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.

As soon as I opened the package for this review, my daughter was asking if I could read the children’s book to her because she loves anything and everything about animals. We sat down on the couch and we started to read the story. She thought the illustrations were funny and I explained to her that a boy a little older than you wrote and made the pictures in the story. She was amazed and now she wants to make her own book too! This is a nice story describing different whales around the world. My daughter’s favorite was the beluga whales since the illustration made her laugh as well as the name of the whale.

I look forward to reviewing more stories by Alexander Luke and Carole P. Roman. This children’s book will be read many times to my daughter and hopefully to our future children, too.

I had the opportunity to review a children’s book, Slippery Willie’s Stupid, Ugly Shoes by Larry Peterson. It is an easy read for school-aged children where they can relate to the message. Peterson depicts an excellent message that is it okay to be different than everyone else and sometimes your own fear is the biggest hurdle. Many children face bullying in school by their peers and this story gives children courage to be themselves.

I wanted to read this to my daughter but it is a little too mature for her age right now but I would love to purchase the book for her to have when she is older to read and understand the message of accepting differences.  Everyone is not the same and you should not put a person down or make fun of them because they are not like you.

 

 

{Slippery Willie Synopsis}  Willie Wiggles hates his slippery feet. He just slips, slides and spins all over the place. But what he hates even more are the special shoes that have been made for him that will help him to walk just like all the other kids. Willie thinks that they are the “stupidest, ugliest shoes in the whole world.”

Discover how sometimes we worry about things about ourselves when actually there is nothing to worry about in the first place.

 

 

{About the Author}  Larry Peterson was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. As a freelancer, he has written many newspaper columns for local publications. “Slippery Willie’s Stupid, Ugly Shoes” is his first children’s book. Peterson has lived in Pinellas Park, Florida for the past 30 years.
