Hail! Aztecs

by Jen Green

Illustrations by Jane Yamada

Part of a Series: Hail! History.

“Montezuma tells all!” reads a breathless headline on the cover of this tabloidesque history. Inside, short paragraphs presented in colorful boxes provide plentiful information on life as an Aztec, and are accompanied by playful readers’ polls, quizzes, and “Dos and Don’ts” lists that will keep kids engaged. True to the format, there’s plenty of eye-candy: readers will be treated to richly colored illustrations of ancient dress; giggle-inducing photos, showing, for example, a Chihuahua waiting to become a casserole; more serious images of period artifacts; and cartoons showing daily life. Do your students want to know what Aztec bling was like, or how to treat a rash with a cactus? Look no further.
