Welcome to The Kid’s Korner.

I decided to do this feature as I have so many great children’s books to share. From picture books, to books for beginning readers, to middle graders, I have plenty of fun ones.

Today I’m sharing a fun adventure book in the If You Were Me And Lived In…  series by Carole P. Roman.


If You Were Me And Lived In…

Elizabethan England

by Carole P. Roman


Genre: Education / Adventure / Children’s Book

Grade Level: 3 – 9

 My Review

Ever wondered what it would be like to live during the Elizabethan era? The author spins the time travel dial and you are there. Walking among queens and kings, merchants and explorers. Those with money and those with less eat different foods, wear different clothes, but all follow the same religion, the one practiced by the royals.

A non fiction tale told from the view point of a child living in London during the 1600s, the author did her research. While this book is directed towards a young reading audience, I learned a lot, and your child will have fun while learning too.

And I thought it was a wonderful idea for the author to provide a glossary at the end of the book to help with word pronunciation and understanding their meaning, along with a list of renowned people from the era.

 I read and enjoyed another book in this series, The American West, and I’m thrilled that the author included fun little facts you wouldn’t normally think about in this book also. Highly recommend this one too.

    So cool! I know this book would be above most my Kinders but I love that the author has created a story book for younger grades that hits on some of the biggest elements of history.

  2. Wow, sounds great. Thanks for sharing. I haven’t read any children books for more than a decade. I know it’s crazy. So now I have a hard time recommending books for my nieces and nephews.

      My son is too old now but I still love to read and recommend books for young readers. Brings out the kid in me too and such fun memories.

  3. I was going to say the same, it’s nice for those younger kids. Great find!

    Sounds kinda cool!

  5. I think I would love this book. My youngest babysitting charge just turned ten, so I bet she might still like this. I’m going to check it out. Thanks for the heads up! ☺

      I think she would too. I read it more than once and I learned things I never knew! It’s got fun illustrations and I like how it’s presented.
