Go On Our Adventure with Carole P. Roman
Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor compensated in any other way.
We have been blessed before to review Carole P. Roman and so I was excited to get to adventure again with the Carole P. Roman’s assorted series. We received 4 adventure paperback books, “If You Were Me and Lived in the Mayan Empire”, “If You Were Me and Lived in Viking Europe”, “If You Were Me and Lived in Colonial America” and “Fribbet the Frog and the Tadpoles” from the Captain No Beard series.
First off, I want to say, we LOVE Carole P. Roman and her books! She is a wonderful children’s book author and I enjoy reading her books aloud to my kids! Each of my kids enjoyed these books and loved looking at the high quality pictures in each one by themselves.
Adventure is right around the next page…
We actually used the “If You Were Me” books as part of Jake’s history. The first one we read was “If You Were Me and Lived in Viking Europe”.
This was the first of this series I had read and it was SO good! It really takes you into the lives of a child during this time period and you learn about food, family, friends, pastimes and more. We learned so many things about Vikings that we previously did not know.
We read “If You Were Me and Lived in Colonial America”. I personally loved this one because I just love this time period. I think this style of book really encourages kids to learn without even realizing it because it does it from a child’s perspective.. Children were treated so much differently during this time period. Everyone was seen as a necessary part of the family!
We actually read If You Were Me and Lived in the Mayan Empire while we were studying this area in Geography. My son thought it was so weird how they made their baby’s eyes cross and elongated their foreheads because they thought it was beautiful.
My little ones liked this book Fribbet the Frog and the Tadpoles best of all! It was a super cute story that really taught them about caring for younger siblings! As with all her books its FULL of beautiful, color paintings.
These are the perfect books to use not only in your homeschooling but also just to read for fun to your kids! They are NOT twaddle or boring readers and instead are full of adventure which all ages can enjoy and appreciate.
If you haven’t read Carole P. Roman before you really should check her out! You can read my other reviews of her books HERE. Last year I reviewed her Captain No Beard series. She has a large selection of children’s books that entertain and teach at the same time! She’s really one of my favorite children’s authors💞
