Readers will be able to learn about the capital, common names, a beloved holiday, as well as favorite food and other fun facts. This book is an excellent introduction for those beginners who want to learn about the many thrilling places and great people who share our planet.

My Thoughts:

If You Were Me and Lived in Norway is the third in the "If You Were Me..." series written by author Carole P. Roman.  With a teaching background, Carole introduces children to a new country, new culture, and the wonders of living in another part of our fabulous world.

In If You Were Me and Lived in Norway, Carole takes you to Oslo,  the capital city "surrounded by green hills and mountains.  It has 343 lakes and two rivers."  The reader learns new common names for a girl and for a boy, mom and dad.  If you are shopping in Norway, you need to know a kroner is a type of money you might use to make your purchase.  As well, you learn how to say a few words in another language.  The book also contains a pronunciation guide.

This series is valuable as a teaching tool to introduce your child or your class to a new country and the people who live there.  With colourful well-drawn illustrations and conversational text, children and parents alike will enjoy visiting a new land.

Carole P. Roman is a former teacher and an accomplished author.  According to Carole Roman's website, there are three other books in this series including:  If You Were Me and Lived in Mexico, If You Were Me and Lived in Asia, If You Were Me and Lived in France.  She has also written and book for children about yoga, "I Want to Do Yoga Too."  See her website   http://caroleproman.com for a complete list of her published works.
