Paola: I really liked saying the Scottish words out loud in “If You Were Me and Lived in Scotland” by Carol P Roman. I wish our national animal was a unicorn! After reading, my mom showed me a video of what a bagpipe sounds like. I hope Nessie is real, I really want to go see Loch Ness Lake!
Mom: “If You Were Me and Lived in Scotland” was the first book I read in this series and was really impressed by the concept of exploring cultures through children. This book goes through the day to day activities of children in Scotland and even explores special events and holidays. The kids not only start to learn about different cultures, but parents learn a lot as well and can start a conversation with their children about tolerance and the differences between people.
