Little Miss History Travels to La Brea Tar Pits and Museum by Barbara Ann Mojica is part of a collection of history books for children. The illustrations by Victor Ramon Mojica are beautiful and fun: they are a mix of actual photographs and drawings. It is, first and foremost, an educational book, but it represents much more than that. 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.

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. “Often I’d ask about the past driving everyone crazy fast!” It is about her never-ending questions to her parents, her curiosity, and in this book she directly addresses her future readers in order to engage them and teach them about their common history: “Read this book and I’ll take you somewhere!” 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. It includes words such as asphalt, geologist, and paleontologist. I wholeheartedly recommend this lovely book!
