About the Book
"If You Were Me and Lived in ...Mexico-A Child's Introduction to Cultures Around the World" is the first entry in an exciting new children's series that focuses on learning and appreciating the many cultures that make up our small planet. Perfect for children from Pre-K to age 8, this book is a groundbreaking new experience in elementary education. Interesting facts and colorful illustrations help children realize that although the world is large, people all over the globe are basically the same.

About the Author

Awarding winning author and former social studies teacher, Carole P. Roman has combined her love of teaching with a fun new way to learn about people and different cultures around the world. Her debut book, "Captain No Beard-An Imaginary Tale of a Pirate's Life" was named to Kirkus Reviews' Best of 2012.

My Take on the Book
It appears that this book is one of a series of books which focuses on educating children about different cultures from around the world. It is the hope that children will learn how people around the world are basically the same or have more similarities than differences.

As you read this story with your child, you will notice the author has done an excellent job of communicating and connecting the culture of the specific country/culture (in this case Mexico) with the United States. I believe children will easily transfer the similarities. I imagine this book leading to discussions with your child about similarities and differences not only in Mexico but with other countries.
