Kids @ the Crossroads: Aztec is one of Annick Press Series that looks at the so-called ancient history of the Americas from the perspective of a twelve-year old youth writing about his daily routine in blog-format. The boy writes about the daily events in his family's life. Training to be a priest, the youth is expelled and moves on to soldier training. The plot line is basic but the information windows in the text provide bits of detail about Aztec culture, history, language, art, and food. This is a unique approach to providing information to elementary students about long ago peoples of the Americas.
