What to expect: South Korea, Places, Korean words, Culture
Reading is a great way to escape to new and foreign places and allows every person to travel and experience different cultures. Award-winning author Carole P. Roman provides this opportunity to young readers with her smart nonfiction series “A Child’s Introduction to Cultures Around the World.” Together, in this latest offering, parents and children can discover South Korea.
Children learn best when they are safe and having fun, like all of the books in this series, If You Were Me and Lived in … South Korea clearly aims to appeal to children by addressing subjects that are important and relatable to them. Roman cleverly pitches topics such as, what their names may be if they were indeed from South Korea; the kind of money one would use if they wanted to buy a toy; and the names given to moms (Omma) and dads (Appa). Wrapped up in all of the kid-centric topics, a little history is introduced as readers learn a bit about Seoul—the country’s capital city—and how people have lived there for over two thousand years.
From places to visit, food to eat, and special holidays celebrated, this book is a great entry level learning experience for preschool aged children through elementary grades. If You Were Me and Lived in … South Korea would make a nice aid for children participating in any special international days or cultural projects.
