If You Were Me and Lived in
by Carole P. Roman is part of a series of books to introduce children to different
cultures around the world. It is a nice
way to establish an understanding of children who may look different but are
the same in many ways. The book explains
common names, terms for parents, coins, and a variety of other daily activities
in which children are interested.
The book has brightly colored full-page illustrations that bring the book to life. A few simple Spanish names and words are introduced, and included is a pronunciation guide at the back of the book. I enjoyed the mini tour of
with this book and highly recommend it for young children.
