On “If You Were Me and Lived in…South Korea“:
“Roman has proven her skill at writing children’s books with her Captain No Beard series, as well as with the other volumes in her cultural series. If you were me and lived in …South Korea uses a technique of speaking directly to the child reading or listening, similar to Laura Numeroff’s If You Give a…series. This strategy is well suited to a book about foreign cultures as it gives little imaginations a boost by helping children envision themselves growing up with customs and traditions different from the ones they’re familiar with…” Peter Dabbene ForeWord Reviews Clarion Review
