I am going to do this review a little different because there are a lot of books in this series that the Author sent to me.  They are cute books about different countries and cultures, but I will probably just do a quick blip about it and put the pictures up of the covers!  These are fun books for kids :).

These books are so fantastic for kids.  I really wish my kids were still little, but I read them to my 10 yr old and he really enjoyed them as well.  Each book tells you about where you can find each place.  It tells about what kind of food they eat, what sports they like.  It is fun to see the similarities in so many different cultures.  AND the differences.  What a great idea to write these books.  Each book tells about an important day to each place, and what they would use for money.  It's very insightful, for a children's book.  

The illustrations are wonderful in the books.  They are a quick and easy way to share with your children the difference and beauty of each culture in our world.  Such a beautiful display of culture.  

I enjoyed each book.  They each had fun facts, and were interesting to read.  If you have kids with friends from other countries this would be a fabulous way to introduce them to their culture.  For me, I just wanted my son to see all the amazing people, and cultures that there are in our fabulous world.  Each one is beautiful, and wonderful.  I love this world we live in, and all the different people and cultures that add to that beauty.  

Such a great idea!  

Thanks to Carole P. Roman for your insight on each of these wonderful parts of our world.

About the Author:
Carole P. Roman

pic and bio taken from

Named to Kirkus Reviews' Best of 2012 for her first book, award winning author Carole P. Roman started writing as a dare from one of her sons. Using an imaginary game she played with her grandson as a base, Captain No Beard was born. It has followed with four more books to the series.
Motivated by her love of yoga, Roman has written a book that not only teaches four poses, but shows how easy and accessible yoga can be.
She has just finished the first of six books in a groundbreaking new nonfiction series about culture around the world. "If You Were Me and Lived in..." combines her teaching past with her love of exploration and interest in the world around us.

Writing for children has opened up a whole second act for her. While she is still working in her family business, this has enabled her to share her sense of humor as well as love for history and culture with the audience she adores. Roman lives on Long Island with her husband and near her children.
