SYNOPSIS

Roman’s If You Were Me books have a simple, winning formula: portray children from other countries and explain how familiar items and customs are the same, and how they differ, in the country being discussed… The appeal of Roman’s If You Were Me series is that this information is not offered in the bland style of an encyclopedia entry, but rather as part of a tour of real life in India…It’s this organic conversational tone that keeps the book interesting and inspires kids’ own curiosity for other cultures.” Peter Dabbene The Foreword Review Join Carole P. Roman as she takes you to explore the friendly country of Portugal!

REVIEW First of all thank you so much to the author and Bostick Communications for allowing me to read and review this book. This book was well worth the 5 stars that I gave it in fact I would have given it more if I could have done as it was such an educational and well illustrated book.. It is part of a series of books which are good for introducing children to the cultures that there are around the world and I fully intend to get all the others apart from the one on Russia as I already have that one. Even I as an adult found it interesting to learn about the customs and traditions in Portugal and I thought It was nice that it included some of the portuguese words that a child can learn. I am sure my son will enjoy this book as he gets older and we will be using it as part of the Geography curriculum when we are Home Schooling.

First of all thank you so much to the author and Bostick Communications for allowing me to read and review this book. This book was well worth the 5 stars that I gave it in fact I would have given it more if I could have done as it was such an educational and well illustrated book.. It is part of a series of books which are good for introducing children to the cultures that there are around the world and I fully intend to get all the others apart from the one on Russia as I already have that one. Even I as an adult found it interesting to learn about the customs and traditions in Russia and I thought It was nice that it included some of the Russian words that a child can learn. I am sure my son will enjoy this book as he gets older and we will be using it as part of the Geography curriculum when we are Home Schooling. This is a book that i will both recommend to others as well as but for friends children.
