Our Review of If You Were Me and Lived In Italy
Miss L Says:
What is it about? It was about Italy. I liked everything. What is cool about it is we found out that Italy is shaped like a boot. On August 15th all the people close up and go to the beach or the mountains. I would like kids to read this book. I would rate it 5 stars. I would want to read book number 2. I would not like to go Italy. I would not like to go to Italy because I do not like the Coliseum.
This was a solid book that does exactly what it intends to do. Its not dazzling or outstanding visually but it strongly appealed to my six year old and made her interested in reading more of the series, so it’s definitely doing something right even if I can’t identify what it is that appeals to her so much.
The illustrations are mediocre, but the style seems visually appealing to my child regardless. She was a bit creeped out by the picture of the Coliseum for some reason. It was definitely nice that the author has the pronunciation of the Italian words right beside them.
Overall, good educational book that is pat of a series that might be great for a kindergarten or first grade classroom.
