LITTLE MISS HISTORY TRAVELS TO LA BREA TAR PITS & MUSEUM
Ever wonder about life in the Ice Age? Little Miss HISTORY is “stuck” back in time at LA BREA TAR PITS & MUSEUM in her eighth adventure of the award-winning Little Miss HISTORY Travels to…. children’s educational nonfiction series.
Springs of liquid petroleum and a great lake of pitch filled with exploding bubbles once dotted the landscape of modern Los Angeles. Scientists discovered fossils of plants and animals like mammoths, sloths, and saber-tooth tigers that lived here thousands of years ago.
George Page dreamed of opening a museum to display fossil finds and a glass-enclosed laboratory nicknamed the “Fish Bowl” where visitors could see scientists at work cleaning and categorizing their current discoveries. What will visitors unearth as they meander through the gardens, view giant skeletons, and gaze down into the pits? Be careful, and watch out for the tar seeps.
