Review by Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers’ Favorite: Little Miss HISTORY wants to discover all there is to know about Ellis Island, the spot where thousands of immigrants learned their fate. She invites young readers along for the ride as well as a fascinating study in American history. Little Miss HISTORY Travels to ELLIS ISLAND is the sixth book in BARBARA ANN MOJICA’S series. The illustrations are wonderful and it looks like a travel diary as the illustrations carry the story while the text states historical facts and interesting tidbits.

Review by Judith Addington, Leadership catalyst, Entrepreneur, Founder/CEO – COOL CATS: Another winning book in the Little Miss History series by Barbara Ann Mojica! I love these books filled with information, fun facts about history, marvelous illustrations and some surprises along the way! I am always astonished at what I don’t know about history, and Barbara’s books make history zing.

Review by Diane Mae Robinson, Multi-award-winning children’s author:

The author has a wonderful writing style, which is concise yet reveals tons of information, and the mixture of photographs and wonderful illustrations add a truly unique feel to the book. The author has a gift for making history fun. Readers of all ages will love this book and this whole series.

Review by Kinsman Book Gang, Top of the Wardrobe, book series author: When I discover that a new Little Miss History book is out, I always know that I’m going to learn something new. I love the part illustration/part photographic style of this whole series of books and think the interesting snippets of information on each page are a great way for even the most reluctant young reader to absorb new facts.

Review by Betty Davis, Author of The Worldly Adventures of Nicholaas book series: As always Barbara does a wonderful job of making history easy to understand and gives you facts many may not know. As a history buff myself I definitely would encourage any elementary school child or adult to read this book. It’s by far a journey you won’t want to miss!
