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.

Cub Reporter "interviews" Sacagawea about her life and the Lewis and Clark expedition. Sacagawea responds to simplistic questions in her own hokey "voice" ("Captain Lewis said that if I hadn't done this, the trip could've been ruined!"). Cartoons of a microphone-holding bear cub alternate with captioned photos and illustrations that extend information. The premise may work for reluctant readers. Reading list, timeline, websites. Glos., ind.
Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2015 November)

Gr 1–3—Covering major figures in U.S. history, these titles present content in an interview format. The subjects are questioned by Cub Reporter, a cartoon bear journalist, which sometimes leads to unusual or odd responses (for instance, Abraham Lincoln saying, "I was killed by a man named John Wilkes Booth."). The tone is conversational and readable, if less useful for informational purposes. The level of detail ranges from extremely specific (Harriet Tubman's father taught her which berries to eat for survival) to bafflingly imprecise (Helen Keller's "illness hurt my eyes and my ears"). A simple layout incorporates historical photographs, painted illustrations, and, occasionally, stock images. VERDICT Though these are serviceable introductions to important historical figures, their value for research is limited.
