Editorial Reviews


"The book does a great job of teaching kids about the country in a way that kids understand and will love. There's also a pronunciation guide at the end of the book that helps kids learn how to pronounce words." - Little Blog in the Country
"This is an essential entry in the series, and a valuable window into China for young readers...Carole P. Roman's formula for explaining the basics of other cultures around the world proves successful once again, as she focuses on the populous and still somewhat mysterious country of China in her picture book...The book's range of information, the simplicity and appeal of its presentation, and Roman's unique ability to help small children imagine life in a different part of the world combine to make If You Were Me and Lived In...China an essential entry in the series, and a valuable window into a major culture." - Peter Dabbene, Foreword Review

"Young readers can use the picture book to travel to China and learn about everyday life and culture from the point of view of a child who lives there...This winning overview of Chinese life offers kids a good introduction to life in another country." - Kirkus Review
"The IF YOU WERE ME AND LIVED IN... picture book series is a great choice for any child that has ever wondered what it is like to live in another country. In award-winning author Carole P. Roman's latest installment, young readers get to experience the hustle and bustle and beauty of China, or, as it is officially named, the People's Republic of China." - Kelsea Wierenga,  The Children's Book Review
""If you were me and lived in China, your home would be in East Asia." This is the opening line of this book and I loved how inviting it is. What an ingenious way to teach children about China. I found myself learning new things I didn't know about China (names, food, history, holidays) and the illustrations transported me there. My favorite part was the pronunciation guide at the back of the book." - N. N. Light,, blog
"This is such an amazing way to explore with your children. Your child will learn about the culture and the weather. They'll learn a few words of the language and see how very similar people all over the world are. It broadens their thinking in a very natural way.  Books that teach and are fun make children want to learn more. I love this series." - Melanie Adkins, Have You Heard Book Reviews
"I really like this, If You Were Me and Lived in..., series. I think it is the most created line of books that were ever created for children. To have them be able to "travel" from country to country through a book is an awesome way for them to learn. These books are packed with a lot of information." -, blog
""If You Were Me and Lived in...China" by Carole P. Roman is a great book that will teach you some much in a very easy and fun way. I love this book and each and every one in this series. I recommend it as a kids travel guide, or to take it with you to Xue Xia (school), so many kids will learn more about other cultures." - Paola Belloso for Reader Views, Book by Book Publicity
"Readers can go to China and never leave their home. ... If you visited The Great Wall of China you could be walking along it for 5500 miles. There is plenty here on these pages for readers to learn about the culture and people of China." - Kristi Bernard,, blog
"I love to learn about China it is one of those places in the world that you could see yourself either living there or visiting. ... With this story we are taken into how it would be if you lived in China, just like all the other books in this amazing series of cultural this author did not disappoint. ... The pictures are done wonderfully and go perfect with what is being said on each page. I recommend this book to not only have in home but to also have in schools." Autumn, K&A's Children's Book Reviews, blog
"Once again Carol gives us a great book that demystifies a culture most kids don't know much about, and introduces them to common words and phrases.Another winner, and a great addition to your home resource library, before Chinese new year rolls around again!" - Nicole Henke, Bless Their Hearts Mom, blog
"These are the perfect books to read before visiting a foreign country. With the multiple illustrations, every reader would know more how to dress and act when visiting the places of which many of us are ignorant. Carole P. Roman is a former social studies teacher who now utilizes her years of experience by creating this excellent series. Each page perfectly coordinates words with the colorful illustrations for a better understanding of each concept." - Teri Davis,
My 9 yr old's thoughts:
"I like them because you can learn about different countries and their past.  Like for example:  China."- Westword Blog
