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.

A brief, friendly description of an occupation introduces a featured person as a possible neighbor. The books' subjects come from a variety of ethnic and cultural groups. The chatty texts, which sometimes lack continuity, convey snippets of engaging information. The large, casual photographs, while not perfectly lit or composed, have a snapshot informality that, for the most part, is successful. Copyright 1998 Horn Book Guide Reviews

PreS-Gr 2?Meet Ms. Davison, the librarian who helps "people learn about the present and the past"; Captain Cruz, who "helps people get to work safely and on time" on the Staten Island Ferry; and the Wilsons, professional house painters who give "people a beautiful place to live." All of these dedicated individuals and their work make an impact on their communities. Through strikingly effective full-color photos and easy-to-read texts, these photo-essays illuminate each occupation. Children will feel they are actually spending the day at work with a friend?watching the librarian find a book in braille for a blind child, looking at the ferry's radar screen and compass as the boat maneuvers past the Statue of Liberty, or helping to choose the right color for the right room. These books explain each job's requirements and help to develop an appreciation of each profession. School and public libraries will want to update occupational sections with these attractive selections.?Patricia Mahoney Brown, Benjamin Franklin Elementary School, Kenmore, NY
