About the Book
It’s never too early to start teaching children about the world around them. In If You Were Me and Lived in…Greece , early learners get a taste of what their life would be like if they lived in Greece while being introduced to the birthplace of democracy. This book is the latest installment of the educational series about the cultures of the world that speaks to young children about the topics that interest them, such as the foods people eat, the names of boys and girls, and the activities that children their age living in a foreign land are likely to engage in. This exciting visit to Greece also introduces the important concept of democracy to children and highlights some of the other cultural contributions that Greece has made to Western civilization. Basic information is offered in a playful way that won’t overwhelm children.
My Take on the Book
Greece is a country I hope to visit one day. I was eager to read this nonfiction children's book by Carole P. Roman.
Carole has written an informative story about Greece for children. Your child will easily understand the text. She makes it interesting by inserting Greek words and how to pronounce them. One example of words that your child can directly relate to are the Greek words for grandmother and grandfather, which are "Papou" and "Yaya".
The accompanying illustrations assist in understanding the text.
