Author Carole P. Roman does a great job in providing educational books for children. Not only are they full of beautiful, colorful illustrations, but her books educate the young reader on the culture of the country that is being discussed in the book. If You Were Me and Lived in... Mexico: A Child's Introduction to Cultures Around the World doesn't disappoint because it offers the same concept and style of Carole’s other books within the series. In this book, children will learn about the words, foods and terms that make Mexico so special. Like did you know that Chichen Itza (Che-chin It-sa) is a complex of ancient Mayan ruins in Yucatan, Mexico that is formed and shaped like a pyramid? What are Mayan ruins? Get this book to discover the answer to this question and many more.
I am a fan of Carole’s work because of the simple way that she presents the information, yet the educational aspect of the material shines through. With any of her books you will discover that your child is continually learning about the different cultures, foods and historical aspects behind each country. I come away after reading one of her books having learned something new that I wasn't aware of about that country. If you are looking for a book or a series of educational books for your child or school, pick up not only this book, but the others that Carole P. Roman has to offer; you will not be disappointed.
