Carole P. Roman’s If You Were Me and Lived in Greece

I received this book courtesy of Mrs. Roman for the purpose of a fair and honest review.

Overview: In this edition of Mrs. Roman’s Cultural series, children are invited to learn a little about Greece.

Story Telling: This book seems to be aimed at eight to ten-year-olds. The regional words are followed by their pronunciations. As well there is a basic dictionary at the back of the book. The illustration are both charming and invite the children to see if they can guess the answers to some of the questions.

Likes: I liked how Mrs. Roman seemed to want a conversation with her audience. She didn’t come to this book with the attitude of “see how smart I am.” It was more of a basics about Greece lesson.

Dislikes: There isn’t much to dislike about this book.

Favorite Scene: My favorite part of the book was the section on St. Basil. That was quite interesting.

Conclusion: This is not a story book. It doesn’t even pretend to be one. But it is an excellent book for home-schoolers as well as those parents who just want to challenge their children.
