Yesterday, I went to the FDR Presidential Home & Museum to hear Bret Baier speak about his newest book. Mr. Baier is Chief Political Anchor and anchor of Special Report with Brett Baier at Fox News.

The author explained how and why he chose to write this book Baier discussed FDR, Churchill, and Stalin’s secret meeting at The Teheran Conference. He spoke about their fears and expectations. Baier revealed overlooked “nuggets” of history that often change the course of history.

The book emphasizes FDR’s strength of character but also suggests his doubts and fears. Both Churchill and FDR distrusted Stalin. Still, they realized that they could not win the War without his help.

FDR gambled with his life to travel halfway across the world across enemy lines to talk. Here the three world giants would lay the groundwork to win the War.

I met with Mr. Baier, and presented him with my own book, Little Miss HISTORY Travels to Hyde Park, Home of FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT & Presidential Library.

Mr. Baier and I share common goals to restore teaching history and civics in our schools from a very young age.

One of the recent reviews for the book

The legendary city of Tombstone, Arizona, is the setting for a story where readers can meet well-known pioneers and incredible entrepreneurs with exceedingly strong-minded determination, folks who led hard but interesting lives. This legend of heroes, outlaws, and justice, of history preserved in one story, educational in a very entertaining format, presents children with the opportunity to explore the meaning of the American past. The mix of photos and illustrations will give readers a better understanding of how the American West was built, and what happened during and after our westward development. Throughout the book, children will learn about the legendary landmarks, exemplified and beautifully executed by talented artist Victor Mojica. His brilliant art and the smartly created storyline by Barbara Mojica will bring readers face to face with the incredible characters who make this book memorable and very special. It’s truly an educational gift that will elevate the way children learn. It will draw them into the inspiring story of amazing, courageous people who made a difference in the world. No matter what difficulties they faced on their road, they turned them into challenges and never gave up until they reached their dreams. It is important to have role models in life. And the characters from this book offer just that, with examples which will enlarge the self-esteem and knowledge of readers.

This is the perfect children’s book for learning. The artwork is striking and the text is informative as well as interesting, as usual. Vibrant, simple artwork covers Old Wild West history nicely, and brief but important information not only allows children to expand their horizons but also to increase their ability to absorb new things. It’s pure inspiration to explore, and it ensures engagement on the part of kids! So hop on your horse with Little Miss History and take an educational ride to the Wild West! Another wonderful book by an award-winning team, Barbara and Victor Mojica: “Little Miss History Travels to Tombstone!” It’s fun to read!
