If You Were Me and Lived in...Poland is another informative children's book in the Child's Introduction to Culture Around the World series by Carole P. Roman. The book starts off with a Polish boy and a girl pointing to where Poland is on the globe. They are dressed in clothes that children in Poland might likely be dressed in. The story explains that Polish people are called Polanie, and what that word means. The year the Polish constitution was written and Poland was founded is given also. Other important facts, such as what the capital of Poland is, a background of mermaids in relation to the capital. popular boys and girls names, popular foods, popular vacation spots, how kids like to spend their free time, and a famous astronomer from Poland are also given throughout the story.
This book is a very interesting way for children to learn about Poland! I like how some of the pictures combine photos with drawings, which I think will make the facts presented in this book fun for children. The Pronunciation Guide in the back of the book puts the English words in this book in comparison to their Polish pronunciations in alphabetical order, which I think is a good guide for language review of the words used in this book. I also liked that the format follows the same format of the other books I have read in this series!
My review= 5 out of 5 stars
I received this book free for an honest and unbiased review.
