This is another book in the educational series that takes children on journeys to other countries. I previously reviewed IF YOU WERE ME AND LIVED IN…FRANCE. You can see that review, HERE.
In IF YOU WERE ME AND LIVED IN…KENYA the author firsts introduces the reader to where Kenya is in the world and then introducing the language and culture. Many of the customs and people of the country are shown through vivid pictures. There is even a pronunciation key in the back for help with the native language.
IF YOU WERE ME AND LIVED IN….NORWAY
An Introduction to Learning About Other Cultures

In this book, we are introduced to life in Norway. It begins with explaining how during parts of the year, the sun never sets and is why Norway is called “The Land of the Midnight Sun”. It also talks about it’s favorite destination, The Snow Hotel and the many cold weather activities you could participate in.
As in the other books, there is a helpful pronunciation key at the end of the book.
I really like this series of books and the way they share factual information in a fun way. These books are perfect for children in Kindergarten – Second Grade and would make a great addition to any classroom library.
