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.

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2005 March)
Gr 3-6-January examines the office of the president and its constitutional duties, and the individuals who have served as chief executive and commander in chief and their different interpretations of their roles. Congress details the activities of the House of Representatives and the Senate and also describes how legislation becomes law. Of special interest is the section on how citizens can become involved in the process. Next, LeVert offers an explanation of the role of the Electoral College, including a detailed discussion of the 2000 election. Full-color and black-and-white photos, reproductions, and appropriate sidebars enhance the texts. All three books are serviceable teaching tools and useful fodder for reports.-Pamela K.
