Join Carole P. Roman and travel through time to visit the most interesting civilizations throughout history in the first four books of her new series. Learn what kind of food you might eat in Ancient Greece, the clothes you wore in 15th century Renaissance Italy, what your name could be in Elizabethan England, and what Colonial American children did for fun. If You Were Me and Lived in…does for history what her other award-winning series did for culture. So get on-board this time-travel machine and discover the world through the eyes of a young person just like you.

This was another great history book for children. It takes the reader on a journey from the Middle Ages through the Renaissance and shows them first-hand the change in the world and how many people went from tending land to becoming merchants and a whole new lifestyle emerged.

This one includes information about some of the world’s most famous people who lived in these days including Leonardo De Vinci and Michelangelo. This book was illustrated by Silvia Brunnetti and each one of her drawings pairs beautifully with the text.

As with the other books by this author, there’s a glossary and list of famous people so children can use it to find out more about the time and people.
