Join Carole P. Roman when she visits the stunning and diverse land of Brazil in the newest book of her informative series. Learn about the varied customs and cultures. Travel to South America to discover what you would eat and do for fun. See the land through the eyes of a youngster like you and understand what life is like in this exciting place. Don't forget to look at the other books in the series so that you can be an armchair world traveler.

We received this book to give an honest review.

In this book we are learning how it is if you lived in Brazil. I have always been interested in the cultural of Brazil it just seem so exotic. We get to learn what you can eat, the fun things to do in Brazil to even games you might play growing up. 
The book is a good read though the only thing that I didn't like was how the pictures just seemed dull. I know that sounds silly but when I think of Brazil I think bright colors that stand out to you. 
K really enjoyed the food that was mentioned and wanted to try the grilled cheese on a stick which doesn't sound very good but hey to each their own. 
I really liked how we got to learn that the capital of Brazil is not Rio de Janeior I always thought it was so that was neat. 
Overall if you enjoy learning about new places then you and your children should totally read this.
