Little Miss History Travels to Hyde Park, Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library & Museum: Adventure Books for All Ages, Volume 10 is a nonfiction historical book for children written by Barbara Ann Mojica and illustrated by Victor Ramon Mojica. While this is the tenth book in the series, each volume is independent of the others and can be read on its own. Little Miss History’s parents were often at a loss at how to answer all the questions their daughter had about the past. Since then, she’s traveled all over the world visiting historical sites and learning new things. In this book, she takes readers to Hyde Park, the family home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Roosevelt, who was the only American president to serve four terms, saw the country through the Great Depression and World War II. He also made dramatic and beneficial changes to how government serves the people. While president, his frequent visits to Hyde Park prompted people to refer to it as the Summer White House. He recorded his famous Fireside Chats there and set up his Presidential Library on the estate’s grounds.

This book is a fascinating look at our most iconic president and his home, Hyde Park. I loved learning more about FDR, especially his hobbies, the stables where he spent so much time as a boy and the details about his presidential library. The photographs of Hyde Park are stunning! Studying each picture made me feel as though I were actually there touring the house where FDR grew up and lived. Victor Ramon Mojica’s illustrations work perfectly with the text. His images of Little Miss History are grand fun and give a personal touch to the photographs, and his drawings of the Roosevelts are superb. I also appreciated the Glossary found at the back of the book. I’m planning on reading more books in this series based on the excellence of this one. This book is most highly recommended.
