Carole P. Roman Book Review

Carole P. Roman Book Review

I was first introduced to Carole P. Roman several years ago when I was able to review some of her If You Were Me And Lived In…books. I am always excited when I see her books come up for review. Her books are informative and the drawings by the illustrators are great.  This time we were able to review three books from the Carole P. Roman books and collections. We chose Oh Susannah: Things That Go Bump, Oh Susannah Color With Me, and If You Were Me And Lived In…Egypt.

Having recently read and reviewed Oh Susannah: It’s In The Bag, I knew IMG_20180324_130446my daughters would like to read the next story in the chapter book series.

I like that these chapter books are short and can be read in just a few sittings. Or an older child may be able to read the book in one sitting.

Oh Susannah: Things That Go Bump is a story about Susannah and how she is dreading going to her friend’s house for a sleepover. This book does make reference to the first book, but I don’t think it’s necessary to have read the first book before reading this book. Susannah is nervous about spending the night because of her friend’s brother. He picks on her and tells her their house is haunted. Susannah still goes about her day but is constantly thinking about the sleepover. Eventually, she talks to her mom about her fears and her mom reassures her about it. In the end, she goes and has a good time.

Oh Susannah Color With Me is a coloring book with several illustrated Oh Susannah Coloring Bookpictures about the two Oh Susannah chapter books. There are ten two-page spread pictures to color. After each spread of coloring pages, there is a page with five questions about each book and a page where you can draw something about each book. Because there are not any pictures in the chapter book, the coloring book was fun to look at and remember the parts of the story that the picture matched.

Oh Susannah

Egypt bookIf You Were Me And Lived In…Egypt tells the story about  Egypt from a child’s point of view. It tells where Egypt is located and names a few of the major cities.The story tells what names you may be given and what you would call your family members.  It tells about the pyramids and the Great Sphinx. It also tells about the different traditions you would have in Egypt. It talks about what kinds of foods you would eat and what kinds of games you would play. The book also has a pronunciation guide at the end to help you with pronouncing all of the words the correct way. It is a short twenty-eight page book that can be read in one sitting.

We love reading through the If You Were Me books each time and learning more about different countries. I read the chapter book to my seven year old daughter and she enjoyed looking through the coloring book while I was reading to her. I do want to make a note that the Oh Susannah book does mention Harry Potter. Even though my daughter doesn’t know anything about Harry Potter she never asked about it. We love all of the books and will use them for years to come. We give Carole P. Roman books and collections 5 stars!
