We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

PreS-Gr 1 When Kate receives new skates for her birthday, her younger sister inherits the old pair. Jen moves immediately (and without any practice) from "I do not know how to skate," to getting laced up faster than Kate, and moving onto the ice where she "does not need any help." Kate can't wait to skate, but immediately discovers that the new blades are more difficult to handle than her old ones, and she slips and wobbles. A week later, the girls return to the rink; when a big kid knocks into Jen, Kate goes to her rescue and is aided by a skating star, who agrees to give Kate lessons. Soft watercolors support a text that is so bland that few children will be inspired to keep turning the pages. The story is not credible no one will believe that Jen can skate better than Kate. A second-rate beginning reader. Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, IA Copyright 1998 School Library Journal Reviews
