If You Were Me and Lived In. . .

If You Were Me and Lived In. . .
The Mayan Empire
Carole P. Roman
Children can learn about what it would be like if they were a child living during ancient times of the Mayan Empire. Colorful illustrations and photography show various aspects of life in a Mayan city. The book is told in story form and covers geography, history, food, games, home life, and holidays. All of the unfamiliar words have a pronunciation guide directly after the word as well as included in the glossary at the back of the book. There is also couple of pages listing some of the famous names from the culture and how they were significant.

My children loved the book and it opened up the conversation for more discussion and research about the Mayan culture and what it's like to live there. The author does a great job of getting information across without being too detailed or overwhelming. The book would be a good resource for schools or home school parents to add to the curriculum. 

I received a copy of this book. All thoughts expressed are my own.
