What's Cuauhtémoc About

Publisher Summary

Inspired by the last Aztec Emperor of the old Mexico, this book introduces children to both shapes and their first English and Spanish words. You and your child will explore the city of Tenochtitlan along side Cuauhtémoc —where you’ll come across the circulo in the Aztec calendar, the triangle in the pyramid, the heart in the shield of an Aztec princess, and more!

4.5 / 7.0

This bilingual shapes board book is a great introduction to shapes, Spanish, and Aztec art and architecture. While it’s a simple book, there’s a lot to talk about, so it could easily be tailored to any baby, toddler, or pre-schooler. It’s also fun to notice how some words in English and Spanish look and sound very different and others look and sound almost exactly the same.

Reading contracts all day long. Not bad, but not quite as fun as reading about hobbits.
5.5 / 7.0

This is a fantastic dual language shapes book. The only words on each page are the names of the shape in English and Spanish. The illustrations are beautiful and creative. Each page teaches a shape on the left and then incorporates that shape into a design reminiscent of the ancient Aztec empire and the emperor Cuauhtemoc.
