If You Were Me and Lived in... the Middle Ages

This is a sponsored post and contains affiliate links. As a homeschool mom, I love finding new books for educating my daughter-not necessarily for a full curriculum. Sometimes I just enjoy finding books that will peak her interest in learning more about a topic. When I saw that Carole P. Roman has now written books about different civilizations, adding to her "If you were me and lived in..." books, I wanted to check these books out.
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 have eaten during the Middle Ages, the clothes you might wear, what your name could be, and children did for fun. 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.
I really wanted to like If you were me and lived in... the Middle Ages (written by Carole P. Roman). As a young girl, I remember loving history and enjoyed learning about it. I like that Carole tries to get the readers attention by writing from the viewpoint of a young child whose father was a knight. At various points throughout the book, it compares different people in the feudal system.

When I read Carole P. Roman's book for the first time, I immediately noticed three errors. The error that is most glaring is on the cover, which should read "If you were me and lived in... the Middle Ages". Instead, the cover has "If you were me and lived in... Middle Ages". The information was presented in a dry, boring way and easily attainable information. My daughter usually loves when I read to her, but after reading for 20 pages, she said, "I want to read something else." Meanwhile, I thought, "Me too." So we put the book down and picked it up later.


What's your favorite time period?
I received a copy of this book for the purpose of review.
