Award winning and best selling author Carole P. Roman travels to beautiful Portugal. This pro active book invites children to think about Portugal's many wonders from the sunny Azores to the wide variety of food. Roman's If You Were Me books have a simple, winning formula: portray children from other countries and explain how familiar items and customs are the same, and how they differ, in the country being discussed... The appeal of Roman's If You Were Me series is that this information is not offered in the bland style of an encyclopedia entry, but rather as part of a tour of real life in India...It's this organic conversational tone that keeps the book interesting and inspires kids' own curiosity for other cultures." Peter Dabbene The Foreword ReviewJoin Carole P. Roman as she takes you to explore the friendly country of Portugal!

As you learn everything there is to learn about Portugal, you will leave will more knowledge than ever just by reading this great book! I know I have said this before but I truly love this series that gives both kids and adults an opportunity to learn more about this world we live in! I never realized until reading this book that Lisbon was the oldest city in Western Europe which is making me want to go learn more about Portugal even as a adult! Thank You to Carole P. Roman for writing yet another fantastic book in a series that I really love! This book came from my own personal Library!
It's off to sunny and lively Portugal! Perhaps we will be in time for Carnevale. We can enjoy food, music, parades and dancing. What fun! Portugal is an old country and there are many things to see and learn there. Are you excited? I am. Ms. Roman taps into the most fun and most interesting things about each country. I know the child in your life will enjoy this series as much as I do. Easy to read, bright lovely illustrations and such fun. Get this series. I found no issues. I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it made me want to visit Portugal. ~Copy of book provided by author in exchange for a fair review~
