Little Miss History Travels to Ford Theatre by Barbara Ann Mojica
WordsAPlenty received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Little Miss History Travels to Ford’s Theatre is a very well done children’s book on the historic Ford’s Theatre. The main character, Little Miss History briefly provides information about the theatre and Lincoln’s death. While this is interesting, Little Miss History provides more information that many are not aware.
One of several examples: “The U.S. government paid John Ford $100,000 and forbade it ever using the building as a place of amusement.”
This is a children’s picture book that is very well done. The black and white of the drawings mixed with photos are all excellently done. The timeline of the story itself is perfectly done. Little Miss History is placed into the story via the pictures and although she stands out, it is done in a creative and vivid manner. One knows who she is and what her purpose is in the story. Her presence in the pictures is important and provides the children with a connection. Furthermore, the writing is done in an engaging manner and holds the child’s attention.
I shared this book with my 13 year old grandson who is an aficionado for all things Lincoln and he discovered things he was not aware of either.
An excellent children’s book that parents will enjoy reading with their children! This is book 4 in a series.
Victor Ramon Mojica is the excellent illustrator.
