INTRO
(from Amazon)
 You’ll never guess what crazy dish the ancient Incan kings ate. But you can read all about it, and more, in If You Were Me and Lived in…Peru, the latest book in Carole P. Roman’s fun travel series for kids.
An exciting introduction to world cultures written for young readers ages three through eight, this new expedition takes kids to South America and gives them a colorful glimpse into what living in Peru is like. Highlighting a myriad of topics, including language, cuisine, climate, and history, this book teaches kids about diversity while also revealing to them the important truth that we are all connected.
Parents, grandparents, and teachers alike will love opening their children’s eyes to the world around them in a fun and easy way—and they’ll be happily surprised when they end up learning a few things themselves. Fair warning, parents: your kids will want to start celebrating a new February holiday after reading this book. But don’t worry. You can always tell them you’re making a certain special, royal Incan dish for dinner.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Roman applies her winning formula to Peru in a richly detailed book that makes cultural awareness fun..Roman offers A a lively look at the daily routines of kids in another nation in her continuing effort to help young readers see the similarities, as well as the differences, among the cultures around the globe....Each book follows the same format...to a five year old, familiarity is comforting and provides a solid base for exploration. Roman's books succeed by fostering this familiarity and using it to open up a new world for young readers." Sheila M. Trask Foreword Review Clarion Review

 REVIEW
 Sometimes we don't have any books for the small children that will allow them to begin to understand the ways of the culture of other countries.  Ms. Roman has given us a series about small countries and their ccultures.  Theese are a collection that keep grrowing all about the smalller countries and how they live.  Beautiful books, not just for children but adults also.  I've learned quite a few things a bout thee smaller countries and can't wait for more.  My sister has a small grandson and he gets the books when I am done with them.  He absolutely lovess them.  The books are written in a language of which smaller childreen can understand.  The colors are so bright and vibrant to keep the little ones attention. These books are so intersting that childrena ctually elarn  the different countries and all their ways, cultures, religions, what they eat and how they go about their everyday lives.  This is a book that should be added to the rest of Ms. Roman's books on the child's shelf to keep for brother or sister or rread again.  They're wonderful.  Absolutely wonderful.REVIEW
