#Review and #Giveaway: If You Were Me and Lived In ...China by Carole P. Roman #kidsbooks #Multicultural
Carole P. Roman's award winning series has traveling again and this time it's to East Asia to visit the People's Republic of China. In this book, younger readers can learn about the wide variety of climate when they read about China's vast size. They will begin their journey in China's ancient capital, Beijing, where they will discover the Imperial Palace of the Forbidden City. Different regions of cuisine are discussed, highlighting the variety of styles and spices of food. Currency, sports, exciting tourist attractions, and a lovely description of the New Year Festivities are included in this introduction the beautiful land of China. Embraced by educators, parents, and children, the series gently and respectfully introduces the subjects of cultures and customs around the world.
I have loved this series from this author since her first book, "If You Were Me and Lived In...Mexico.
Each one seems to get better and better. This book is of an exception. It is by far one of the best I have seen in the series.
The words this time are very difficult to pronounce but she has not only the glossary in the back but the pronunciation right in the text. Her winning format is consistent as with the other books where kids learn about how to say Mom and Dad and learn about what to call school.
I love the vibrant colors which are synonymous with China. The drawings invite the reader right in to what China is all about and to me that too is a win.
I highly recommend this book and the entire series. 5 stars by far!
