What I thought:
Another wonderful addition to the award-winning Little
Miss History series!
Little Miss History Travels to USS SLATER Destroyer
Escort travels back in time to WW ll and the efficiency of this highly versatile
warship that successfully guided all 176 merchant ships in its charge across the Atlantic
during wartime. The story goes on to explain so many interesting details about
the warship’s life, crew, and captain, and the warship’s subsequent retirement
as a floating historical museum in Albany.
This is a fascinating journey into American history that all
readers will enjoy!
The writing is superb, and the artwork incorporated into
photo illustrations by Victor Ramon Mojica is incredible.
I received a free ARC of this book for an honest review.
