If You Were Me and Lived In...Ancient Greece: An Introduction to Civilizations Throughout Time by Carole P. Roman is an educational and informative book for children that is useful when it comes to developing an interest in travel, discovering foreign lands, and learning about different cultures. Greece is one of the ancient civilizations and the book speaks about the beliefs and culture of ancient Greece. It is a fun book for all travelers and those who are interested in reading about new places. Through this book, children will learn that Greece introduced the concept of democracy. The ancient gods, market places, food, and the sights and sounds of Greece are tempting enough for young readers to want to visit Greece.

I am really enjoying the books in this series. If You Were Me and Lived In...Ancient Greece is simple and well narrated and will make traveling an enjoyable experience. The illustrations give clarity to the author’s words and children will find it easy to comprehend what the author is trying to convey. This book is a must-have in school libraries as the contents are informative and educational and they have been expressed in a fun and interactive manner. The manner in which the author speaks about the Greek gods is interesting, and the glossary at the end of the book is helpful. Reading this book will help to increase young readers' knowledge and it is always good to learn about other countries, their culture, food, customs, religion, and beliefs. Carole Roman’s series will make everyone enjoy history and this book can be read by older children too. I recommend this series to all parents to have in their personal collection at home.
