If You Were Me and Lived In Ancient Greece Review

Ancient Greece

If You Were Me and Lived In… Ancient Greece takes us back through 2300 years to the birthplace of Western civilisation.

Have you ever wondered about ancient world civilizations and how governments, politics and democracy came into being? Well now you can in Carole P Roman’s If You Were Me and Lived In… Ancient Greece.

Carole P. Roman is a prolific children’s author and she has written over 35 books and won over 100 awards. The If You Were Me and Lived In… series is a series of educational children’s books and originally introduced children to different world cultures, the latest additions to the series have expanded and now introduce children to ancient civilisations from around the world. So I was delighted when I received the latest addition to the series; Ancient Greece.

If You Were Me and Lived In… Ancient Greece takes us back 2,300 years to the country that introduced the world to democracy, politics, government and philosophy among other things.

Its 54 pages are packed with a wealth of information along with accompanying beautifully drawn illustrations, by Mateya Arkova. While at its heart it is an educational book the facts about the ancient Greeks, their lives, towns, jobs, gods and goddesses are delivered with ease.

If You Were Me and Lived In… Ancient Greece is written in a way children will understand and delivered with a bit of humour mixed with the facts and asks questions to get children thinking and engaged with the book. As usual, very well written and with simple pronunciations in brackets next to Greeks names and terms children will have no trouble understanding it and will learn new words and concepts in the process.

A great introduction to learning about ancient civilisations and history. Children, parents and teachers will love it, I know I do.
