Little Miss History Travels to Mount Rushmore
Little Miss History Travels to Mount Rushmore by Barbara Ann Mojica is an educational and fun way to introduce children to history. Ms. Mojica is a historian and retired educator, and her love of history is conveyed effortlessly throughout the book. She brings life to the presidents memorialized in stone at Mount Rushmore, along with other related characters. The illustrations are well-drawn and match perfectly with the story being told.
An interesting feature at the beginning of the book is how Ms. Mojica introduces children to the narrator, Miss History, similar to a movie’s opening scenes rolling prior to the credits. This creative beginning lets children and parents know that there is an adventure coming. Ms. Mojica plans additional books in the series, and I for one, cannot wait to read them, even though I don’t have children.
