If You Were Me and Lived in… Ancient China – Carole P. Roman, Mateya Arakova (illustrations)



If you were ever curious about what life was like in the year 150 AD in Ancient China…and back then things were really, really different!

Inside your home was an area partitioned off for sleeping.

There was no spot devoted to meals.

But that’s not all- even the little things (like what you called your siblings) is definitely different back then.

…you didn’t call each other by name. Your sisters called you “Older brother,” and you called them “First sister” and “Second sister.”

Though, there were some things that were the same!

People liked bright colors no matter if they were rich or poor.

Yellow was for only the emperor, red was for good luck and white for funerals. Farmers liked blues and greys to hide dirt.

I absolutely loved learning the little quirky bits about Ancient China – like the cool career paths.

You loved watching the noodle maker create long strings of dough that stretched for miles…

I’m honestly LIVING for this series. So cute and I’m learning so much!

I’m also really LOVING these illustrations – absolutely gorgeous!

This one had a lot of details in it and really helped breath a different era. Such an exciting and unique series!

With thanks to the author for a free copy in exchange for an honest review
