If you have read Carole P. Roman’s earlier series of If You Were Me and Lived in…” books
you would by this time feel as though you are on a round the world tour. All of the books in this series answer the type
of questions of most interest to children.
They also teach children that no matter now far apart you live, no
matter how different in looks, children and their families have more in common
than they have differences with other children around the world.
I enjoy reading the books to my granddaughter, and I learn from them too. The stories about local historic buildings, foods, and holidays, and other interesting facts about local culture make these books informative and fun. In this book, I enjoyed learning about the special Russian hat, the shapka ushanka, and that my little nesting dolls are called Matryoshka dolls.
I highly recommend all of the books in this series for parents, grandparents, schools, and preschools. I would even recommend them for Sunday Schools in churches with an interest in missions to begin to cultivate an interest in other cultures.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
