If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? In her latest book, award-winning author Carole P. Roman focuses on one of the oldest nations on Earth, the cradle of civilization, Egypt.
If You were Me and Lived In … Egypt is the latest and greatest book in Roman’s very informative series that introduces readers to different countries by presenting interesting cultural facts in a fun-to-learn way. The pages are filled with matter-of-fact tidbits that really give a kid-friendly view on what it would be like to live in or travel to Egypt. Beginning with geography and then moving on to social studies, elementary-aged students are given a tour of famous places, people, food, and a teensy bit of history about the ancient kings and queens. There is even a pronunciation guide that heightens the entire learning experience.
Kelsea Wierenga’s multi-media illustrations show the deep, rich colors of the land and people. The images invite readers to expand their exploration of the text. This installment of the highly acclaimed travel series will be sure to intrigue young readers.
Ultimately, this is an engaging picture book that provides a solid first-look into a fascinating country that is steeped in culture. Now, the next question for young and inquisitive readers will be, which If You Were Me and Lived In … book will you read next?
