We were recently sent a box of books from Carole P Roman. If you haven't checked her books out you really need too. Little J loves these!
Award winning author Carole P. Roman is a former teacher turned businesswoman. She has successfully run a family business with her husband. Her most favorite job is being grandmother to her many grandchildren. She currently lives on Long Island with her husband.
We have reviewed them before here and loved them. This time we were sent books about Russia, Australia, and Portugal. Little J is starting to read but these are a little above his level so I had to read them too him, because I enjoy them too.
The books are written as an introduction to culture from different countries across the world. The first page of the book shows a map of the country and indicates where the capital is. Then it shows roughly where the country is on the globe. The book tells a few facts about the country including the name of the capital and it's size in the world (for example Moscow is the fifth largest city in the world). It talks about the popular names from the country and the names of 'Mom' and 'Dad' in the native language. Common food and clothing (including the names in the native language) are discussed. Famous tourist places and sports, myths, and legends.
I like the fact that there is a lot of information given in quite a simple way. With lots of topics covered it gives a lot of scope for further study. I know we have jumped onto YouTube many times to learn more about something in them. Little J loved having his globe with him so that he could search for the new country on it after we read the book!
These books are available on Amazon for $.99 cents for the kindle version or $8.99 for the brightly colored softback version I received.
