If You Were Me and Lived in... Scotland: A Child’s Introduction to Cultures Around the World by Carole P. Roman takes children this time to visit Scotland where they learn about the culture, customs, places of interest, lifestyle, and food of the people living there. Scotland is part of the United Kingdom and has more than 790 islands in the North Sea. Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, is the second most populous city of Scotland. Children will learn about their mythological animal, the unicorn, which represents grace, purity, healing, and happiness. They get to see the architecture of the place which has been inspired by ancient Greece and Rome. A trip to Loch Ness, which is known for its mysterious creature, Nessie, is also fascinating. They are introduced to Scottish food, and a favorite sport, golf. By the time children finish reading this book, it will give them the feeling that they are living in Scotland.
I like all the children’s book written by Carole P. Roman and the books in this series. She knows the minds of a youthful audience and knows exactly what to convey to them. This book is informative and educational and the way she has expressed and presented the book makes it a captivating read. She makes learning interesting and fun. The pronunciation glossary at the end of the book is quite helpful when it comes to pronouncing words properly and understanding their meanings. This series is definitely a must-have in one's personal collection as it not only gives children information about other countries, but also encourages them to travel and discover new lands. There cannot be a better way to introduce children to Scotland!
