This is my first introduction into Carole P. Roman’s new series in which she not only takes us around the world, but also back in time.
These is much more information in this book than her current day If You Were Me books and are more for older children that will understand the time frame factor. There are also topics that are more appropriate for an older child, as in forms of government, war, prisoners, etc. I learned quite a bit about ancient
from her description of their meals, customs and lifestyle. There are unique
topics that will fascinate children and create interest in learning more.
I did not care for the overemphasis on the Greek gods, with polytheism introduced on one page, a paragraph about each one of the gods individually on following pages, and then a two page list and explanation of all of them again.
I think this is a promising new series and something for the older child.
I received a copy of If You Were Me and Lived In...Ancient Greece in exchange for an honest review.
