If You Were Me and Lived in... Israel: A Child's Introduction to Cultures Around the World (Volume 19) by Carole P. Roman is a beautiful children’s book depicting the culture of Israel. In this book, children will learn everything that they need to know about Israeli culture. Young readers will be in awe as they learn about the various wonders of Israel from the foods, football (known as soccer in the U.S.), Jerusalem, which is a city with an ancient history and is one of the oldest in the world, why people read and write from right to left, and a brief history behind the Dead Sea. In this book, the glossary adds a special touch which offers an enhanced and enriched education about the history of Israel. Your child will love this book so much that they will want to share it with their friends.

I truly enjoyed If You Were Me and Lived in... Israel: A Child's Introduction to Cultures Around the World because it offered so much history about some things that I personally was unaware of - from the brief history of the Dead Sea and the four neighborhood quadrants that were built in 1538 AD by the Turkish king, Suleiman the Magnificent, for the Christian, Muslim, Armenian and Jewish faiths, to the Maccabiah Games that athletes compete in every year, which is similar to the Olympic Games. Carole has so many of these types of books in her children's educational book series that it will make you feel as if you're a world traveler.
