Book Review/Giveaway: If You Were Me And Lived In CHINA. End July 17th


25790900

If You Were Me And Lived In CHINA. A child’s introduction to Culture around the World. By Carole P. Roman

About the Book: I have always wanted to visit China and thanks to Ms. Roman’s book she had made it more exciting and interesting to know what to look for and see

China which is officially known as the People’s Republic of China which has a population of more the 135 billion people living there which is the most populated country in the world.

You might of learned about the Yangtze River which is in the South, or the Yellow River which is located in the North. Although the capital is Beijing many people called it Peking, China has major highways, trains and expressways and the second busiest airport in the world.

Children’s names are picked because they have meanings so boys who are called An which means peace or Bao which is another word for treasure and Fu for happiness. Girls are called Hong because they like the color red, Yu which stands for Jade which is a gemstone or Zi which is the word for smart. What would you like to be called if you lived in China? I think I would like to be called Zi.

China has some amazing places to visit like the Great Wall of China. It is a stone barricaded which was built thousands of years ago to keep strangers out of China. Nobody is sure but they believe it is about 5,500 hundred miles. Another very famous tourist site is the giant clay army that was only recently discovered that had been buried underground for more then two thousand years. You will be told that there are over eight thousand individually sculpted soldiers and about 520 statues of horses and 130 of just chariots. You will love explore the many tourist sites as you will have an opportunity to learn so much.

The New year is a very fun holiday to be part of and begins at midnight with fireworks which hope that the noise will chase off the evil spirits. It is a very important day to honor your grandparents. You would receive red envelops filled with good luck money. Because the celebration last fifteen days you will get to enjoy many delicious meals but better learn how to use the chopsticks because if you drop them it could bring you bad luck. They are very superstitious people.

Pages: 30

Cost: $9.99

My Review: This book gives readers an inside into the culture of China, a place you never taught about visiting but now can. Imagine standing on the Great Wall of China taking a long walk or visiting the famous tourist site, the giant terracotta or clay army that was recently discovered that had been buried underground for more then two thousand years. Visit the Forbidden city were their emperors lived with over 4,000 rooms and hidden cambers. Learn about their currency, food and their favorite spot table tennis or ping pong. Join them as they celebrate the New Year with fireworks and making as much noise to chase off evil spirits. What a great way to end the story. With only 30 pages the author did her best to give readers a lot of information including 3 pages of  pronunciation guide.

FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.

Using an imaginary game she played with her grandson as a base, Captain No Beard was born. It has followed with four more books to the series.
Motivated by her love of yoga, Roman has written a book that not only teaches four poses, but shows how easy and accessible yoga can be.
She has just finished the first of six books in a groundbreaking new nonfiction series about culture around the world. “If You Were Me and Lived in…” combines her teaching past with her love of exploration and interest in the world around us.

Writing for children has opened up a whole second act for her. While she is still working in her family business, this has enabled her to share her sense of humor as well as love for history and culture with the audience she adores. Roman lives on Long Island with her husband and near her children. http://caroleproman.com/About_Carole

Black History Month 2015 Theme: A Century of Black Life, History, and Culture


Black History Month 2015 Theme: A Century of Black Life, History, and Culture

Over the past century, African American life, history, and culture have become major forces in the United States and the world. In 1915, few could have imagined that African Americans in music, art, and literature would become appreciated by the global community. Fewer still could have predicted the prominence achieved by African Americans, as well as other people of African descent, in shaping world politics, war, and diplomacy. Indeed, it was nearly universally believed that Africans and people of African descent had played no role in the unfolding of history and were a threat to American civilization itself. A century later, few can deny the centrality of African Americans in the making of American history.

This transformation is the result of effort, not chance. Confident that their struggles mattered in human history, black scholars, artists, athletes, and leaders self-consciously used their talents to change how the world viewed African Americans. The New Negro of the post-World War I era made modernity their own and gave the world a cornucopia of cultural gifts, including jazz, poetry based on the black vernacular, and an appreciation of African art. African American athletes dominated individual and team sports transforming baseball, track-and-field, football, boxing, and basketball. In a wave of social movements, African American activism transformed race relations, challenged American foreign policy, and became the American conscience on human rights. http://asalh100.org/black-history-themes/2015-theme/

Contributions by African-Americans to art, literature, sports and pop culture.

The theme for Black History Month in 2015 is “A Century of Black Life, History and Culture”. chronicling the important contributions by African-Americans to art, literature, sports and pop culture. In the early 20th century, the rise of a totally new form of music — jazz — can be traced back to African Americans of the post-World War I generation. This was closely followed by the Harlem Renaissance that introduced the voices of African American writers and artists to the national conversation. By the 1960’s, the African American museum movement saw the opening of nationwide centers exhibiting the advances made by African Americans in art, history, and science — culminating in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture.

Doo wop, rock n’ roll, and hip hop can all trace their roots to the African American experience. Legendary sports figures, as well as artists, musicians, actors and actresses also have undeniably contributed to American culture as their influence continues to spread worldwide.
