Review: If You Were Me and Lived In...India: A Child's Introduction to Cultures Around the World by Carole P. Roman

Let's travel to India! Land of bright colors and delicious spices, If You Were Me and Lived in...India, takes young readers on a road trip to learn about this interesting place. Children will learn how to say mommy and daddy, what type of currency is used, games that youngsters play and a lot of interesting facts about the beautiful land of India. If You Were Me and Lived in...India adds this ethnically diverse country to the growing, award winning series that is out to cover the entire globe, teaching children about culture and customs all over the world. The ForeWord Review, Clarion Review gave "If You Were Me and Lived in...Kenya" a coveted five star ranking. The first book in the series, If You Were Me and Lived in...Mexico" received the Pinnacle Award for Best in Children's Nonfiction 2012.

We received this book to give an honest review.

Love this series, and it is great for K to learn about new country and what they have in their country that is the same as ours. Only they call things differently than we do. With this story even though I really enjoyed it some of the words were hard to pronounce thank goodness there was a guide in the back to help out a bit. 
I love the way the food is portrayed in India, I have never tried it but when reading it I want to try the food to see if it is as spicy and filled with spices as written.

I recommend this book to anyone who wants a fun learning experiences with learning about another country. It isn't filled it boring facts, it is fun facts with pictures that makes it awesome.
