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.

In these small square books, a few simple, declarative sentences on the right-hand page provide very basic facts about the human body. The opposite page has a color photo of a child or a drawing of muscles, bones, organs, etc. Some photos have the drawing superimposed on the child, producing a more unsettling effect than intended.

K-Gr 2-Large type and full-page color illustrations accompany short, simple texts that introduce and explain the different body systems. These slim titles are designed to support national science standards and the texts introduce subject-specific words that are defined in the glossaries. Illustrations feature photographs of ethnically diverse smiling children, and all except Muscular contain a few uncluttered diagrams with boxed legends or labels that will assist youngsters in grasping the concepts and identifying the parts of the system under consideration. Each volume is small enough for little hands to hold. Although these utilitarian, unimaginative books lack the visual appeal of such volumes as Seymour Simon's Muscles (Morrow, 1998), they may be helpful to newly independent readers ready to move beyond the science "Rookie Reader" series (Children's).-Dona J.
