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.

PreS-Gr 1—These simple texts are complemented with large and bright photographs on every page. Each title includes questions that are explored throughout, such as: "What are fruits?" or "How do vegetables help us?" A "test" or "search" game is appended to encourage children to look at a photo and answer a question. For example, in La carne, a photograph depicts a dinner plate with sliced chicken, sliced baby potatoes, a salad, a small bowl of fruit, and a glass of juice. The question is "Can you find the meat?" An illustrated glossary for Spanish learners and an index with notes for parents and teachers are appended. Solid purchases for schools and libraries needing easy-to-read nonfiction.—Angélica Sauceda, Anaheim Public Library, CA

PreS-Gr 1—Reducing nutrition to the most basic of elements, each volume presents a food group in no more than two sentences per page, printed on white space below color photographs and illustrating healthy foods being enjoyed by a multicultural array of people. The vocabulary and sentence structure are ideal for beginning readers but the frequent oversimplification of concepts (e.g., "Milk is a drink that is made by some animals") pushes these books from being scientifically informative to an experience resembling a phonics lesson. The publishers acknowledge that the books' best use is as part of a more extensive nutrition curriculum: tips to parents and teachers are included in each title, as well as a picture glossary (again, very simple) and a quiz based on the text.
