Little Miss HISTORY has taken you to Mount Rushmore, the Statue of Liberty, and Ellis Island. She has lured you to adventures exploring nature in the rugged Sequoia National Park. Our hearts were saddened by Abraham Lincoln’s assassination at Ford’s Theater and witnessing a museum honoring the sacrifices of our military aboard the Intrepid. Little Miss HISTORY has guided us behind the doors of George Washington’s plantation home in Mount Vernon to take a peak at his life as a gentleman farmer. Now you can put your own creative touch on beautifully illustrated coloring pages chosen from her adventures. Accompanying the pages are quotes from famous figures in history to discuss with family and friends. As our intrepid Little Miss HISTORY guide cautions us, “If you don’t know your history, you don’t know what you’re talking about.” Gather the family together, show your creativity and make your own history.
