IF YOU WERE ME AND LIVED IN SOUTH KOREA by Carole P. Roman

IF YOU WERE ME AND LIVED IN...                        5 STARS
SOUTH KOREA
An Introduction to Learning About Other Cultures
 by Carole P. Roman





OVERVIEW-
 Carole P. Roman takes you on a journey this time to Asia, landing in South Korea. Once again, children can learn how life is like for young people on the other side of the globe. From food to famous landmarks, they will learn that's it's easy to find something in common with people in different countries.


REVIEW:
This is the third book of the "IF YOU WERE ME AND LIVED IN..." series, the author, Carole P. Roman takes us on an adventure to South Korea. The journey begins with the author showing children where the country of South Korea is. A brother and sister take you through their world showing the things all children enjoy in their world. The book is not only fun and interesting but educational.Then we go on to Seoul, the capital, and a small lesson in the history of the country.  The author never overwhelms the child with too much information.

The book contains places to see and some names of people. In this book there is a celebrated holiday,the clothes they wore and presents they would receive. One thing I thought was quite useful was the vocabulary of words and  pronunciations at the end of the book. Ms. Roman never fails to make an interesting and educational book for the wee ones.  The illustrations in the book are so colorful and children respond well to colors. The book is dedicated to some very special friends of Ms. Roman who are from South Korea.  You can find more information and pictures at Ms. Roman's blog.  I think this book should be read by the young and the young at heart.  Maybe the wee ones can't read but they can be read to.  That's how they learn.  If you have little ones in your home or grandchildren,  pull them onto your lap and show them the wonderful, colorful illustrations and read the story to t hem.  The author, Carole P. Roman writes wonderful, interesting, colorful and enjoyable books, with a little education put in.  Children will love these books.

I would give this book a solid 5 STARS.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author, Carole P. Roman for this unbiased review.
