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.

Gr 3-5-Each of these titles provides sufficient information for reports. All include basic facts such as the length, source, and outlet of the featured river as well as its tributaries and the major cities along its banks. There is also a brief history, including noted explorers of the region. Finally, the authors describe the important industries relevant to each river, as well as any environmental problems that are currently being experienced. The colorful photographs are appropriately placed and visually appealing. These books are better designed, with larger text, than entries in the "Rivers and Lakes" series (ABDO).-Karen Stuppi, Harmony Elementary School, Middletown, NJ Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
