Review: If you were me and lived in Hungary by Carole P. Roman


23587934
Welcome to Hungary! Join Carole P. Roman and learn about this beautiful country in Central Europe. Packed with colorful illustrations, children will learn about the sights, currency, food, and even a few Hungarian words. This critically acclaimed series has been embraced by children, parents, and educators. Deceptively simple, it is jam packed with a vast array of information to ignite any child's interest in the world around them. If You Were Me and Lived in...India- Five Stars ForeWord Review "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 "In Roman's latest installment of her cultural series, she transports readers to India, where she takes them on a whirlwind, detailed tour. Geared towards young readers, the story also works as a primer for readers of all ages...A colorful, engaging holidays and Roman's stories help them realize how much we have in common." Kirkus Reviews


We received this book to give an honest review.
K and I both learned a lot with this book of Hungary. There were some amazing facts that neither of us knew. Especially about the Rubik cube. We learn what food is popular there, maybe a name your mother and father would name you, what you would call your parents along with what the tradition is there.
The only thing I would like to see in more books about the countries is what the currency looks like, it always brought up such as if you were to buy this toy you would use this kind of money. It would be pretty neat to show my son what the money looks like as we live in the US and we don't get to see other countries currency.
Overall great book to learn about a different country and is great for teachers to use in their classrooms.
