If You Were Me And Lived In Germany is a guide of what it would be like if you lived in Germany! You would learn that Germany is a member of the European Union or EU and that Germany has sixteen states within it's borders. As you learn more about this Country and all the things you could do for fun and what food you might eat, you would walk away with more knowledge about Germany than most people have of it!! This book has to be my absolute favorite book in this series due to the simple fact that my best friend is a German!! This book did a awesome job of teaching kids what Germany is like without bringing up the horrible past and plus the pictures made this book even more appealing to everyone who reads it! I so wished I had this book when I had to do a report on Germany in the 5th grade, this is truly a book that deserves to be in schools! Thank You to Carole P. Roman for finally having this book in this series of a Country I so want to visit one day!! I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from the Author!

If You Were Me and Lived in...Germany: A Child's Introduction to Culture Around the World by Carole P. Roman, illustrated by Kelsea Wienrenga is the newest book in Roman's illustrated culture series. This edition on Germany is especially of interest as my teenager is in her fourth year of German Language in school. The art contained in this newest book about Germany is a combination of mixed media- colorful cartoons superimposed with beautiful, full color, picturesque photography. Without a doubt, each book in the "A Child's Introduction to Cultures Around The World" series offers the reader new surprises each time. When reading about Germany, the photograph of the castle on the hill in Fussen jumps out at the reader, against the backdrop against a cloudy blue sky and mountains in the distance. Other authentic details and textures add appeal and beauty to the simplistic cartoon scenes. The back contains a glossary of German words. The cartoon tour guides will certainly capture the attention of all young readers as well as parents and educators. I believe the "Carlesque" styled mixed media illustrations with the simple line cartoons in her books 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 sets her books apart from cartoon only illustrations. The consistency of these geography books makes this series perfect for the school setting. An educator can count on the fact that students will be introduced to the basics. There is enough detail to make this series appropriate for middle school and even high school students as well. It would be great to see this series used as part of a school geography or social studies curriculum. It is clear that each book, though simple in design, presents a wealth of information and research.
