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.

This series attempts to explain the concept of America's national symbols. Beginning readers will appreciate the simple vocabulary, though the boilerplate language common to all books is vague and dull ("A symbol is a type of sign. A symbol shows you something"). Clear photographs and reproductions provide visual support. Glos., ind. [Review covers these Patriotic Symbols titles: [cf2]The Capitol Building[cf1], [cf2]The Lincoln Memorial[cf1], [cf2]Mount Rushmore[cf1], [cf2]The National Anthem[cf1], and [cf2]The Washington Monument[cf1].] Copyright 2009 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

These volumes explore the history behind American patriotic symbols and how they are viewed today. Stock color photographs and illustrations on every page provide a visual narrative to supplement the writing. The texts, though adequate in translation, oversimplify the concepts to the point of confusion. Glos., ind.

K-Gr 1–These simple texts are designed for children to read themselves. In making them accessible to beginning readers, however, many concepts are oversimplified, including the introductory premise, "A symbol is a type of sign. A symbol shows you something." Although four of the books are about monuments and buildings, they include few details about design or construction. National Anthem does not discuss the music or include a full listing of the words. Most of the volumes contain excellent large, color photographs, current enough to include figures such as Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama. Lincoln Memorial, however, features several poorly executed period paintings, including one depicting the African-American people (but not Lincoln, who appears in the same picture) with oddly bright lips. On only a slightly higher reading level, the "American Symbols" series (Capstone) addresses many of the same topics in a more compelling and educational manner.[Page 54].
