Understanding Mesoamerican Myths

The Myths Understood series puts mythology in the context of the history of the people who created them, and this group of entries covers the myths and stories of cultures that are often ignored in children’s books. The appealing design includes paintings and artwork from old books, as well as photographs of artifacts and places, nicely combining the realistic with the imagined. --Susan Dove Lempke,, 03/13
