Book Review: If You Were Me and Lived in...Peru 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…Peru is another installment in the A Child's Introduction to Cultures Around the World series by Carole P. Roman! Children will learn about how many people live in the capital city of Peru, popular names children are sometimes given, foods eaten, what a doll is called, a tourist attraction, a game, sports, a festival, their name for currency, what school is called in the Peru language, plus some other important facts. There are beautiful illustrations throughout the book, illustrating what was written about on the other pages. There is also a pronunciation guide with definitions in the back of the book, for the words that are used in the story.

I liked that the book starts out with what the country of Peru looks like and how it also shows where the capital of Peru (Lima) is located. It was also interesting to see how the children in Peru might dress as they were pointing where Peru is located on the globe on the next page. This book will show children similarities and differences in the Peru culture comparison to their own culture. I think that children would like learning about the frog game and the sports that they play there. It might also interest them to see pictures of what their food looks like.

This is a very interesting series of books for children. I think they will help (and probably continue to help) children learn about their classmates from different countries.

My review = 5 out of 5 stars

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