Carole Roman is continuing her series of informational books for children that introduces them to countries and cultures all over our world. I have shared many of the books in this series with you and you can see them all by entering IF YOU WERE ME AND LIVED IN in the search box to the right.

This book shares the many wonderful pieces of heritage and culture from those who live in Egypt. There is so much to share about this country's history from it being one of our oldest nations to the ancient pyramids. It is hard to fathom how many years the pyramids have stood and been visited by millions.

 Food is very much a part of their culture and the unique dishes might make children curious about what is delicious and a treat to children in Egypt. I found their national holiday of Sham -al-Nessim to resemble one of our family's favorite holiday traditions. I wonder if that is where we got it from.

The illustrations seem very accurate to the culture and are sometimes placed over actual photos of the land or scenery of Egypt. The expressions help tell the family's story as we travel through some of their favorite parts of living in Egypt.

Roman has not left anything out and opens the doors of yet another interesting culture, introducing readers to the language, the food, and the uniqueness of Egypt. Another wonderful addition to the series.
