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.

K-Gr 2—Like the "Green Earth Discovery Library" series (Rourke), these titles introduce simple green-living choices along with science basics. They discuss the harm people have done to the environment and how by implementing eco-friendly changes readers can help save the Earth. The brief, age-appropriate texts deliver excellent information about science concepts, such as the water cycle and ecosystems. Other topics covered include pollution, global warming, organic gardening, water as a resource, endangered and extinct species, habitats, invasive plants, carbon footprints, and living green. Images of pristine landscapes contrast with those of nature blighted by trash and pollution. The close-up shots of wildlife in their natural habitats are especially eye-catching. Recommended for the outstanding photographs and interesting fact-filled text.[Page 29]. (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
