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.

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2008 November)

Gr 3-6–Offering simple texts and dramatic action-filled photos, these books aim for a wide audience, but fall short. Their emphasis is on the rudimentary facts of clothing and equipment, simple skills, and competition ("Kung fu fighters wear special pants and a jacket"). The information is vague, muddled, and particularly weak when explaining each sport's origins. Speculation on the history of Kung fu, for example, takes three spreads, and uses language such as "Some people then believe…." The "Martial Arts for Kids" series (Tuttle), written at a higher reading level, offers better introductions.
