[Book Review] If You Were Me And Lived In Ancient Greece @caroleproman #KidLit #ChildrensBooks

If You Were Me and Lived in Ancient Greece by Carole P. Roman

**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**

Genre: Children’s Fiction

Publication Date: March 24, 2016


Join Carole P. Roman and travel through time to visit the most interesting civilizations throughout history in the first four books of her new series. 

Learn what kind of food you might eat in Ancient Greece, the clothes you wore in 15th century Renaissance Italy, what your name could be in Elizabethan England, and what Colonial American children did for fun.

My Thoughts
In this story, Roman takes you on a journey of what it was like to live in Ancient Greece.  You get to learn fun facts like Greek Gods, table manners and culture.

My daughter A has ADD and is homeschooled.  It has been quite the challenge getting her interested in world history and geography.  Like me, she LOVES to read and collect books!  So I was very excited to learn of Roman’s If You Were Me and Lived In..series. It was the perfect way to teach a history lesson without being bombarded with too much information all at once.  Even my 4 year old was able to sit through it!  We really enjoyed the illustrations and the fact that some of the more difficult words included how to pronounce it properly.  

I look forward to reading some of the other books in this series.
