PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Providing a comprehensive history of the Incan empire, this original book on the Incas is perfect for any elementary or middle-school classroom, as well as any high school classrooms with struggling readers.

This book is also available in Spanish, making it appropriate for bilingual and ELL/emergent bilingual classrooms as well.

The book features a beautiful array of high-resolution, full-page, real-life images. Additionally, there are no more than 4-5 sentences on each page. This style accommodates older learners or ELL students who would otherwise be overwhelmed with text-heavy pages found in books meant for students their age.
