Carole P. Roman’s If You Were Me and Lived In…Italy!

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

Overview: Let’s learn about the country that is famous for pasta, wine, the Coliseum, and the current seat of power for the Holy Roman Catholic Church.

Story Telling: We have and educational book here. I would advise this one for eight-year-olds.

Artwork: The illustrations are still cute and more realistic than cartoon-ish.

Likes: Some of the information is fascinating.

Mrs. Roman still keeps her pronunciation keys with these travel-inspired books.

Dislikes: I get that most children can pronounce spaghetti, but does that mean that we have to pick the Italian words based on their difficulties?

Favorite Character and Quote: It’s difficult to find these in educational works of this size. The spoiling effect can be stumbled upon too easily. This time, I’m taking a pass.

Favorite Scene: I liked the emphasis on family in this one.

Conclusion: This book has fascinating information. But it is one of the more complicated additions to the series. Be ready for some questions when you share this one with your ‘travelers.’
