Editorial Reviews


"I think this would be a GREAT book to buy before you take your child on a trip, or in our case, move to a new country!" - Wendi Kitsteiner  "This volume would be a welcome addition to a preschool or kindergarten through third-grade classroom library and would also be valuable for parents who are planning a trip or are relocating to Turkey...this book is just the right length for the very youngest readers, who might be overwhelmed by any more details....Roman's children's geography picture books series is a successful new volume that entertains as much as it instruct." - Foreword Reviews, Clarion Review   "Every book in the If You Were Me and Lived in ... series is like a digestible and kid-friendly piece of Wikipedia, great for kids ages 3-8." - Bianca Schulze, The Children's Book Review   "This non-fiction series awakens an appreciation and hunger for history in children. Not only is the reader entertained and educated, but is provided the opportunity to broaden his/her vocabulary with common words and names from each particular culture. The illustrations are engaging and colorful and give a glimpse into the showcased country." - Cover Lover Book Review, blog   "You will find out where Turkey is on a map, you will also learn what your name might be if you were a boy or girl that lived there. It also teaches you about the places you might visit and the things your might eat. I also love that the back of the book has a Pronunciation page which is so helpful and also fun. The illustrations help give you an idea of how things look in Turkey. My daughter has learned so much from this series of books and I highly recommend them." - Lynda Coker, Between The Pages, blog   "... Roman covers the basics (school, snacks, biggest tourist attraction) and provides some vocabulary.  It's a good introduction to Turkey for a young reader..." - the Zen of Motherhood, blog  "In clear and simple language, Roman demystifies customs that many young readers may be hearing about for the first time...The frequent use of "you" encourages children to imagine themselves visiting Turkey, which makes the book a good choice for early elementary school students studying geography or world cultures...Take as a whole, Roman's series can help kids see that while they many have different names or eat different foods than do their peers in other countries, they have many things in common." - Kirkus Reviews    "It turns out even I am learning a ton from these books. I didn't know the capital of Turkey--it turns out it is Ankara--and I didn't know that Istanbul, which is the second largest city in the world, actually sits on two continents (Asia and Europe)." -  Nicole, Sassy Peach, Book Blogger

"This book has everything that your child needs to learn all about Turkey - from a glossary, history, culture and foods to names that are special to Turkey. Here are some names that are special to Turkey: borek, a pastry filled with meat, cheese or potato; doner kebab, marinated lamb; and a doll known as a bebek. There is so much to learn and explore in this book that your child will thank you for it."

Carole P. Roman is the award-winning author of over fifty children's books. Whether it's pirates, princesses, spies, or discovering the world around us, her books have enchanted educators, parents, and her diverse audience of children of all ages.

Her best-selling book, The Big Book of Silly Jokes for Kids: 800+ Jokes! has reached number one on Amazon in March of 2020 and has remained in the top 200 books since then.

She published Mindfulness for Kids with J. Robin Albertson-Wren.

Carole has co-authored two self-help books. Navigating Indieworld: A Beginners Guide to Self-Publishing and Marketing with Julie A. Gerber, and Marketing Indieworld with both Julie A. Gerber and Angela Hausman.

Roman is the CEO of a global transportation company, as well as a practicing medium.

She also writes adult fiction under the name Brit Lunden and has created an anthology of the mythical town of Bulwark, Georgia with a group of indie authors.
