My thoughts: It seems as though Carole P. Roman just gets better and better at writing the story-facts for the countries visited in the If You Were Me and Lived In.... series. To date the book on Italy was my "most favorite" with its illustrations and facts. I think, though, that Egypt might even top Italy as far as Roman's publications are concern.
I've never been to Egypt and most likely will never go. I have always viewed the history of Egypt with awe and fascination. In Roman's little fact filled book I learned....
- Egypt is one of the oldest nations on earth and is called the cradle of civilization.
- It straddles two continents - Africa and Asia.
- It's capital is Cairo, and Cairo is the largest city in the Middle-East.
- They play a board game called Senet which was played by King Tutankhamun (or King Tut). His game board was made from precious woods and gems.
- They have a spring festival during which they dye and decorate eggs. The holiday marks the beginning of spring.
Another good Introduction to Cultures by Ms. Roman.
