Five Stars!

Wonderful way to be an armchair traveler and visit some of the Unites States thrilling monuments. Little Miss History is an adorable guide that takes the reader behind the scenes in this book to Mount Rushmore. She goes into quite a bit of detail, explaining the scope and cost of the project giving fascinating facts, like the amount of explosives needs and the type of rock, as well as many of the challenges the sculptors faced. Even more interesting, Mojica doesn't shy from controversy regarding the bitter dispute between the United States government and the Native Americans over the land. This opens the door to discussions on how to solve the issue a appreciate the many cultures sharing American history.

Happy Reading!
