurl.com/martymouse
