Carole P. Roman Books and Collections/TOS Review


As you all probably know, I am a part of  The Old Schoolhouse Homeschool Review Crew. I was on the Crew for the 2010/2011 Crew years as well, but had to take a break until this year. Anyhow, when the review opportunity for Carole P. Roman books and collections came up, the crew members were SO excited. I had to see what all the excitement was about! 

As I checked out the Carole P. Roman website, I noticed there were books with award stickers all over the covers

Captain No Beard


It is not that often that I come across a book that has this many awards, if I ever have! 


Carol P Roman Children's Book Author

Carole P. Roman is an award winning author. She received the Kirkus Reviews Best of 2012 Award for her first book Captain No Beard. She has since received the Pinnacle Book Achievement Award and many Reader's Choice Awards. 



I was allowed to pick three books of my choice. I had not heard of these books before now, so I wasn't as familiar with them as some of the other crew members, so I pretty much just looked at the covers and picked a few that I thought Brently would like. 

I ended up choosing two that were from the Captain No Beard series. I did not realize that this was a series, or I would have picked the first two, or maybe the first 3! (Thar's what I get for not paying attention!) . Because of course, now I want the whole series, and I'm sure a lot of you are like me, and it drives me crazy to not have the whole set, or have just a few out of order. And I can't even get the first one right now because there is only one left in stock! I bet after people started reading the reviews that the Crew has written, these books started flying off the shelves! Guess I'm out of luck until they get more in stock.. Poor me. lol 

Anyhow,  I chose books number four and seven of the series. 

Book number four of the series is called Strangers on the High Seas


Oh My Goodness, this book is adorable! The names are cute, the story line is fun and funny. I actually laughed out loud a few times myself! 

I like books that either teach a moral lesson or are educational in nature. This book is too cute that I would want it even if it didn't teach anything, but it does teach your children a few good lessons.
 It reinforces not to speak to strangers or approach animals without permission. It also teaches that everyone is valuable in their own way. 

The illustrations are super cute and inviting. 



I really enjoyed this book. Notice I say "I". But not only would my 3 year old and any other child enjoy this book, the parents would enjoy reading it to their children. 


The second book I chose was book number seven. Captain No Beard and the Aurora Borealis


The seventh book in the series did not disappoint. 

Your child will learn a little "science" in this book. They will learn a bit about the Aurora Borealis and the North Star and what the real name for the North Star is. 

The central theme in this book however, is that stealing is wrong. I love this! 




I am totally loving this series, and really do want to eventually have the whole series for my son. I know he will love these even more as he gets a bit older. At this point he wants to take every book I read to him and read to me. I haven't made it through a whole book yet without him taking it. But I think that's OK! He wants to read and that is what we all strive for, right?

The third book that I chose was a bedtime story book called Rocket-Bye.


This cute bedtime story introduces your children to space, the planets and the constellations as they are listening to a bedtime story. 




I am thoroughly in love with Carole P. Roman and her books. I think my son is too!





As I have already mentioned many times, I want the entire Captain No Beard Series, and of all of the other amazing books and series that she has, I am really interested in the If You Were Me and Lived In...An Introduction to Ancient Civilizations Through Time. This would be the next series I would want to collect. 

IF you were me and lived in


I am particularly interested in If You Were Me and Lived in Colonial America, If You Were Me and Lived in the American West and If You Were Me and Lived on...Mars



There is another series similar to this one called If You Were Me and Lived in...A Child's Introduction to Cultures Around the World

These would be great for learning World History. 


IF you were me and lived in ...


All in all I very much recommend Carole P. Roman's Books and Collections to any parent looking for quality reading material for their children. 

Any time I write a review and I am excited and have fun writing it, that speaks volumes to me. This was one of those reviews. 

What are your favorite Carole P. Roman books???
