knowledge Of Astronomy Without The Benefit Of Telescopes Or Written Language This informational books provides an overview of life among the Aztec, Inca, and Mayan civilizations. It covers a wide variety of topics, but it takes a very shallow pass on those to accommodate information about three distinct cultures. I would put this book in a fifth through eighth grade classroom as it deals with the sensitive topic of human sacrifice and uses fairly advanced vocabulary at times. I would use this book to instruct students how to research and as a starting point to help students determine a narrow focus for a research project. I would also use it as an example of providing information in a way that is not particularly indepth. Aztec, Inca, and Maya
Baquedano, Elizabeth
a great children's resource aztecs and mayan culture Ugh. This was awful. [If you're going to go with DK than a better book by them was "DKfindout! Maya, Incas, and Aztecs"].

This was poorly laid out and edited. The double pages look like they've simply been filled with many photos of museum artefacts jumbled on pages (not always identifying origin) instead of carefully curated infographics and visual aids. The tone is often negative and feels like it's talking down about 'primitive' cultures rather than celebrating successes or techniques that utilise specific aspects of the surrounding environment. It also repeatedly lumps three very different cultures and civilisations together as 'Mesoamerican' which, frankly, seems like it would be insulting to any direct descendants of said civilisations.

Miss 5 and I like to explore different books and authors at the library, sometimes around particular topics or themes. We try to get different ones out every week or so; it's fun for both of us to have the variety and to look at a mix of new & favourite authors. Excellent pictorial history book specially intended for young people. Very clear photographs and gives a much detailed ideal of ancient Mesoamerica and Andes people. It is utterly disgusting and unfortunate that a few people from Europe destroyed such ancient civilization due to greed. Tey not only killed life but destroyed and devastated whatever they saw. Estonian version is titled Aztecs, which is rather misleading if you pick it up to learn only of themthe information about different civilizations is all mixed up, also adding in Nazca, Chimu, Moche etc. That made reading it like taking a spin in the tumble drier. It does have really pretty pictures. Aztec have very unique way of using things. We don't use it anymore the way they use it. but we have new designs. Aztec have great things and great way to use in their daily life. Everything they use its made by hands. Clear illustrations and explanations. The Incan's seemed to be different in many ways from the other two cultures so I am not sure why they are grouped together. Aztec, Inca & Maya: Book Review

As in all DK Eyewitness Books, it's all about the pictures!

In this volume, author Elizabeth Baquedano focuses on the lives, culture, and deaths of the ancient civilizations that were spread out along what is now Mexico, Central America, and the western coast of South America.

Skewed towards children, each twopage chapter has loads of colorful pictures with short descriptions. Baquedano covers twentynine subjects such as Mesoamerican Cities, Weaving & Spinning, Precious Stones, and Dance & Music. Of course any book about these cultures wouldn't be complete without chapters on Human Sacrifice and The Spanish Conquest.

I love seeing ancient artifacts and wondering about the lives of the people who owned them, so even though it's a children's book, other adults like me would enjoy this volume.

Aztec, Inca, & Maya gives you just enough so that you feel like you've just walked out of a museum. If you are interested in these ancient cultures, you'll want to read more about them. The things that used to be lasted now we don't use it anymore. But they has given us an ideas how can we use and make things according to the design . We still can see them in Museum.

Elizabeth Baquedano is a Lecturer at University of London, United Kingdom.
