If you like to learn more about other cultures and countries with your kids, Carole P. Roman books are one of the best sources of information especially for young kids from three to eight. Recently we had an opportunity to review a book If you were me and lived in... Australia, where the author introduces different aspects of living in Australia. Starting from history and geographical location, the story goes further telling readers about biggest cities in the country.
It was interesting to learn about the most popular girls and boys names, where Teddy noted that Sophie is very popular name in Canada too (he already met lots of girls at school with the name Sophie). The book also tells us how children call mom and dad in Australia, a little bit different than in North America. As for food and family activities, it was fabulous to discover vegemite sandwiches, and how daddies prepare roast meat on the barbie for dinner. Kids love playing cricket even in January outside. The most popular attraction in Australia to explore is the Great Barrier, I think it would be nice to visit this largest reef in the world and see the colorful sea world around it. Every country had its own special day like we have Canada Day, Aussies (nick name for Australians) also celebrates Australia Day at the end of January. I am sure it is one of the most wonderful days of the year filled with events, parades and activities.
We were very excited to read this book, especially my little one who also received an Australian flag in addition to the publication. While Teddy did not understand years and historical events since he is only four, now he definitely can tell so many interesting facts about Australia and show where it is located on a globe.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
