This is non-fiction book about the Aztec Empire from Scholastic’s “True Book” series. The author provides a general background about the Aztec culture, rise to and fall from power, language, diet and way of life. The pictures and illustrations in the book are interesting, colorful, clear and enrich the text. The writing was easy to understand and should appeal to an audience of 3rd to 6th graders. I would have liked a bit more detail about this rich culture, but it is enough to be interesting.
