I learned something new on Tar Pits from Miss Little History

It was such a pleasure to read the new travel adventures of Little Miss History. Once again the authors are waking children’s (and adults like me) curiosity on a brilliant way, with wonderful images.

It was fun to visit with her ‘The Observation Pit’ first museum at La Brea. I must admit I always thought ‘tar pits’ was an human invention, thanks to Little Miss History I know it is a nature’s creation.
I liked all the images, nevertheles
