IF YOU WERE ME AND LIVED IN...
An Introduction to Civilizations Throughout Time
Carole P. Roman
Award-winning author Carole P. Roman started writing as a dare from one of her sons and combines her teaching past with her love of exploration and interest in the world around us. She has two highly successful series and is launching this new exciting series about civilizations throughout time. While she is still working in her family business, this has enabled her to share her sense of humor as well as love for history and culture with the audience she adores. Roman lives on Long Island with her husband and near her children.
Paula Tabor (www.paulapaint.com) has won awards of her own in art shows from Florida to Ohio. She's been an illustrator, portraitist, caricaturist - even a balloon twister! She lives in the rural outskirts of Houston, Texas with a beloved, and rather large, Lab-mix named Jasper.
Join Carole P. Roman and travel through time to visit the most interesting civilizations throughout history in the first four books of her new series. Learn what kind of food you might eat in Ancient Greece, the clothes you wore in 15th century Renaissance Italy, what your name could be in Elizabethan England, and what Colonial American children did for fun. If You Were Me and Lived in...does for history what her other award-winning series did for culture. So get on-board this time-travel machine and discover the world through the eyes of a young person just like you.

Great new series from Carole P. Roman. This book is not just for children but adults will love it too. It contains some interesting information in it. As you read to your young ones , you'll find it's interesting and very informative while still fun. The history lessons can be a learning project in this series, An Introduction to Civilizations Throughout Time. This is Volume 3 and it show different cultures of the past in the world. I have reviewed quite a bit for Ms. Roman and I love everything I have reviewed. It's sad that children are not taught the history that we not so young, were taught. We need more of these kind of books to teach children in an interesting and fun way. This book not only tells about the way the people live, what they eat and so much more. Things that are fact and yet maybe things we didn't know. Things were not all cake and punch back then. Things were hard. Often living conditions, food, the strictness of the law and so much more were bad. Disease was prominent and people still had to make a go of it. This is told in an honest and yet, easy way for children to understand. At the back of the book is a glossary of words and terms that were used back then. There is also a list of important people that lived back then. The artwork done is very vibrant, colorful and interesting showing what the pages talk about. A great way for spending some history learning time together with you child or grandchild.
