Captain and I have collected many books written by Carole P Roman brought to you by  Away We Go Media our most recent are;

If You Me and Lived in Ancient Greece (An Introduction to Civilizations Throughout Time) (Volume 1)

If You Were Me and Lived in Viking Europe

If You Were Me and Lived in... Elizabethan England (An Introduction to Civilizations Throughout Time) (Volume 3)

If You Were Me and Lived in...Colonial America (An Introduction to Civilizations Throughout Time) (Volume 4)

Captain really likes these books. I like them because they are a great starting point when you want to introduce a new period of history. Or when something comes up in conversation, I have been known to say "Go pull out that book on Viking Europe". In fact Captain read the book "If you were me and lived in...Viking Europe" after relistening to on of our audio books on tape about the same time period. He said that the pictures in the book and the details mentioned about life during that time were just what he imagined when he was listening.

He did have his favorites among the four books he received. Mainly to do with the illustrations. His favorite book for pictures was the Elizabethan English one. He loved how 'real life' they looked. He thought the Colonial American pictures were a little more 'cartoony'. The Ancient Greece and Viking Europe he described as 'dreamy' I think because the pictures are lighter in color and a little blurry on the edges, they reminded him of dreams. I do have to say he loved all the books I just found his observations about the different styles of illustrations interesting.

I do love books that make my children say "Mom, did you know!" or "Mom, Guess What!!" this is what these books do in my house.

Captain found it fun to tell me all about where the phrase "Raining cats and dogs" may have come from - if you want to know read the book - If You Were Me and Lived in... Elizabethan England (An Introduction to Civilizations Throughout Time) (Volume 3)  he also was shocked to know that people in the Elizabethan time didn't like chocolate and only used it for medicine. It's funny he was so shocked about this fact because he doesn't really like chocolate himself!

If you want books on your bookcase that your kids will pick up and read then these are great. I think what makes them so appealing is because they are not too big and don't feel like history books in the sense of a school book. This makes them fun and readable.
