Book Review: If You Were Me and Lived in...Scotland by Carole P. Roman

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

If You Were Me and Lived In…Scotland  is another installment in the “A Child’s Introduction to Cultures Around the World” series by Carole P. Roman. A girl and a boy are dressed like they are from Scotland and happily show where it is located in the world on a globe. Important facts are revealed about Scotland throughout the book, such as what the capital is and what it is famous for, the name for currency, some common names for boys and girls, what children call their mom and dad, a famous tourist site, foods, games, and types of clothes worn. Pronunciation is given for different Scottish words as the story progresses, and there is also a pronunciation guide in the back of the book.

Children will probably notice some similarities and differences between the culture of their country and the culture of Scotland in this book. I liked that it teaches children what kilts are, a famous type of traditional clothes worn in Scotland. I imagined that kilts are worn there on an everyday basis, but this book explains that the ancestors of the children may have dressed in kilts, so it might not be worn as much today...or even at all. Children might also find the information shared about unicorns in relation to Scotland interesting.

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