Next stop is –
Take your children or students on a trip around the world with Carole P. Roman’s If You Were Me and Lived In. series
of interesting books that introduce children to cultures around the world.
The books begin with information about
location, cities, and rivers. There is a
pronunciation guide in the back of the book, but also next to each word that
may be confusing for young readers. What
I like about the books is that they describe things that children are most
interested in and answer those questions that children would ask. What do you
call your parents? Where do you go for fun? What kind of toys do you play with?
What kind of foods do you eat? The book
also describes holidays, local events, schools, and much more.
These books make learning about other people around the world a fun experience. This is a very informative and entertaining series of books. I highly recommend them for parents, grandparents, preschools and early educators.
