Book Review: If You Were Me and Lived In...India by Carole P. Roman

*****This review is meant for parents, teachers, and other people that work with children to read.*****

If You Were Me and Lived In…India is another installment in the A Child's Introduction to Culture Around the World series by Carole P. Roman. The book starts off with explaining where India is located on the globe. It follows the topics of the other books I have read in the series, providing information about the capital city of India, common boys and girls names, what children call their moms and dads, the name for Indian currency, a popular tourist attraction, foods, a popular sport (game), a major holiday, and what school is called in India. There is also a pronunciation guide in the back of the book to help readers with words used throughout the book.

I am glad to be able to continue seeing the pattern of how the books teach about the same topics in each of the A Child's Introduction to Culture Around the World series. I believe this is a very orderly way for children to be able to compare the differences with each of the countries in the series. The pictures included throughout the book help children visualize what it’s like to live in India as well. For instance, if the children have no idea what the game cricket is like there is a picture of a group of children playing it to show them what the game is like.

I love reading and reviewing books in the A Child's Introduction to Culture Around the World series! I believe they are great way to help children learn about people from other countries and cultures.

My review= 5 out of 5 stars

Disclosure of material connection: I received a free copy of this book from Red Feather Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
