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.
