You'll never guess what crazy dish the ancient Incan kings ate. But you can read all about it, and more, in If You Were Me and Lived in...Peru, the latest book in Carole P. Roman's fun travel series for kids. An exciting introduction to world cultures written for young readers ages three through eight, this new expedition takes kids to South America and gives them a colorful glimpse into what living in Peru is like. Highlighting a myriad of topics, including language, cuisine, climate, and history, this book teaches kids about diversity while also revealing to them the important truth that we are all connected. Parents, grandparents, and teachers alike will love opening their children's eyes to the world around them in a fun and easy way-and they'll be happily surprised when they end up learning a few things themselves. Fair warning, parents: your kids will want to start celebrating a new February holiday after reading this book. But don't worry. You can always tell them you're making a certain special, royal Inca dish for dinner.
