Book Review: If You Were Me and Lived In…Hungary 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…Hungary is another installment in the “A Child’s Introduction to Culture Around the World” series by Carole P. Roman. A girl and a boy are dressed like they are from Hungary and show where it is located in the world on a globe. Important facts about Hungary and what it’s like to live there are explained from their viewpoint. They explain what the capital is, some common names for boys and girls, what children call their mom and dad, some famous tourist sites, foods, a famous invention that was invented there, etc.

I like that this book reveals important facts about Hungary for children to learn and I think adults will learn information from it as well. It was interesting for me to learn (or be reminded if I was taught this in my school days) that Hungary isn’t surrounded by any oceans, and that it borders other countries. I thought it was humorous how the children in this book had their picture take in front of a famous place in Hungary, like the book explains that people in Hungary love to do. It combines different topics that children are usually interested in…sports, dolls, food, family, and some they are probably learning about…currency, influencers, tourist locations, etc.

Another great addition to this series that is both educational and fun!

My review = 5 out of 5 stars
