If You Were Me and Lived in…
– an Introduction to Learning About Other
Cultures by Carole P. Roman is another in this educational series for children
Pre-K to age eight. This series teaches
children about their peers around the world.
It answers questions that children would ask. What do you play with? What
do you like to eat? What do you call your parents? Where would you go for fun?
What kind of holidays do you celebrate? Portugal
The illustrations are bright and colorful and portray the story well. There is a two-page pronunciation guide in the back of the book for words and phrases.
What fun this would be for preschools or early grades for learning about the world! I can see it being used in a classroom setting with children dressing up, learning about a specific country, and then giving a presentation to the class using the words learned in the book.
