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.

K-Gr 2— Photographs appear with text that is so brief that it strains to be clear. Different Places introduces synonyms for various items. Based on where one lives, these items are known by different words, e.g., hot dogs or franks, soda or pop, creek or brook. However, little information is imparted. Photographs are clear and colorful, and they usually relate to the text. The chapter "Time and Place" actually deals with money and where people buy food (supermarket or grocery store), and has nothing to do with time. Two of the titles in the three-book list for further reading are adult; the other is too old for the intended audience. In Meet My Grandparents , children introduce five grandfathers and five grandmothers by relating where they came from, what they call them, and something they like to do together. A spread includes a picture of the adult and child with a few sentences facing an outline map of the grandparent's country of origin, but with no geographical context and none of the bordering countries labeled. A three-word glossary indicates the name for grandparent in the original language. Choices seem odd; "Oma (o MA)" is there but not "Mmukulu" or "Babushka." It defines "Nonno" as the Italian word for grandmother, but in the text it refers to grandfather. Pass on these two.—Margaret R. Tassia, Millersville University, PA
