Gr 4-7--Both of these books feature 11 topics on double-page spreads, illustrated with colorful, detailed paintings. The texts appear to be little more than captions for the artwork, but they communicate a lot of information. Aztec Times includes the origins of this early civilization, daily life and customs, and the arrival of the Spanish. Viking Times, while not discounting the warlike ways of the northern folk, covers explorations and trade, the Norman conquerors of England, and the Christianization of the Vikings. Each book includes a world time line and a pictorial map. The back covers fold out into game boards with directions (and should present no difficulties in circulation). The games differ in how they are played, and are sufficiently complex to keep young people interested. Joanna Defrates's What Do We Know About the Aztecs? (Peter Bedrick, 1993) has a similar format for the same age group; Tim Wood's The Aztecs (Viking, 1992) goes into more detail. Fiona MacDonald's How Would You Survive as an Aztec? (Watts, 1997) is even more interactive. Margaret Mulvihill's Viking Longboats (Watts, 1989), in spite of the title, has much the same coverage, although in less detail; while Jacqueline Morley's How Would You Survive As a Viking (Watts, 1995) shares the interactive format of the Aztec entry in the same series. These are attractive, useful additions wherever more material is needed.
