After reading a novel set in Scotland this week, I felt it was the perfect time to learn a bit about Scotland's culture as well. Both authors did a fine job of teaching all the wonderful things about Scotland. In fact, I even learned something while reading about this great country!

I had no idea that Scotland was made up of 790 islands. I am sure I learned this fact at some point in my education, but it never stuck with me. Of course, when you think of Scotland, the mystical Loch Ness Monster always comes to mind, but there is so much more to learn about Scotland.

Scotland is definitely on my list of countries I'd like to visit some day and this book just confirmed it. By sharing this book and others by Roman, you can teach your children about all the wonderful places that make up our world.  These books share their country's language, culture, food, and sports with the reader and offer a look into a country that is different from where we live.  You just might find that we have things in common too!

If you are looking for books to teach your children about other cultures, I highly recommend this series of books by Carole P Roman. They would make an excellent addition to a home or school library.
