If You Were Me and Lived in…The American West by Carole P. Roman

I received this book from the author for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.

The Synopsis:

Join Carole P. Roman and travel through time to visit the most interesting civilizations throughout history in her exciting new series. Learn what kind of food you might eat on the Oregon Trail, the clothes you wore in in the American West, what your name could be in the 19th century, and what children did for fun once their many chores were done. If You Were Me and Lived in…does for history what her other award-winning series did for culture. So get on-board this time-travel machine and discover the world through the eyes of a young person just like you.


Another excellent book to add to Carole’s If You Were Me and Lived in..Ancient Times series. Just like the previous books in this series, it covers in creative detail the different hobbies, chores, names, and settings from this time in history.

The pictures are well done and realistic, while perfectly illustrating the words. The writing is easy to follow with simple words and well defined vocabulary words in the glossary. The story is easy to follow and the way it reads will keep the kid’s attention as they interact with the pictures and questions.

Overall, I was pleased with the newest addition to the series and recommend it to an audience of 6+, in either solo or group settings. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
