Book Review: If You Were Me and Lived in...France" 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…France is another installment in the A Child's Introduction to Culture Around the World series by Carole P. Roman. Children will learn where France is located on the globe, what the capital of France is, common boy and girl names, a popular food choice, what children call their moms and dads, a popular sport, the name for French currency, a popular tourist attraction, a major holiday similar to the 4th of July in America, and what school is called in France. There is also a pronunciation guide in the back of the book to help readers with words used throughout the book.

The book starts off with explaining where France is located on the globe and follows through with the topics that the other books I have read in the A Child's Introduction to Culture Around the World series have followed, that are listed above. Sometimes it’s really hard to picture what life is like in another country; I think that the book does a great job of helping children to visualize what people in France look like through the colorful illustrations. The illustrations also helped me to imagine what some of the restaurants and other places in France look like, so I imagine that it will probably help children in the same way.

Another great addition to the A Child's Introduction to Culture Around the World series!


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.

  1. No problem, Carole. It makes my day when I find out more "If You Were Me and Lived in..." and "Captain No Beard" books have been sent to me to review. Thanks to you and your publisher for the blessing!
