A Child's Introduction to Culture Around the World
Carole P. Roman
Award winning and best selling author Carole P. Roman travels to beautiful Portugal. This pro active book invites children to think about Portugal's many wonders from the sunny Azores to the wide variety of food. 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!

I have read and reviewed quite a few of Ms. Roman's books. She not only sends the wonderful little books but there sometimes there is a flag, a coin, a pencil and other items that she sends also. Children love these kind of things. When I finish reading and reviewing the books, I send them to my sister's grandson. He is just at that right age to learn about these wonderful places and their cultures. Ms. Roman always has an educational lesson to the books. The lesson however, is a fun part of the book, not boring, but fun and interesting. The reader learns about the different countries and their language, their customs, food dishes, important places in their country and much more. Ms. Roman presents these countries with fun and adds the educational part in with colorful pictures in a way that doesn't take away from the interest of the child. Children's attention span tends to wear out quickly. The author also takes into consideration some of the questions that children may have about the countries. She gives answers that are easy for the child to understand. These books are not just for children. Grown up can learn a lot from them also. These books are wonderful little books that children and adults can learn about different countries and their cultures. They would be a great collection to keep on the shelf to read again and if you need a fact about a country, check out these books. The answer may be right there.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author, Carole P. Roman for my view of the book. No other compensation took place.
I would give this book 5 STARS.
