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.

These straightforward books provide basic introductions to all seven continents. Maps and photographs of varying quality highlight climate, geographical features, and famous sites. The Spanish translations, though generally accurate, do include mistakes (e.g., Lagos certainly isn't "[cf2]la ciudad mas poblada del mundo[cf1]"). Short reference lists include at least one Spanish resource. Reading list. Glos., ind.

The slight, somewhat choppy text gives an introduction to Antarctica, touching on geography, climate, landscape, animals, and people, and discussing scientific research and explorers. Clear, well-captioned photographs and maps support the text. "Fast facts" tell about the continent's highest mountains and other interesting tidbits ("The coldest temperature ever recorded was at Vostock Research Station...It was -128.6 degrees"). Reading list. Glos., ind. Copyright 2007 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

A few choppy sentences, captioning a clear photo or map on each page, provide a list of facts about these continents' weather, geography, animals, and people. The subjects are too broad for such slight text, leading to some unfortunate generalizations (from Europe: ""In the north, people herd reindeer""). The series format excludes Oceania, which isn't technically a continent. Bib., glos., ind. Copyright 2001 Horn Book Guide Reviews
