If You're Going To San Francisco

Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair . . .

I knew Baby Puppy was braiding my hair, but the flowers came as a complete shock!  Like it?

Travel down the Nile to discover Egypt's fascinating history. See the land through the eyes of a youngster like you and understand what life is like in this exotic place. Don't forget to look at the other books in the series so that you can be an armchair world traveler.

If you're a regular around here, you know that I am a huge fan of Carole P. Roman's If You Were Me and Lived in series.  Frankly, they are the most entertaining books for introducing younger children to other cultures that I have ever run across.  If You Were Me and Lived in . . . Egypt (CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2016) is no exception.  As always, Roman includes a fascinating mix of history, tradition, and vocabulary.  I learned some things that I didn't know!  If you have a younger child, you should definitely add If You were Me and Lived in . . . Egypt to his or her book collection.

I received a complimentary copy of If You were Me and Lived in . . . Egypt to facilitate my review.  No other compensation was received.  For full disclosure, see the sidebar.
