I received this book from the author for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.
Join Carole P. Roman when she visits the exciting land of Israel in the newest book of her informative series. Learn about the varied customs and cultures. Travel to the Middle East 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.
If You Were Me and Lived in…Israel; A Child’s Introduction to the Culture Around the World focusses on the Israel and their way of life in a unique and colorful way to relate to children.
Just like the other books in her series, Carole informs the readers of how to pronounce popular names, what foods may be preferred, popular sports or activities, and different ways of dress.
She touches on just one of the many holidays (to keep it brief I’m sure) that are celebrated, as well as a few of the religions that are found in Israel. The illustrations are well-done and convey the words written perfectly for the children to understand.
I give it 4 out of 5 books and recommend it to teachers as well as parents of culture-loving children.
