“If You Were Me and Lived in…Ancient Greece” by Carole P. Romanis a great story that will take you to the year 350 and discover how people lived back in those years.

You will learn that Greece introduced democracy and was a model for many years. Also, that in all the cities they believed in the same religion and all spoke Greek. The way they built houses was with clay bricks and floors made of hard dirt, placing a fire pit in the center to burn coals all the time to honor the goddess Hestia (Hes-tee-ya). There were many olive trees around to give the people shade.

Their common foods were olives, figs, bread, cheese, grapes, and meat only for special days. They had fear to get a disease from drinking plain water and mixed it with wine to kill germs.

In “If You Were Me and Lived in Ancient Greece,” you will have the chance to discover more about the culture, education,  and life in a different time. It is a great lesson book! I enjoyed it very much and loved the illustrations.

A Note from Paola’s Mom:

“If You Were Me and Lived in…Ancient Greece” by Carole P. Roman is an excellent way to provide so much information, allowing the reader the opportunity to learn how civilizations started and compare it now days.
