DESCRIPTION:

Join Carole P. Roman when she visits Poland in the newest book of her informative series. Learn about the varied customs and cultures. Travel to Eastern Europe 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.

MY REVIEW / THOUGHTS:

I love these little books.  Roman's does a great job of educating little ones about different countries and cultures.  I wish I could say they were just for kids, but I learn something new every time I read another one of these books.  

If you have little kids and want to expose them to some culture, and countries, these are some great resources.   In my opinion it's our job to embrace all the different cultures we are surrounded by and teach our children to love everyone.

DESCRIPTION:

Hop in our time travel machine and join Carole P. Roman as she visits a Viking settlement in the year 890 AD. Learn what your name could be and the kind of food you might eat. Read about the different levels of society, how they affect where you would live, and the type of clothing you might wear. Mateya Arkova's beautiful illustrations illustrate what Vikings ate and their children did for fun. If You Were Me and Lived in.. Viking Europe is an exciting trip that shows a colorful culture through the eyes of a child. 

MY REVIEW / THOUGHTS:

I love these books.  I especially loved this one.  Who doesn't love a viking?  This was a fun story about the Vikings, informative, and fun to read.  

I cannot wait to have grand kids and read these stories to them.  It's such a great way to educate them, with out it being "boring".  Although I don't know if the word reading and boring can be used in the same sentence.  

I love how Roman puts a glossary at the end of the books, that allow children to see how they are pronounced.  I just love these books.  They are fun.
