I received copies of the following books in the If You Were Me And Lived In...An Introduction To Civilizations Throughout Time series, for review: Ancient China, American West, Colonial America, Elizabethan England, Ancient Greece, and Renaissance Italy.

This series by Carole P. Roman, for readers seven and older, is a treasure trove of fascinating history! In each book, Carole P. Roman boldly brings the past to the present for young readers through age appropriate facts and information. Each book places readers right into its specified time period by having them pretend to be a young boy or girl who actually lived during that time. Roman discusses ALL aspects of each time period, from what your name might have been, where you would have lived, what your parents did for a living, the clothes you would have worn, the food you would have eaten, and the general life you would have led. Each book has clearly been thoroughly researched and the information is presented in both a fun and educational manner. There are various illustrators in the series and each one bring his/her own unique and engaging style to these books. Through bright colors, lively scenes, and detailed depictions, these time periods simply come to life!

At the back of each book, Roman has included an awesome sections that discusses the various important figures of each time period, which is a really neat bonus feature.
