MDDR Presents: A Review of If you were me and lived in Russia by Carole P. Roman


Exploring the world has never easier—or more fun!—than with Carole P. Roman’s award-winning If You Were Me and Lived In… children’s series. Continuing its globetrotting tradition, If You Were Me and Lived in…Russia explores the magic and wonder of this captivating country. As children ages three to eight take a leisurely stroll around Russia, they will come across some of the country’s most recognizable sites, including the Kremlin, St. Basil’s Cathedral, and the Red Square. Learn about Russia’s yummy delicacies, like borscht and caviar, before playing popular Russian games like chess and “fipe”—a game children may know better as “tag”! Brimming with these and other fascinating facts, If You Were Me and Lived in…Russia is the perfect way to both entertain and educate your children about the great big world that exists outside their windows. From Russia’s festive New Year’s celebrations to popular Russian names, this charming addition to the If You Were Me and Lived in… family explains everything there is to know about one of the world’s most historic destinations. Carole P. Roman is the award-winning author of the If You Were Me and Lived in… series, which won the Pinnacle Award for Best in Children’s Nonfiction in 2012. She collaborated on this installment in the series with her five-year-old grandson, Alexander. Roman also writes the Captain No Beard series, the first of which was named a Kirkus Best of 2012, received a Star of Remarkable Merit, and won the Pinnacle Award in 2012.

Our Review

If you were me and lived in Russia by Carole P. Roman
My rating: 4 of 5 Moons


Lily says:

This book is about Russia and all the things to do and see!

Once again the pictures are amazing and my favourite picture was the one where they were talking about Moscow.

My favourite part in the book was when they were playing Hide & Seek tag in the park but they called it Fipe.

I learned that they go to a school called shkola and they eat lots of weird food that I can't pronounce and they play hockey but they call it Xoken.

I think that lots of people would read this book, its a great story and Carole P. Roman is an awesome and informative writer.

Mom Says:

This book was really hard to read as the Russian words were really hard to pronounce even with the helping hints...lol...it was still a great book though and we loved learning about Russia.

My daughter and I really love Carole's If you were me books! we are forever going on another adventure to another place and can't wait to read another!

make sure to get these books for your kids today!
