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.

""Most of Russia has long, cold wintersà.Russia has forests, mountains, tundra, and plains."" Random snippets of basic information about the land, animals, and people of Russia are accompanied by small color photographs. Beginning readers will appreciate the simple, repetitive, easy-to-read text, but as a whole the book is dull. Bib., glos., ind. Copyright 2002 Horn Book Guide Reviews

K-Gr 2-Basic facts about the geography of Russia are presented in large print. Only 161 words are used, yet this is a good introduction to the land, animals, and people for this age level. Full-page color photos face each page of print. However, the only picture of children, in addition to the boy on the cover, is of two girls eating. Parents and teachers are warned in a note facing the table of contents that early readers may need assistance with the suggestions for further information. This is certainly true for the Internet sites; they could be used for some additional visuals but not for subject matter. A good addition to school and public libraries.-Elizabeth Talbot, University of Illinois, Champaign Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
