I had the opportunity to review Carole P. Roman’s introduction to learning about other cultures called, If You Were Me and Lived In… Australia. I read this children’s book to my three year old daughter and she enjoyed the story. It was easy to read and easy for her to understand. Her favorite part was learning what kids her age called their mom and dad in Australia. She cannot read this on her yet but it will certainly be a book we keep on the bookshelf for years to come. We received a soft back copy but it is also available on Amazon in the Kindle version, too!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR AND BOOK:
Former social studies teacher Carole P. Roman has penned a new addition in her exiting explorations of foreign cultures and customs with “If You Were Me and Lived in … Australia”. In her years as a teacher, parent and grandparent, Roman noticed that there were few, if any, books about other cultures for young children. Roman has remedied the deficit and now introduces the new Australia installment in a series that educates kids, parents and teachers, alike.
Roman recognizes that children love to discover the differences and similarities of other people and places in far-off lands. In this series, she describes details that kids can relate to. Tailored to children from 3-to-8-years old, her writing is simple but does not talk down to youngsters.
Among the topics that are introduced in this journey to Australia are the unusual indigenous animals, the extraordinary Great Barrier Reef, the currency, the beloved game of cricket and the national holiday, Australia Day, as well as the special nicknames people have for one another and the curious taste sensation, Vegemite.
