Latest in Children's Series, If You Were Me and Lived in Russia By Carole P. Roman Great Cultural Experience for All Ages!


 If you were me and lived in Russia (rush-a) you would live in Northern Eurasia (Ur-ray-ja). You might call it the Russian Federation  because it has many different nationalities and ethnic groups living within its vast borders. Russia is famous for being cold, but it is so big that it has nine different time zones and a variety of climate from warm to cold.

Helping to Bring Peace Around the World!


If You Were Me and
 Lived in...Russia

A Child's Introduction
to Culture Around the World

By Carole P. Roman




You may have noticed from time to time that Book Readers Heaven is honored to have visitors quite often from Russia and the Ukraine... I was so please, therefore, to have an opportunity to read the latest addition to a wonderful Children's Series! Imagine how much it might affect world-wide peace if our children could learn and know about the children who live in other countries!

This time your children will have an opportunity to visit Moscow! How I wish I could visit it in reality, but this color-illustrated book certainly did a wonderful job on the major cultural points in this great country! In fact, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a small flag from the country--quite beautiful! And speaking of beautiful, the art work is brilliantly bold with deep, dark colors that stand out to clearly delight all children. I was very impressed with the colors shown for the domes to be seen on many of the buildings. almost saying non-verbally, come see me! Here's a pic the author showed before the book was out...but I guarantee that the colors actually are bolder, brighter, simply fantastic!

You could live in the capital city Moscow (MOS-cow) and people would call you a "muscopvite" (mus-co-vite). It is the most populated city in Europe and fifth largest city in the world.

If you are a boy, your parents might have chosen to name you Ivan (ee-van)
 
 Maxim (Max-eem), or Alexander (a-lex-an-der).

If your parents needed a girl's name, they could have picked
Natalya (Nah-tal-ya)
Tatiana (tah-chee-ah-nah)
or Anya (Aan-yuh).

Children ready for another school brings flowers!
In addition to learning about the capital, popular names, and family information, readers also learn about clothing, money, food, games children play and more about primary important sites such as the Red Square... and so much more! Check out the special dolls available!



Red Square is the main market place and the site of state ceremonies and parades. It is very central to the city, and all major streets which connect to the highways originate there. You can also see both St. Basil's Cathedral and the Kremlin...
