The author skillfully informs readers of the history of the Statue of Liberty by stating facts that include where the statue came from, who designed it, who built it, and also who funded it, and what she represents.

Review by Kitty Muse Book Reviews: The only good descriptive I can come up with for this book is “amazing”. And I don’t mean the over-used meaning of the word.

The one who reads the book and the one who hears the narrative will both benefit from the telling.

Review by Charla White, Words-A -Plenty: “The writing is done in an engaging manner and holds the child’s attention.

Who was George Washington? Washington is best known as America’s first president, but he was also a military hero.

Reynolds Museum and Education Center reveal the real Father of the United States of America.

  • The roles George Washington played in America
  • The rooms in the Mansion House

Review by Reader’s Favorite, Vernita Taylor, Reviewer: “History improves the mind and expands our knowledge of the past.”

Review: Little Miss HISTORY Travels to MOUNT VERNON (Volume 7) is a beautiful, colorful children’s book in which Little Miss HISTORY guides you on a journey back in time to George Washington’s Mount Vernon mansion and plantation. You will learn about his way of life, 18th century farming methods, and the slaves who were the backbone of the plantation. What issues troubled George Washington? Come see how the first President of the United States lived, worked, and died.

Review: “Little Miss History Travels to Mount Vernon” by Barbara Ann Mojica is a different way to learn more about history. Is interesting to know that George Washington loved life on the farm. He was in Mount Vernon where he had this plantation of so many acres that was divided into five farms, and on one of them was the mansion where he lived with his wife.

Review by Paola Belloso (age 9) for Reader Views (01/17):  In “Little Miss History Travels to Mount Vernon,” you will learn and see many things, just like if you were visiting the place. The details of his bed, the library, or even the kitchen and bedrooms of the slaves. It is a fun way to learn with actual pictures of what you are reading. Until I visit the mansion, I will keep it in my memory. I loved the pictures and Little Miss History, too.

A Note from Paola’s Mom: What Paola most like about this series was the fact that she was reading about George Washington in a different way, learning other aspects of his life and observing the details in the illustrations.

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.”

This is the ninth book in the children’s history series with Little Miss HISTORY arriving at the North Pole in a sled pulled by four huskies.

What you will learn:

  • Location of the North Pole.
  • What’s under it?
  • How often you see sunrise and sunset?
  • Animals you might find.
  • First explorers.
  • The first African-American explorer.

  • In the 1930s what did Santa advertise?
  • Does Santa have helpers?
  • Why does the North Pole have no time zone?
  • What are International Waters?
  • What countries claim the Lomonosov Ridge and why?

Review: Little Miss History Travels to the North Pole by Barbara Ann Mojica is a story that features a young girl who opens by explaining why her parents gave her the nickname “Little Miss History”; she constantly asks questions about the past. Her travels to the North Pole show her driving a sled drawn by huskies and walking with ski sticks, all on brilliant white snow. Lines of longitude, lack of a time zone, the “land” being a floating sheet of ice in the Arctic Ocean, summer and winter temperatures and sunlight times, wildlife as in birds, fish, and mammals, explorers, the countries that surround the pole, the indigenous people – it is all here, beautifully illustrated with pictures, and maps, and written in a clear font. Can you resist finding out the truth about Santa Claus?

This is a book written for children, and its appeal is undeniable. I loved the chatty style that subtly hides the “educational” aspect, but Barbara Ann Mojica sets out to teach and she succeeds. I learned a lot I didn’t know, and any child would absorb the fascinating facts so clearly and entertainingly explained, and, of course, drawn in by the promise of finding out about Santa Claus. By the time they can read and understand this enchanting book, they know he’s make-believe, isn’t he? He has many other names dug from the mists of time by Little Miss History. Little Miss History Travels to the North Pole is the perfect Christmas gift, and sure to be welcomed by schools at any time.

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