About the Books

If You Were Me and Lived in...Peru- A Child's Introduction to Cultures Around the WorldIt’s never too early to start teaching children about the world around them. Embraced by educators, parents, and children, the series gently and respectfully introduces the subjects of time periods, cultures and customs. Parents, grandparents, and teachers alike will love opening their children’s eyes to the world around them in a fun and easy way—and they’ll be happily surprised when they end up learning a few things themselves. It is the simplistic and positive way that award-winning author Carole P. Roman, a former social studies teacher, delivers the text, that makes this series appealing. The books are short and to the point and just what you want when you’re introducing geography and culture to the youngest reading set.
