ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR
Illustrator Paula Tabor (www.paulapaint.com) has won awards of her own in art shows from Florida to Ohio. She's been an illustrator, portraitist, caricaturist - even a balloon twister! She lives in the rural outskirts of Houston, Texas with a beloved, and rather large, Lab-mix named Jasper.


MY THOUGHTS
Ms. Roman is continually adding good children's books that are not only fun to read but have so much to learn from.  Ms. Roman can tell the stories so that the young ones can understand and don't get bored.  She keeps them interested.  It's hard to find good books for children that they have fun reading and yet can learn about new countries, past and present.  All children need to have the opportunity to read these wonderful books and travel to the different countries while using their imagination.   Not only is the story good but the illustrations will attract the child's interest as well.  They are colorful and go along with the story. This book is about the Mayan Empire located in southeastern Mexico  from about 1800 BC to the 1500's.  Ms. Roman researches her information so that what is presented is accurate.    There is so much to learn about the different foods, clothing, their tatts, what they worked at, what they did for fun and oh, so much more.    So if you have a child, grandchild or someone you love, get them a copy of this book and read with them.  Adults can learn about these countries also.

I received this book from the author and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
