If You Were Me and Lived in… Turkey: A Child’s Introduction to Culture Around the World (A Child’s Introduction to Children’s culture Around the World) (Volume 4)
I love learning about history and different cultures around the world. If You Were Me and Lived in Turkey by Carole P. Roman showed me exactly what it would be like if I were a kid in Turkey instead of America. There were many differences, but some similarities too.
If you were a kid in Turkey, you might live in Istanbul or Ankara. You’d call your mom Annem and your dad Baba and if you went to the market you would use money called lira. The Hagia Sophia is a famous place to visit in Turkey and somewhere I would love to go someday. If you lived in Turkey, you might eat borek and doner kebabs and you would most likely play soccer or with your bebek (doll). Just like in America, you’d have to go to school but you would call it okul. If you were in Istanbul, you could stand in two continents at once!
I learned a lot about life in Turkey. This book was easy to read and fun too. The pictures were good and I think any kid who wants to learn about life in other countries should read this book.
