China which is officially known as the People's Republic of China which has a population of more the 135 billion people living there which is the most populated country in the world.

You might of learned about the Yangtze River which is in the South, or the Yellow River which is located in the North. Although the capital is Beijing many people called it Peking, China has major highways, trains and expressways and the second busiest airport in the world.

Children's names are picked because they have meanings so boys who are called An which means peace or Bao which is another word for treasure and Fu for happiness. Girls are called Hong because they like the color red, Yu which stands for Jade which is a gemstone or Zi which is the word for smart. What would you like to be called if you lived in China? I think I would like to be called Zi.

China has some amazing places to visit like the Great Wall of China. It is a stone barricaded which was built thousands of years ago to keep strangers out of China. Nobody is sure but they believe it is about 5,500 hundred miles. Another very famous tourist site is the giant clay army that was only recently discovered that had been buried underground for more then two thousand years. You will be told that there are over eight thousand individually sculpted soldiers and about 520 statues of horses and 130 of just chariots. You will love explore the many tourist sites as you will have an opportunity to learn so much.

The New year is a very fun holiday to be part of and begins at midnight with fireworks which hope that the noise will chase off the evil spirits. It is a very important day to honor your grandparents. You would receive red envelops filled with good luck money. Because the celebration last fifteen days you will get to enjoy many delicious meals but better learn how to use the chopsticks because if you drop them it could bring you bad luck. They are very superstitious people.

If You Were Me and Lived in...China: A Child's Introduction to Culture Around the WorldWondering how to help teach your child about different cultures, customs, foods and languages? Carole P. Roman has put together a fabulous series for younger readers, or even better, for families to read together. Travel around the world with your child from your own reading corner! If You Were Me and Lived in...China is not overpowering to young minds, filled with fun facts that will encourage children to have an interest in the world around them, from the differences to the similarities that all people share, no matter what they look, dress or talk like.

What struck me was, beside the spark of curiosity about the world, was that by discussing the differences in people on the outside, inside everyone is the same. If just one child took those thoughts to heart, wouldn’t that be a positive step in making the world a better place to live?

Brilliantly put together, easy to understand and perfect to share with others, these pearls of information and wonderfacts help a child enjoy the learning process, while fueling their imaginations about what it may be like to live in China or any of the other countries in this series!!

I received this copy from Carole P. Roman in exchange for my honest review.
