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 Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2011 Spring)
Lift-the-flap vertical half pages encourage readers to uncover the answers to basic (if random) questions about the ocean and various types of marine animals (e.g., "Which animals have tusks like an elephant and whiskers like a cat?"). The somewhat scattered text detracts from the visual appeal of the carefully detailed nature illustrations. Ind. Copyright 2011 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

K-Gr 2—Each title has seven sections, including "On a construction site" (Things That Go) and "Rocky islands " (Seashore). The distinctive "flip the flap" component, a half page inserted within each spread, has three numbered questions on one side and simple answers on the reverse. The large-print text is well laid out and sustains interest and enthusiasm. For example, in Seashore, two sentences about salty swamps introduce readers to the different animals that inhabit the ecosystem, followed by the questions and answers. Beautiful, detailed illustrations resemble color photographs. Clearly written and well-organized, these informative books set the scene for further exploration.—Krista Welz, North Bergen Public Library, NJ
