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.

A vague mix of historical and contemporary information about Native Americans is paired with related craft projects. The instructions are extremely abbreviated and include some confusing terminology, although clear color photographs and illustrations are helpful. No distinction is made between projects that are modeled after ordinary historical objects and those modeled after sacred objects; [cf2]Plains Indians[cf1] is especially offensive. Ind.

K-Gr 2-This simplistic book adds to the popular publishing fad of combining factual texts with crafts, but there is just not enough substance here to support the effort. The most cursory of introductory information is paired with some easy, and not-so-easy projects. The crafts are presented without letting children know why they might want to make a canoe or a colorful bead necklace. A lot of modeling clay goes into the activities, calling for skills that may be far beyond the age of the readership. The dwelling, maloca, seems to require a lot of coordination in placing the framework for the bark-skin house. Insufficient background about rainforest plants and animals is provided for those who attempt the diorama project. Teachers and students deserve more substantial material about indigenous people.-Jacqueline Elsner, Athens Regional Library, GA
