MY THOUGHTS
I love reading all of Ms. Roman's books.   I read them then send them to my great grand daughter and her grandma reads them to her.   Every book Ms. Roman has written has a lesson of some kind to learn, and whether you're 2-80, you can always learn.  The books are always beautifully illustrated and go with the story.   Pictures leave a lasting impression on everyone, especially children.   This book is about Poland, founded in 1025.  Located in Central Europe and the capital is Warsaw.   Names and unfamiliar words have the pronunciation in parenthesis. I liked the page that gave the names for different food items and you, the reader gets to guess what they are.  The story tells of the different foods, places, sports and common names.     I liked the tour we were taken on to the Salt Mines. I like that at the end of the book there is a guide for pronouncing Polish words.  Even if you have never or will never be able to visit Poland, you get a  wonderful tour in this book and when you're done reading, you've visited a lot of places and learned a lot about the country. It's important that young ones get lessons in different cultures, lands, history of different countries, including our own.   This is another great cultural learning book to add to the others by Ms. Roman, to be read and read again.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for my unbiased view. I would give this book 5 STARS.
