My kids are getting more and more interested in the world around them. We recently sponsored a little boy from Mexico and have been exchanging letters with him and learning about his life. The more this little boy shares with my kids, the more they want to learn. They want to know things like his favourite food and what sports he plays.
“If You Were Me And Lived In Mexico” by Carole P Roman takes you and your child on an exploration of Mexico.
The author takes facts about Mexico and presents them in a kid friendly way. As a parent I love that the author takes the time to show how the words are pronounced. When I am reading out loud to the kids I hate when I don’t know if I’m saying something right.
The illustrations that accompany each fact help my kids visualize what we are talking about. The picture of the Mayan temple lead to a discussion on how high it must be and why it has so many steps. It really captured their interest and they want to research it more when we get to a computer.
“If You Were Me And Lived In Mexico” helps my children learn more about the lives of children in Mexico. We learned about favourite foods, money and even what they call Mom and Dad. The book helped my children learn that even though the world is a large place we are all basically the same.
