Ever wonder about life in the Ice Age? Little Miss HISTORY travels back in time to LA BREA TAR PITS & MUSEUM in her eighth adventure of the award-winning “Little Miss HISTORY Travels to” children’s book series. Springs of liquid petroleum and a great lake of pitch, filled with exploding bubbles, once dotted the landscape of modern Los Angeles.

At La Brea scientists discovered fossils of plants and animals like mammoths, sloths, and saber-tooth tigers that lived thousands of years ago. The George C. Page Museum contains a glass-enclosed laboratory nicknamed the “Fish Bowl” where visitors can see scientists at work cleaning and categorizing current fossil discoveries. Visitors will discover wonders as they meander through the Pleistocene gardens, view an Ice Age film, and gaze down into the pits – but Be careful! Watch out for those tar seeps.

5 Star Review by Marie-Hélène Fasquel for Reader’s Favorite: Little Miss History Travels to La Brea Tar Pits and Museum by Barbara Ann Mojica is not just an educational book about La Brea Tar Pits and its museum, but is an adventure, the story of a little girl and her love for history. It is also a very enjoyable and entertaining story which will be successful with all children while teaching them about the history of their country and will make them feel like visiting this wonderful museum. The explanations are always easy to follow and are well explained such as: “This part of Los Angeles sits about one thousand feet above an oil field. The pressure in the rocks below pushes oil up through cracks.” The glossary at the end of the book will prove very useful to children. I wholeheartedly recommend this lovely book!

From the Author: “IF YOU DON’T KNOW YOUR HISTORY, YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT.”
