Welcome to Hungary. If You Were Me and Lived in... Hungary: A Child’s Introduction to Cultures Around the World by Carole P. Roman is an educational and informative book that will introduce children to another country in the series, Hungary. Those people living in Hungary find themselves landlocked in Central Europe as it is surrounded by other countries on all four sides. The book introduces readers to the sights and sounds of Hungary, its culture, people, food, and places of interest. All the books in this series are good to read as the series not only gives information about other countries, but also encourages children to find out about other countries and develop an interest in traveling and discovering new lands.

I like the way the author introduces readers to Hungary as the book takes children on a virtual excursion. The illustrations are delightful and charming and they make the author’s words vivid and come alive to readers. Every book in this series is worth having in one’s personal collection and they are good for interactive sessions in classrooms and school libraries. The author makes learning fun because the books are not too wordy and take children to distant lands, making them want to travel and see places. The pronunciation guide at the back of each book is useful and helps children learn how certain words are pronounced. It is a good book to discovery Hungary from a child’s point of view as it teaches the basics about the country in an interesting way. It is a good book for educators, parents, and teachers to use as the author’s writing style is simple and is easy for children to understand.
