Some time ago I was offered to review a new book by Carole P. Roman, If You Were Me and Lived In South Korea. Of course, I couldn’t pass it up, especially considering that we are hoping to “visit” South Korea virtually in our journey around the world. I’d say that the book is best suited for kids who are 3-5 years old. It gives a very basic introduction to this country and uses perhaps a dozen Korean words. I think it’s a good basic introduction to the country, but I wish there was an index with additional sources for the students and parents who want to know more. I do recommend this series to parents who want to introduce their young children to world geography, food and tradition in an age appropriate way without going into too many details. Right now three books appear to be available in the series (Mexico, France and South Korea), and I hope more is on their way!
