Low Price Guarantee
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.

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2003 August)
Gr 3-5-Each of these easy-to-read titles introduces a state; describes its land, climate, and types of wildlife; gives a brief history; outlines the government and politics; acquaints readers with basic economy and resources; and touches on the people and culture. Also included are two maps, one showing major cities and the other showing land features; a recipe; the state flag and seal; an almanac of facts; and a listing of places to write and visit. Clear, full-color or black-and-white captioned photographs are abundant, as are sidebars and quotes from famous residents. There is enough information in these books for report writers. Although the maps aren't particularly detailed, the information on state governments is solid. The "Hello U.S.A." series (Lerner) has better maps, including a product map, and covers land, history, people and economy, and the environment, and has excellent factual end matter. The "From Sea to Shining Sea" series (Children's) has more substance and may appeal to readers at the higher end of this age grouping. The "Checkerboard Geography" series (ABDO) is much simpler and appropriate for those at the lower end of this age bracket.-Kathleen Simonetta, Indian Trails Public Library District, Wheeling, IL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
