Editorial Reviews


"excellent addition to your history study, to help your student really get a grasp for what it would be like if they actually lived there during this time period.  Great spring boards for additional study as well." - A Year of Jubilee Reviews
"I thought I knew just about everything there was to know about Ancient Greece, but this book has certainly put it in a whole new light for me!" - Elizabeth Eichelberger
"Introducing ancient civilizations to children is no small task, but the book If You Were Me and Lived In... Ancient Greece does so in s fun way that children will love.  The color and tone of the illustrations set the mood for learning what it would be like to be in ancient Greece in this fun and informative book... Pictures are painted with words that describe sounds, smells, and other sensory details, as when the text speaks of "traveling with heavy cheeses or squawking chickens."  Fun and interesting facts are included throughout the book, such as how bread was used instead of a napkin, and then the bread would be fed to the dog - something most any child would think was funny and a great idea to try... If You Were Me and Lived in... Ancient Greece is an entertaining way to educate and learn about the ancient Greek civilizations, great for children in the second grade range, or any other history-loving child." - Beth Vanhouten, Foreword Reviews, 5 Star Review
"IF YOU WERE ME AND LIVED IN ANCIENT GREECE is a child's basic introduction to ancient history, condensing complicated material into fun facts that can be easily digested by youngsters." - IndieReader
"Throughout the book the reader is addressed as the main subject.  Sentences such as 'You would be proud that Greece introduced a system of politics called demokatia' and 'Your home usually had an open-air court-yard where you enjoyed the shade of many olive trees' reels the reader in and helps them to feel very much a part of both the book and the civilization being studied." - angelicscalliwags (blog)
"In If You Were Me and Lived in ... Ancient Greece, Roman helps your child imagine they are a young boy living in Ancient Greece around 350 B.C." - Learning Mama (blog)
"We enjoyed reading this book with my kids more than once. ... This book definitely stirred my kids interest about Ancient Greece..." - Eva, Kid Minds (blog)
"This book was very interesting to me. ... This book taught me a lot about Ancient Greece."- review by Miss E, age 12, 3 giggly girls at home (blog)
"My kindergartner says, "I like in the Ancient Greece book that the father could go and serve people.  The books helped me understand how other people lived." - As We Bloom (blog)

"Carole Roman's series will make everyone enjoy history and this book can be read by older children too. I recommend this series to all parents to have in their personal collection at home."Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite
