The book is set out well with a combination of text, pictures and craft activities. There is information on the Aztec Gods, Tenochtitlan, Aztec temples, clothes, Aztec markets, crafts and the Spanish Conquest. There are also about 4 or 5 craft ideas, such as making an Aztec head-dress. Art and craft is definitely not a strength of mine but the activities look as though they are easy enough to follow...even for me! If you're teaching the Aztec topic, then I think this is one book which you could add to your pile of resources. Many Aztec books are too advanced for KS2 but this book is just right.

This 32-page book is an interesting and colourful introduction to the ancient Aztec civilisation of Mexico. Each of its two-page chapters is well-illustrated with excellently-produced colourful artwork and photographs. The craft-based chapters show you how to make paper-copies of Aztec items, though you have to draw them yourself rather than follow a template. This would be an ideal introductory volume for schoolchildren to the history of the Aztecs, as well as a source of craft-related activities.
