Children's Book Review: If You Were Me... Books by Carole P Roman

I have a great Book Blogger/Author relationship with Carole Roman.  She is so generous in sending me her books and items to go along with them.  I have since donated all these books to our local library so that as many kids as possible can access these wonderful, educational and fun books.  Be sure to check out all of Carole Roman's books, HERE.

In all of the IF YOU WERE ME AND LIVED IN.....books, Roman gives simple educational explanations about the country's language, customs, people, food, and places. These books answer the kinds of questions kids are wondering about when meeting someone from another country, learning about it in school, or traveling there.  Forget about searching "Google" or "Wikipedia" and just get these books for your kids. Even a grown-up can learn from these books!

Did you know there were nine different time zones in Russia?  I didn't and I bet there are other neat things you would learn about Russia by reading this book with your child.  I know that I would really like to try some Russian food described in the book. It all sounds delicious!


IF YOU WERE ME AND LIVED IN AUSTRALIA

Reading about Australia just makes me want to visit there even more.  They have such a long history, being separated from the rest of the world for so many years.  I can only imagine the beauty and various creatures to see in the Great Barrier Reef. Share a bit of Australia with your kids by reading this book and learning together.


IF YOU WERE ME AND LIVED IN PORTUGAL

I didn't know much about Portugal before reading this book.  There were lots of interesting facts and tidbits about their culture that I never realized.  I appreciate that the author isn't just choosing the obvious countries to write about but the ones we may not know much about as well.

Children in early elementary school will really enjoy these books and not even realize they are learning about other cultures and countries.  These books are engaging with bright illustrations that fit the country and culture being written about.  A truly excellent series of books!
