Grade 5-8–This small, square art book pays homage to the animals of Aztec mythology. From the eagle/cuauhtli to the snail/tecciztli, all 40 animals carry a message of harmony, of life, and/or of death. With monochromatic ink-and-brush illustrations, the images are based on artifacts from the Mexican Anthropology Museum, Mayor Temple Museum, and the Quai Branly Museum. The vocabulary, and ideas such as death, sacrifice, etc., can make this book difficult for young children to understand. For older children, this book is a starting point to develop an understanding of myths and their place in ancient cultures.–Ana Rodriguez, Tamarac Elementary School, FL END
