If you were me and lived in...Italy by Carole P. Roman
Each book gives children a look into what it might be like to live in another country. The author goes through examples of what parents in Italy might name their children, or what children might call their parents. It also explains what Italian money would be called and different foods you might like to eat. It also gives a brief introduction to the history of Italy, when it was founded, and what the people who lived there were called. What I also loved about this book was the way the author helps children sound out the different words. For any Italian words, they are in a parenthesis with the correct pronunciation. The back of the book also includes three pages of a Pronunciation Guide.
Overall, I loved this book! I think it would be an excellent resource to use with young children in school or homeschooling. I have been reading them with my 4 year old and she absolutely loves it. There are just the right amount of words on the pages to keep her interest, and the book itself is not super long at 25 pages in length. I rate this book as 5 stars!
I received this book for free in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
