About the Book: Where can you explore life on a submarine, an aircraft carrier, and outer space all in one place?

What I Thought:
Barbara Ann Mojica has done it again! "Intrepid" is a wonderful, well written addition to this great history series. The author has a great gift for writing history that is interesting and so much fun to read. In, Little Miss HISTORY Travels to INTREPID Sea, Air & Space Museum, the author introduces the reader to the history of the USS INTREPID, the famous attack carrier used in America’s military conflicts. USS INTREPID is now a sea, air, and space museum in New York City, and this is where Little Miss History takes us in the book by way of important facts of the carrier's history. The use of photographs and colorful illustrations by the illustrator enhances the book with visual appeal. Highly recommended.
