"If You Were Me and Lived in...France-A Child's Introduction to Culture Around the World" is the second book in Carole P. Roman's remarkable series about countries all over the globe. With each book covering a different nation, Roman opens up a world of wonder while highlighting the fact that underneath it all we are far more alike than we might have imagined. Focusing on what life would be like from a child's viewpoint, she examines the diversity of the people who make up our planet.

We received this book to give an honest review.

This is the second book we have read in this series, and I really enjoy it. You get to learn about France in a way that makes it fun to learn and not boring. I enjoyed how at the end of the book it shows you some of the words and how to pronounce them. 

K enjoyed learning about the Eiffel tower that was in the book and informed me it looks like an A. 
This story is written in a way that it captures the children into learning about a new place and their culture. 

The only problem I had and it isn't anything major is when you open the book you get a picture of France and it shows you were Paris is. It was hard to read the word Paris in black letters on the blue background.
