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.

Gr 3–6—Covering a broad spectrum of topics, these bright and well-designed volumes are impressive both in terms of content and presentation. All the titles are logically organized, and the writing style is relaxed and lively. Clear color photographs and well-labeled diagrams appear on every page and complement the texts nicely. Colorful boxes offering additional interesting facts ("Ancient scholars, called alchemists, believed they could change metals into gold or produce other amazing results.") appear throughout the texts, and important words are highlighted in bold font and defined in the glossaries. All the books conclude with a "Show What You Know" quiz, which asks questions such as, "What characteristics are common for organisms in the Kingdom Plantae?" These titles will be useful for report writers and classroom instruction, but should attract their share of browsers as well.

Gr 5–7—These seven titles offer highly appealing science content aimed for elementary and middle school students. The books cover topics in the natural sciences, biology, chemistry, physics, and the scientific method with easy to understand examples. Illustrated with eye-catching, colorful photographs, maps, and information diagrams, the series makes science concepts tangible for intermediate readers. The structure and formatting of the books also have curricular appeal. Keyword vocabulary is clearly bolded and defined in the glossary section. Moreover, each volume contains a group of comprehension questions and suggestions for activities related to the content. Purchased as a set, this series makes a good fit for public libraries with Spanish-reading children. Spanish-speaking parents would also find the books ideal for reading with their children, as would teachers in bilingual classrooms.—Lettycia Terrones, California State University, Pollak Library, Fullerton , CA
