In order to expand your horizons, it is always great to learn about the world around you and about those people that are different than you. Reading If You Were Me and Lived in... Kenya: A Child's Introduction to Cultures around the World (Volume 5) by Carole P. Roman, your child will learn about the beauty of Kenya. This beautifully illustrated, colorful children’s book offers various aspects of the Kenyan culture. In this book, young readers will learn about the currency called the shilling, the capital Nairobi, the Masai Mara National Reserve, samosa, cricket, the food and the Mombasa Carnival that are all special to the Kenyan culture. As always, to expand your child's learning experience, the glossary that Carole adds at the end of each book in all of her If You Were Me and Lived in… series truly enhances a child's intellectual abilities.

Carole Roman’s If You Were Me and Lived in… series and the illustrators that she uses create a world traveler's experience. This book, as seen through the eyes of the children of the various cultures, makes this a special treat. I loved this book because I felt like I was walking through the parks, streets and markets as I witnessed the numerous events mentioned in the book. Reading about Kenya, Israel, China or the Mayan Empire is such a great way to introduce the wonders of each country to young readers. If you are looking for a book that is entertaining and that will encourage your child to want to read more, this is a great place to start.
