Carole P. Roman's award winning series has traveling again and this time it's to East Asia to visit the People's Republic of China.... In this book, younger readers can learn about the wide variety of climate when they read about China's vast size. They will begin their journey in China's ancient capital, Beijing, where they will discover the Imperial Palace of the Forbidden City. Different regions of cuisine are discussed, highlighting the variety of styles and spices of food. Currency, sports, exciting tourist attractions, and a lovely description of the New Year Festivities are included in this introduction the beautiful land of China. Embraced by educators, parents, and children, the series gently and respectfully introduces the subjects of cultures and customs around the world. On "If You Were Me and Lived in...South Korea": "Roman has proven her skill at writing children's books with her Captain No Beard series, as well as with the other volumes in her cultural series. If you were me and lived in ...South Korea uses a technique of speaking directly to the child reading or listening, similar to Laura Numeroff's If You Give a...series. This strategy is well suited to a book about foreign cultures as it gives little imaginations a boost by helping children envision themselves growing up with customs and traditions different from the ones they're familiar with..." Peter Dabbene ForeWord Reviews Clarion Review On "If You Were Me and Lived in...France": "It is the simplistic and positive way that Roman,a former social studies teacher, delivers the text, that makes this series appealing-the books are short and to the point and just what you want when you're introducing geography and culture to the youngest reading set." Bianca Schulz-The Children's Book review. "It is vital vital that we continue to embrace culture and learn about the history of our world neighbors. Carole P. Roman has developed a series of cultural books designed to help parents and educator take the first steps in engaging our children in a fun way of embracing other cultures." Storytellers Campfire.

An interactive, educational project and personalized keepsake rolled into one, ?Where Do You Live, Exactly?? uses the principle of... Russian nesting dolls to reduce the size of the universe one page at a time. At the beginning of the story, when Tommy Turtle asks the child where he lives, the child responds, ?I live in the Universe?. Tommy Turtle replies, ?But the universe is very big! Where do you live, exactly?? Each additional response becomes more precise until the book ends in the child?s own bedroom. Through the use of repetition and personalization, the child has fun ?filling in the blanks? and gluing-in or coloring pictures to put themselves at ?the center of the story?, while at the same time, learning the basic design of the universe and personal address information. Depending upon the child?s age and literacy level, the personalized portions of the story can be completed entirely by an adult; by an adult and child working together; or by the child working independently. When the child outgrows the book, tuck it away with childhood memorabilia to preserve a precious sample of their handwriting and drawings. Read More
