If You Were Me and Lived In... is an educational series meant to introduce and expose children to different cultures. This book, the 6th in the series, taught us about Norway, a country my son and I knew little about, so we enjoyed reading it and realizing how similar Norway is to Northern Canada.
We learned so many interesting facts that caught my son's attention. Some of them were that for parts of the year the sun never sets and shines all day and all night in Norway. Imagine that! Author Carole P. Roman covers simple facts that appeal to children such as the food they eat, what children do for playtime and introduces us to words used in Norway and includes a pronunciation list in the back of the book.
The illustrations are simple but colorful. Overall, this was a fun book to read and we think young children will enjoy learning about Norway. It would be a useful resource when teaching young children about different cultures. Because we have friends all over the world, we love learning about different cultures and we think this series is a good one.
Note: This book is rated C = clean read.
