Award winning and best selling author Carole P. Roman travels to beautiful Portugal. This pro active book invites children to think about Portugal's many wonders from the sunny Azores to the wide variety of food. Roman's If You Were Me books have a simple, winning formula: portray children from other countries and explain how familiar items and customs are the same, and how they differ, in the country being discussed... The appeal of Roman's If You Were Me series is that this information is not offered in the bland style of an encyclopedia entry, but rather as part of a tour of real life in India...It's this organic conversational tone that keeps the book interesting and inspires kids' own curiosity for other cultures." Peter Dabbene The Foreword Review Join Carole P. Roman as she takes you to explore the friendly country of Portugal!
We received this book to give an honest review.
We love reading about new countries. And Portugal was an interesting country to read about. We learn what people eat, what type of currency they use to buy things. What you would call your mother and father and so much more. These books "If you were me and lived in..." are great to not only have in home but to have in the classrooms as well. Now some words were hard to pronounce so thank goodness that there was a pronunciation guide in the back to help us out. It was a bit funny to hear K sound out some of the words that they say in Portugal.
If you want to learn about this country from a child's point of view of if you were them and lived there than this is a good book to read.
