    My Copán Adventure is a beautifully illustrated book that introduces young readers to the lives of the first people to arrive in the Copán valley about 2300 years ago. Readers follow James and his father on their journey through the ruins, with Professor Questor sharing his wealth of knowledge about the Mayáns and their ancient civilization and answering James’s questions along the way.

    This book could be used to supplement school learning or in a homeschooling program. It offers a fun and interesting way to learn more about the Mayáns and their culture. What I found most interesting is the author’s note, which makes mention of some of the hypotheses scientists have formed about the fall of the Copán dynasty. One of the ideas is that the destruction of their forests by overbuilding and depleting their natural resources had an impact on their survival. This helps young readers to make the connection between ancient times and their modern world.

    This is definitely a book I’m glad to have as part of my daughters’ library.
