MY REVIEW / THOUGHTS:

IF YOU WERE ME AND LIVED IN ITALY - I love these books.  They are so great for little kids.  It's a great way to expose them to new countries, and cultures!  It's fun to learn the words for simple things like Mom, Dad, Grandma, and Grandpa.  You learn about what they are famous for.  It's just a great book to expose little kids to new cultures.

IF YOU WERE ME AND LIVED IN EGYPT - Another book in Roman's series of countries.  Each ones of these books has interesting facts about the country.  Egypt is a transcontinental country, which means is it both in Africa and Egypt.  Just fun facts.  Sweet, short stories for kids.  Full of fun facts!  

BEING A CAPTAIN IS HARD WORK - I love the stories of Captain No Beard.  They always teach a lesson and have little facts in them as well.   They keep kids interested in fun facts about the world, through wonderful illustrations, and adventures.  This particular Captain No Beard teaches about clouds, and what kinds there are, and stubbornness.  Brings kids attention to being willing to listen to others.  Sweet, fun, beautiful book.

CAN A PRINCESS BE A FIREFIGHTER? -  Again Roman teaches a wonderful lesson in this book.  I LOVED this book.  LOVED IT!  This book teaches little girls that they can be anything they want if they just put their minds to it.  I love stories that teach kids that they can dream and set goals and have a good time doing it.   Such a sweet, sweet book.

ROCKET-BYE - This is another fun book.  This is a bed time story that teaches about the stars, and the planets.  What a fun way to teach kids about the universe.   I even learned more about the stars.  It was fun.  I love it when authors bring things to life for kids that are facts they probably wouldn't be interested in any other way, at a young age.
