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.

The series title implies that these are craft books, but they are actually more about encouraging readers to recycle. Suggestions for reusing materials are included but without specific directions for making the "treasures" shown in the photos. A final project is described in a bit more detail. Each volume includes much boilerplate text. Websites. Glos., ind. [Review covers these From Trash to Treasures titles: Buttons and Beads, Cardboard, and Jars and Pots/]

These books explain that there are many different ways people live and learn. The texts, though repetitive and bland, are effective in their use of simple vocabulary and sentence structures. Clear photographs showing both able-bodied and disabled people engaged in the title activities remind readers to respect the special qualities of everyone. Glos., ind.

K-Gr 2—Beginning readers will be inspired by the many examples of creative reuse in this well-produced series. Each book presents several ideas (button pictures, paper-bag puppets) that don't require detailed step-by-step instructions, and one slightly more complicated craft that does (yogurt-cup animals, juice-box boat). A diverse cast of children demonstrates the steps and models completed projects. Conversational, supportive text encourages readers to experiment with materials. Finished projects are not too perfect-looking, helping to manage expectations.
