G'Day, Mates! Has your child ever dreamed about visiting Australia? Perhaps this dream could come true in a book! Carole P. Roman's newest non-fiction children's book is all about the wonders of Australia.
In the book, If You Were Me and Lived In...AUSTRALIA, will introduce your child to the continent of wondrous Australia.
Former social studies teacher Carole P. Roman has penned a new addition in her exiting explorations of foreign cultures and customs with “If You Were Me and Lived in … Australia". In her years as a teacher, parent and grandparent, Roman noticed that there were few, if any, books about other cultures for young children. Roman has remedied the deficit and now introduces the new Australia installment in a series that educates kids, parents and teachers, alike.
Roman recognizes that children love to discover the differences and similarities of other people and places in far-off lands. In this series, she describes details that kids can relate to. Tailored to children from 3-to-8-years old, her writing is simple but does not talk down to youngsters.
Among the topics that are introduced in this journey to Australia are the unusual indigenous animals, the extraordinary Great Barrier Reef, the currency, the beloved game of cricket and the national holiday, Australia Day, as well as the special nicknames people have for one another and the curious taste sensation, Vegemite.
“This series is just enough facts to begin a discussion without overwhelming the child and can be expanded or contracted to fit the age group,” Roman explains.
My son and I enjoyed this book so much. I think what really makes Australia come alive for us was the pronunciation guide. It really helped to show us the ropes of Aussie lingo. Even I was a bit surprised by their pronunciation of certain words. We did enjoy our little journey to the world Down Under, learning about names, the capital, games, the Great Barrier Reef, their schools, and their biggest national holiday of the year.
Carole P. Roman not only authored the series, "If You Were Me and Lived In..." but also the series of Capt. NoBeard (my son's favorites right now), Whaley's Adventure, and I Want To Do Yoga, Too. I truly do believe she has found a great calling in authoring children's books.
