Book Review - If You Were Me and Lived in....the Mayan Empire
About the Book
Join Carole P. Roman and travel through time to visit the most interesting civilizations throughout history in the first four books of her new series.

If You Were Me and Lived in...does for history what her other award-winning series did for culture. So get on-board this time-travel machine and discover the world through the eyes of a young person just like you.
My Take on the Book
I have visited some of the Mayan ruins in the past and learned some about the civilization then, but this book gives you an even greater insight into the Mayan civilization. I have found this civilization an interesting one over the years, and while brutal in some ways, the book allows you to really explore more of the history, religion, culture, clothing and daily activities as well. On top of this though, the author also shares information on things like employment, city and home environment, famous buildings, food choices, necessary attire, monetary values, education, hobbies, and even important people and what they accomplished.
You can tell that the author has done her research and this is not the first book in which she has provided this amazing information and more.
