THE FIRST BOOK OF MEXICO

In the pattern of First Books on foreign countries and places, this starts off with the description of a typical family, the Suarez, who live in Mexico City. Activities are centered around young Juan and we get a taste of his life as he watches his mechanic father at work in his garage, goes to school from his modern looking house, eats enchliladas, talks to his friends and so forth. A family visit to Aztec ruins are a point of departure for an account of Mexico's history from Mayan times to the Mexican Revolution and at the last, another visit Juan makes to the country gives us a glimpse of market day, celebrations, farming, etc. Quite nice.
