Great new additions to the If you were me and lived in... series

Carol P. Roman has taken her If you were in me and lived in… back in time! Four new book which introduce children to life in four very important periods in world history.

First, Elizabethan England. Children are taken back in time to 1578 and the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. The golden age of art and literature. The time of William Shakespeare. Readers are introduced to the different trades people would perform in their villages as well as the different types of houses that people lived in. Foods, entertainment and other important aspects of life in the era. At the end of the book, a glossary of terms as well as a list of very important people of the Elizabethan era are presented.

Second, Ancient Greece. Children are taken back in time thousands of years ago to the birthplace of democracy. Ancient Greeks were identified by the city-state they lived in such as Athens, Sparta and Corinth. Greek mythology is discussed and how the stories played an important role in the Greeks everyday lives. The philosophers are discussed such as Plato and Socrates. The literature of the time: The Iliad and The Odyssey.

Third, Colonial American. Travel back in time again to 1620 and the establishment of a colony in the new world. Readers are introduced to who the colonists were, why they came to the new world and how they got here. Once here, the readers learn about the harsh conditions and basics of life. At the end of the book, notable names such as William Penn, John Smith and many others are listed.

Lastly, Renaissance Italy. Children are taken back in time to 1483 Florence, Italy and the birthplace of the Renaissance. The Renaissance is a reawakening of creativity after the darkness of the Middle Ages. The art, the literature, and entertainment. Children are introduced to the life children would have lived with education and entertainment.

I loved these new additions to the If you were me and lived in… series. Each book is an excellent introduction to different time periods in our history and what life was like then. I highly recommend these books for any school or family library!
