I wasn't as thrilled with this book as I thought that I would be and to me, it was somewhat of a let-down. The ideal of the story was great. Teaching kids that being a big brother or sister is a good thing, however, the ending of this was not hitting it home for me. A little girl in it, states that she would love to be a big sister and at the end, her mom comes home with a brand new baby. The little girl acts surprised. To me, it's just not that realistic. However, for the importance of the story, I am giving this the rating of 3 stars.

Named to Kirkus Reviews' Best of 2012 for her first book, award winning author Carole P. Roman started writing as a dare from one of her sons. Using an imaginary game she played with her grandson as a base, Captain No Beard was born. It has followed with four more books to the series.Motivated by her love of yoga, Roman has written a book that not only teaches four poses, but shows how easy and accessible yoga can be.

She has just finished the first of six books in a groundbreaking new nonfiction series about culture around the world. "If You Were Me and Lived in..." combines her teaching past with her love of exploration and interest in the world around us.

Writing for children has opened up a whole second act for her. While she is still working in her family business, this has enabled her to share her sense of humor as well as love for history and culture with the audience she adores. Roman lives on Long Island with her husband and near her children.
