If You Were Me
If You Were Me and Lived in Italy
Carole P. Roman
This book is in a series about children from around the world. Young readers will get a glimpse into the lives of children just like them who live in a different country. The format is like a story, but is informative. The book begins with the surroundings and places the children might live, it continues with family, food, and school. It give Italian words and their pronunciation so that the young readers can try out the words for themselves. Most of the pictures are illustrations, but a few of the more well known places are photographs. The book concludes with a pronunciation guide.
My children love these books and look forward to getting them. It is fun to try pronouncing the words and talking about how different other places are from our own home. This book would work well for school as well, either in a school library or used for in a social studies program. Check out the other country books by this author as well.
I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
