Book Review: If You Were Me and Lived in...Norway
By Carole P. Roman
Self Published, 2013
English, 32 pages
Join Carole P. Roman on a trip to the Northern Hemisphere and learn about Norway- The Land Of the Midnight Sun. In this exciting series, children are able to read about the many things we share in this great, big world of ours. If You Were Me and Lived in...Norway describes many things that make that country unique and fun. Readers will be able to learn about the capital, common names, a beloved holiday, as well as favorite food and other fun facts. This book is an excellent introduction for those beginners who want to learn about the many thrilling places and great people who share our planet.
This is one of many books in this series which introduces kids to other countries and cultures. I got it because my older son (7) is very interested in geography and learning about what kids do in other parts of the world. He really enjoyed this book. It was really fun to listen to him try to sound out the Norwegian words.
The pictures are cute and it was very easy for him to read by himself. (With a little help on the Norwegian words.) He has started calling his dad Pappa and he was thrilled when I served him waffles with yogurt (there is a page about vaflers with krem) and really wants to go to the ice hotel in the winter (not gonna happen!).
I'm very excited about the other books in this series and using them to further introduce cultures and countries to him.
I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. No additional compensation has been received and I was not required to write a positive review.
