If You Were Me and Lived in...does for history what her other award-winning series did for culture. So get on-board this time-travel machine and discover the world through the eyes of a young person just like you.
My take on this book:
Reading a book written by Carol P. Roman always provides an educational experience presented in a fun and easy to understand way. With this book it's no different and readers will learn when Englanders traveled to the New World. More than that though we learn about various characters that lived during that time, and there is even a handy section that allows the reader to learn about six people who lived during colonial times. Along with that is a glossary of words used and their definitions for greater understanding. The illustrations really bring the prose to life allowing me to further visualize the time period. Youngsters are going to learn history in a fun way but older readers just might learn something as well.
