Book Review - If you were me and lived in Kenya
About the Book
Let's travel to Kenya! Number five in this exciting series travels to Africa to learn about the thrilling country of Kenya. This extraordinary book "If You Were Me and Lived in...Kenya- A Child's Introduction to Cultures Around the World" explores life for children on a new continent. The book touches on many familiar topics such as names, money, games,and food as well the sites and sounds that come with living in Africa. Embraced by educators, parents, and children, the series gently and respectfully introduces the subjects of cultures and customs around the world.
About the Author
Award winning author and former social studies teacher, Carole P. Roman is delighted to add Kenya to her wonderful series, "If You Were me and Lived in..." Her other series Captain No Beard has won numerous awards and has been recognized by both parents and teachers alike as a successful way to introduce lessons on tolerance, sharing, bullying, and responsibility. She lives on Long Island with her husband and very near her children and grandchildren who fill her life with joy.
My Take on the Book
This is another great book in Ms. Roman's series. What I love about this and all of the books in the series is that it challenges all children to grow and learn about others and to think of themselves as a part of a larger world and society. In this book you get to know a lot more about Kenya and what it would be like if you lived there. Thus children reading this get acculturated to the language, culture and customs that they would experience if they were there. Another great book that will open a child's eyes to the world around them!
