If You Were Me And Lived In Norway is the story of what life is really like in Norway! As we venture into the Land Of The Midnight Sun known as Norway, we learn what are names are and what we use as money. You learn all the outdoor activities there are even when it's freezing cold to what kind of food you might enjoy eating. You might also learn new customs while exploring the great outdoors at night under a colorful nighttime sky! I'm not big on visiting cold places but this book makes it seem like it might be fun to visit once just to explore everything that Norway has to offer! I really liked the illustrations of the Northern Lights that are almost spot on! Once again, this is a great series with a awesome concept to get kids learning more about this world we live in! Thank You to Carole P. Roman for writing a book that is perfect in this series that you have created! This book came from my own personal Library!

First of all I would like to thank the author and Bostick Communications for allowing me to read and review this book. I have given this book 5 stars out of five and they are well worth this in fact I would give them more than this if I could. They are well written and illustrated. First of all i'd like to thank the Author and Bostick Communications for allowing me to review these books. The Information in these books is presented as a a story which gives the reader information about the countries customs and cultures.     The stories will keep a child engaged and make them want to learn about different countries and cultures. These books along with the others in the series will be a useful part of a Geography Curriculum wether it be school or home school based as they will be a good way to introduce children to countries and their cultures/customs. I will recommend these books to others as well as buying them as gifts for other children, and I will use them as part of my Homeschooling Geography Curriculum.

  The land of the midnight sun. The Kirkenes Snow hotel. Syttend Mai Day.  There is so much more included in this terrific book for young ones.      This is another beautiful book to use as a teaching tool. The pronunciation page is awesome! Helping young ones to learn more about their world and the people in it. Carole P. Roman is a master at producing fun and educational materials.      I found no issues.     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because our young ones can't have enough good material in their library.   ~Copy of book provided by author in exchange for a fair review~

This is the second book that I have been privileged to review by Ms. Roman. I really like how fun and exciting that she has made learning about other countries! My oldest enjoys reading books like these and we always spend time talking about the country, trying to pronounce the words that are included in the book, and we always do more research about each country. This book is perfect for libraries, a child's own library, and a Social Studies teacher's library. The writing is done in a way that children from ages Pre-K and up can understand. Ms. Roman does a terrific job in making learning about other cultures and countries fun! Thank you to the author for providing me with a complimentary copy of the book for my honest review.

If You Were Me and Lived In... Norway... A Child's Introduction to Cultures Around The World By Carole P. Roman is a new picture book introducing young readers to a new country. This book is the newest edition in a series of picture books focusing on a particular country. This book follows a similar format as the first books in the series about Mexico, South Korea, and France. Yet in this newest edition, the author makes greater use of a variety of textures and mixed media in producing the illustrations. The stone texture, sky image and grass textures add instant appeal to an outdoor illustration. The Northern Lights backdrop against the illustration of a snow scene makes for a beautiful and unexpected presentation. The beautiful sunset and authentic brick texture adds an authentic appeal and beauty to a simplistic scene. I would like to see this trend continued to a greater degree in future books. I am happy to see the direction that Roman is taking with the illustrations in her geography picture books. I believe the "Carlesque" styled mixed media illustrations in her newest book on Norway are an unexpected treat. Mixed media illustrations are very popular and appealing for young readers as evidenced by the popularity of Eric Carle's kids' books. By combining geography with mixed media- I believe that Roman will generate even greater interest and attention for her educational series. This story would also be a good choice for a family that is interested in their Norwegian ancestry, a family vacation or even appropriate for pre school children as part of a social studies lesson. This consistency of these geography books makes this series perfect for the school setting. An educator can count on the fact that young children will be introduced to the basics. The predictability of the book's format will also appeal to younger readers who are familiar with the series. In this addition to the series, the child will learn about the geographical location of Norway and will be introduced to its climate, tourist attractions- and the impressive Kirkenes Snow Hotel, local foods, winter sports and other social norms. Full color, simply drawn cartoon drawings with the unique texture accents compliment the text. The pronunciations at the end of the book introduces the child to the native language but it would be better to have the equivalent English words listed as well and definitions to reinforce the material learned in the story. At some point in the future, I would like to see Roman combine all the editions of this series into one larger encyclopedia type of volume in order to create one single comprehensive text. I would also like to see the illustrations revamped and updated in order to incorporate more of the mixed media textures as well. I believe that her loyal readers would be interested in having all these editions in one book. To do this would be a wonderful educational and entertaining resource. This would also make the book more accessible and convenient to educators and schools in the public and private sectors as well as home schoolers. As a blogger I received this book for the purpose of writing this review.

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite Children, are you ready to take a trip with me to discover Norway and learn more about the Norwegian culture and way of life? Let's get started with the help of If You Were Me and Lived in... Norway: A Child’s Introduction to Cultures Around the World by Carole P. Roman. Norway is known as the Land of the Midnight Sun because during parts of the year, the sun never sets and shines all day and all night. The author educates children about Norway, its people, language, culture, food, sights, and sounds through this book. The book also encourages children to discover new lands and helps them develop an interest in traveling to distant lands. The book is informative and the use of colorful illustrations makes it vivid and easy to connect with. It is a good way to introduce children to new places and what makes these places different from the country where they are living. The author does this in a fun and interactive manner which will appeal to young readers. The pronunciation guide at the end of the book is useful when it comes to knowing exactly how the words are pronounced. I like the author’s idea of bringing out a series like this. What an excellent way to introduce children to new lands and diverse cultures! For all those who love traveling, this series has a lot to offer and makes it easy for parents, teachers, and educators to teach children about other countries in an entertaining way.
