"If You Were Me and Lived in...France-A Child's Introduction to Culture Around the World" is the second book in Carole P. Roman's remarkable series about countries all over the globe. With each book covering a different nation, Roman opens up a world of wonder while highlighting the fact that underneath it all we are far more alike than we might have imagined. Focusing on what life would be like from a child's viewpoint, she examines the diversity of the people who make up our planet. (Goodreads)
My Thoughts:
This is the second book in the series by Carole P. Roman which introduces children to different cultures around the world. In this book it tells kids what it would be like if they were a child living in France. They learn about what continent they would live on, what their capital would be, what their name might be, and what they would call their parents. They also get to learn about French currency, tourist attractions, what they would eat, and what sports are popular.
I really love stories that teach my kids something, whether it be facts or life lessons. This is a great series for teaching your children about life in other countries. They are able to learn a few things about what people live like in France and how it's different from or similar to the way they live. This book would be wonderful if you are teaching your kids about France or other cultures. The illustrations are bold an colorful. I really enjoy these books and so do my kids. They are informative yet fun. I would definitely recommend this series and we're looking forward to the 3rd book. It would be a great addition to your child's library.
*I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
