“If You Were Me and Lived in… Italy” by Carole P. Roman, is about a country located in the southern part of Europe, also called lo Stivale (lo stee-val-e) or “the boot” because the country has the shape of one. The Capital city is Rome (Ro-m-a) which was founded in the year 753 BC and that is the only city that has another country inside it, The Catholic (Cath-o-lic), and its capital Vatican City. Also in Rome, you will see the Coliseum (Col-es-see-yum) an ancient theater built of stone and concrete, being the largest Amphitheatre in the world.

It is also a book that will teach you some of the basic Italian words like Gelato, formaggio, pane, Nonna, etc., as well as some cultural festivities, and the way Italians celebrate and their food.

It shows some activities with the families as they get together to enjoy the weekend, like going to see grandparents on Sundays and watching football.

I enjoyed “If You Were Me and Lived in… Italy” by Carole P. Roman very much and liked the pronunciation guide.
