Our next trip is to Germany! There are so many things to see and do. Did you know Berlin has been an important city for centuries? We can explore castles and other sights. Also, we can try several different dishes. Festivals and history will keep you moving around. I love this series. It gives children a chance to learn more than the basics taught in school. Well written, this book will capture your child's imagination from page one. This is a series that should be in your child's library. I found no issues. I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because I'm a sucker for a book that teaches. ~Copy of book provided by author and I voluntarily reviewed it.
Reviewed by Rosie Malezer for Readers' Favorite If You Were Me and Lived in...Germany is an educational children’s book, written by Carole P. Roman and illustrated by Kelsea Wierenga. With an ever-changing lifestyle and culture, Germany is a country which comes with a long history, and people who enjoy the simplicity of nature. Once split by a wall, preventing many families from seeing each other for a very long time, Berlin is Germany’s capital, which is now very culturally enriched, valuing the importance of love and family. Basic German language is used and explained throughout the text, using high-quality illustrations and cleverly-utilized linguistics. The historical sites in Germany are numerous, the food and culture are rich, the sports and festivals are vastly popular and the language is fun to learn. A full glossary of terms, used throughout the book, is provided at the end. Carole P. Roman’s beautifully presented book about such a rich culture is a true delight to read. The many educational facts about Germany are accompanied by unique illustrations which fit in with today’s generation, such as taking selfies in front of a majestic old castle. Showcasing an amazing country in such a picturesque and interesting way was quite clever, especially during such political unrest in today’s world. Never before had I seen how Germans live and relate to each other, both amongst friends and family, while within their own country. With so many things to see and enjoy in Germany, I am tempted to pack my bags and pay the country a visit, since it is not so far away from the one in which I live. I was quite pleased with the information the book provided, and recommend If You Were Me and Lived in...Germany to all readers aged 7-12, whether you have German friends, family, are studying the language, or someday hope to travel within Germany’s borders.
