Russia has joyful holidays with dancing, singing, food, and fireworks. They celebrate with Grandfather Frost and have presents under the tree.
In the back of the book there are two pages of English words and definitions that you would need to know in Russia.
Indian money is called the rupee and their movie industry is called Bollywood (kind of like Hollywood). Eating in India involves interesting spices such as cumin, curry, cinnamon, and chilies. Some people in India do not eat beef or pork.
They have their own holidays, too. One is Holi which is a two-day celebration of good overcoming evil. And just like other children all over the world, children in India love to play and they go to school.
At the end of the book there is a page of words with definitions that are good to know about India.
To date, Carole P. Roman has written and printed the following If You Were Me and Lived in…… at least nine books. Chat With Vera has reviewed most of these. I invite you to read my reviews and see if these might be good books to add to the library of that special child of yours. They are especially nice to have on hand in the homeschool library or school classroom library.
