Avoid Becoming an Aztec Sacrifice! by Fiona MacDonald, Fiona MacDonald

The topics covered in this book include beliefs and attitudes of the Aztecs to life and death, festivals and the geography of the area in which the Aztecs lived. Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this an ideal and fun introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts. It is an ideal text for Key Stage 2 history and helps achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14.
