Did you know that Italy looks like a boot when you look at it on the map? This beautifully colored, illustrated children's book, If You Were Me and Lived in... Renaissance Italy: An Introduction to Civilizations Throughout Time (Volume 7) by Carole P. Roman, will provide young readers with an in-depth history and education regarding the names, culture and food that make Italy one of the most desired countries to visit. From medieval times to the Renaissance (rebirth) era, Italy has greatly evolved. Ironically, if you knew this country's past, you would never have guessed how its beauty has been created to what we see now. There is so much to learn from this book, from the famous painters like Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci to Raphael, to famous people including Galileo and Machiavelli, and let's not forget the glossary at the back.
I have read several of Carole P. Roman's books within this series and have enjoyed each and every one. Every time I come away from reading one of her books, I learn so much from word pronunciations and the culture to what makes the country so special. Reading this or any of Roman’s book doesn't disappoint. As I read this book, I'm left with the feeling that I've just taken a trip around the world and have tasted the essence of Renaissance Italy. This book has so much to offer your child and I'm sure that they will make it one of their favorites, and they'll discuss and share it with their friends.
