Barbara Ann Mojicaabout this book: Whoa! Little Miss HISTORY has hit a grand slam. She has packed three of her NYC adventures into one exciting book. Visit the STATUE of LIBERTY the symbol of hope and promise for the immigrants who passed by it on their way to fulfilling their dreams as they awaited inspection at ELLIS ISLAND. Then journey up the Hudson River to the USS INTREPID to witness and explore hands on one ship's amazing history covering WW II, the Vietnam War, the space age, and the war on terrorism. Hold on to your hats for a rollicking ride into nineteenth and twentieth-century history.
Many of my readers suggested that I combine some of the historical adventures of Little Miss HISTORY into one volume. This book explores and celebrates the concept, design, and construction of the Statue of Liberty. Then it progresses to trace the journeys of immigrants who came from far and wide to seek the opportunities and freedom of America. As they landed on Ellis Island, these intrepid souls would be rewarded with hope or turned away in despair. Finally, readers are guided up the river to view and participate in the on-site exploration of the "Fighting I," the USS Intrepid. This amazing warship sailed during WW II, the Vietnam War, and the Cold War. She became involved in NASA recovery and the war on terrorism. Step aboard and feel its history.
The spectacular photographs and illustrations in combination with the historical narrative introduce children and adults to both well-known and little-known people and events. Recommended for parents, teachers, librarians and future leaders.
