Tikal by Elizabeth Mann*

The Center of the Maya World
Through descriptive narrative, Ms. Mann takes the reader on an adventure to experience the Mayan culture in the city of Tikal.
Readers learn about the Mayan's daily life, the religious beliefs, their warring tendencies, their building projects and ponder with Ms. Mann why the people left this city rather abruptly.
Beautiful illustrations spreading over two pages.  A cool fold-out that depicts Tikal's center city, less than a square mile.
*Highly recommend.
-Borrowed from the library.
