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 books in this series provide readers with some basic facts on the land, climate, wildlife, history and government, economy, people, and cultures of each country included. Subdivided chapters chunk the text and make information retrieval easier; additional features include ""Fast Facts,"" color photos, maps, timelines, and recipes. Written in a straightforward style, these volumes, although dry, will be useful to report writers. Bib., glos., ind.

Gr 3-6-This is a useful, visually attractive overview. The information is complete and generally accurate. Don Nardo's France (Children's, 2000) is still the standard for this audience, but Knoell's book is an acceptable (though far less comprehensive) alternative. Captioned, full-color photos appear on every other page, and there are three maps.-Ann W. Moore, Schenectady County Public Library, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
