A new series of children’s books teaches young learners about the history of famous US landmarks. “Little Miss History Travels to Mount Rushmore”, was the first in the series of books using the Little Miss History character as a guide. It won a B.R.A.G. Medallion. The author, Barbara Ann Mojica, has just released the second title about the Statue of Liberty.
Little Miss History looks like a wannabe park ranger with pig tails and hiking boots three sizes too big. She acts as a guide, telling the reader about people and places of historical importance.
“The aim of these books is to whet your child's appetite to learn more about history and perhaps even visit these landmarks with you,” the author says.
Barbara Ann Mojica is an historian and retired educator living in New York State. She also writes historical pieces for The Columbia Insider under the banner “Passages”.
Mojica writes reviews of children's books twice weekly on her blog at http://bamauthor.wordpress.com.
“Little Miss History Travels to the Statue of Liberty” discusses how the monument arrived, the values she symbolizes, the architects and engineers who built her, and the little known individuals who contributed money to make her possible, and why she remains a promise and symbol of the hopes and aspirations of people around the world.
Both books in the series are available online in book retailer websites like Amazon and Barnes and Noble or ask for them in your local bookstore. To learn more, visit Little Miss History's website at http://www.littlemisshistory.com.
