MDDR Presents: A Review of If You Were Me and Lived In Australia by Carole P. Roman

BETHPAGE, N.Y. - Former social studies teacher Carole P. Roman has penned a new addition in her exiting explorations of foreign cultures and customs with "If You Were Me and Lived in ... Australia". In her years as a teacher, parent and grandparent, Roman noticed that there were few, if any, books about other cultures for young children. Roman has remedied the deficit and now introduces the new Australia installment in a series that educates kids, parents and teachers, alike. Roman recognizes that children love to discover the differences and similarities of other people and places in far-off lands. In this series, she describes details that kids can relate to. Tailored to children from 3-to-8-years old, her writing is simple but does not talk down to youngsters. Among the topics that are introduced in this journey to Australia are the unusual indigenous animals, the extraordinary Great Barrier Reef, the currency, the beloved game of cricket and the national holiday, Australia Day, as well as the special nicknames people have for one another and the curious taste sensation, Vegemite. "This series is just enough facts to begin a discussion without overwhelming the child and can be expanded or contracted to fit the age group," Roman explains. "Carole P. Roman has created a marvelous premise for her series of educational children's books: young readers are given the opportunity to realistically envision a foreign country without leaving their homes, libraries, or classrooms....Roman's formula allows for so much lovely variety in each book of this series that it hardly seems like a formula at all...If You Were Me and Lived in ...Kenya is a short, vibrant picture book, brightly illustrated in cartoon style. The text is scant, appropriate, and does not deviate from the central theme." ForeWord Reviews Clarion Review

Our Review

If You Were Me and Lived In Australia by Carole P. Roman
My rating: 5 of 5 Moons

Lily says:

This book is about Australia and all the things to do and see!

Once again the pictures are amazing and my favourite is the one of the coral reefs and the deep blue sea. I also loved the beautiful forest green pages and all of the amazing colours.

My favourite part was when they told you about the foods in Australia. It was my favourite part because the foods are a little weird and funny.

I learned how they have summer in January and how they learn in school about all the different cultures and the people native to Australia have been there for 40 thousand years and Australia was isolated until the 1700's when the Europeans arrived.

I think that lots of people would read this book, its a great story and Carole P. Roman is an awesome and informative writer.

Mom Says:

I really enjoy reading these books with my daughter, Carole P. Roman is a genius when it comes to writing and really knows what children what to know when it comes to the different cultures and countries.

I have always wanted to visit Australia and I feel a little like I have by reading this book with my daughter we loved our little trip and can't wait to read more! Carole's books are amazing!
