Review: If You Were Me and Lived In … Norway – An Introduction to Learning About Other Cultures

"Another book in the worldwide series, this twenty-eight page paperback book is targeted toward preschool to early elementary school children and readers who like to learn words from other countries. With no profanity, scary scenes, or violence, the book would best be read to beginner readers based on some of the more complicated, lengthy words. The sophomoric illustrations are easy to decipher and cover the complete page with a nicely sized wording font. There is a page at the end of the book on how to pronounce certain words.
Norway is an interesting place if you lived there. Besides having its capital as Oslo, the reader learns it contains three hundred and forty-three lakes with two rivers. With beautiful views of the colorful aurora borealis, it is home of the Kirkenes Snowhotel, completely made out of snow and ice including its furniture.
With plenty to do such as snowmobile, ice fishing, and riding a dogsled pulled by up to eighty huskies or dogs, there is also skiing, which has been enjoyed there for over four thousand years. One of the best days of the year is the seventeenth of May called Syttend Mai, the country’s independence day." Read more at
