Another installment to Carole P. Roman’s If You Were Me And Lived In...This time we are introduced to the ancient Mali Empire. These books are fun to look at and even parents/adults learn so much.
I had actually never heard of the Mali people nor that Mali means hippo. This empire had big trade routes and was known for them. They named their children names you often see in the Christian bible although they were Islamic and Muslims.
I am never sure the age that this series should be read. It is meant for kids but I learn so much as an adult as well. I just wish the content of what learn would stay in my head but that is a whole other issue.
I look forward to reading the rest of the series. Can not really go wrong with learning things.
