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.

Organized in busily designed sections full of photos and titled by accessible questions (""What are crows?"" ""How smart are crows?"" ""What is a roost like?""), this book offers clear, straightforward information about common and rare crows. Covering habits, habitats, lifestyle, and care of young, the book is useful for research and general interest. Reading list. Glos., ind. Copyright 2003 Horn Book Guide Reviews

Gr 3-5-Each book describes its respective animal and talks about how it gathers food, where it lives, and how it establishes its territory. Both discuss the hierarchies or "pecking order" within the groups, how the group nurtures its young, and how certain animals exhibit dominance or submission to others through displays or fighting. The advantages that the group provides for the animals within it are enumerated. Life cycles are also described. Both conclude with a page of additional facts. The large-type books are attractively illustrated with lots of full-color photographs.-Sally Bates Goodroe, formerly at Harris County Public Library, Houston, TX Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
