Barbara Ann Mojicaabout this book: I have always been passionate about history, and during my lifetime I am fortunate to have visited thirty countries and more than half of the states in the USA. Now a retired teacher and school administrator I can go back to my first love, history. I began doing so in 2011 by writing biweekly historical articles for a local news magazine, The Columbia Insider.
Learning history in school has not been a rewarding experience for many as it was for me. I saw an opportunity to change that when I married a talented artist and author. He designed the Little Miss HISTORY character, featured in my books, based on my younger self. I then took my passion for history and extensive travel experience to writing picture books that will make learning history fun for children, and as it's turned out, fun for adults too!
Little Miss HISTORY's first journey led her to scale the heights of Mount Rushmore. In the second book of the series, Little Miss HISTORY Travels to The STATUE of LIBERTY, she reveals how one of the world's most famous ladies came to stand in New York Harbor as a welcoming beacon to all.
Parents and teachers should note that the Little Miss HISTORY Travels to The STATUE of LIBERTY book is especially a perfect learning tool for fourth graders in our New York schools studying the history of New York State.
I love watching the faces of children when they first open my books. The illustrations appeal to children as young as age two. The older children immerse themselves in the text, as well as the illustrations, as they learn more about history in a fun way! Writing the Little Miss HISTORY series has also allowed me to connect to other writers, parents and teachers via my blog and social media sites.
