How We Use Carole P. Roman’s Children’s Books

The books we received in exchange of our honest review:

  1. Oh Susannah Color With Me
  2. Oh Susannah It’s In The Bag
  3. Oh Susannah Things That Go Bump
  4. If You Were Me and Lived in…the Middles Ages

We used the history book If You Were Me and Lived in…the Middles Ages as part of our history curriculum since we are learning about the middle ages this year. I ended up using the book as a Read Aloud, which we read in two nights! This is pretty astounding since the book is not a short read; it has nearly a hundred pages, includes a glossary of terms from the middle ages in the book, and includes summaries of famous people from that time period.

The kids liked the book a lot because the author writes it in the second person. She says “you” throughout the book, so the kids can relate well to what she is explaining and describing in the book, such as:

“You knew the church was a major part of your life. You were taught to pray many times throughout the day. Your father said the church was more powerful than the king.” page 70

“You hated when they did that [blood-letting] to you [when you got sick] because it left you weak for months. You much preferred to let Old Edith, the midwife give you herbs instead. She delivered all the babies, and you thought she knew more than any old doctor.” page 60

“You sat near your parents and closer to the salt, indicating you were more important than other people in the household.” page 26

If You Were Me and Lived in… the Middle Ages

We also received two books in the Oh Susannah series, along with the coloring book that goes with it. My kids were often found snuggled up on the couch reading Oh Susannah’s independent readers. With the bright cover art and beautiful illustrations done by Mateya Arkova, these books were easy to love.

Fun Fact: Carole P. Roman is an NIEA Finalist (National Indie Excellence Awards) with her Oh Susannah books!

The coloring book that goes hand in hand with the Oh Susannah books is called Oh Susannah Color With Me. Again, the illustrations are by Mateya Arkova. The lines in the coloring book are not your normal thick black lines; instead, they are wispy lines of art! Although my kids colored in crayons, I could totally see how beautiful these pictures would become if colored by watercolor paint!

Another Fun Fact: The coloring book won FIVE STARS indicating it as a Readers’ Favorite!
