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 2006 February)

Gr 5-7 -These titles introduce women who helped shape the nation. While they focus on the individuals, they occasionally oversimplify information. For example, Williams states that when Mason traveled with the Mormons and came across Native Americans, "The encounters were usually pleasant, and Mormon Trail diaries tell of friendly trading.…" The successes of the lone individual are often emphasized and pinpointed as a moment that started to influence all of history. In Warren , the woman’s brother is given credit for planting "the seed of patriotism in America" and beginning the fight for freedom when he openly opposed British rule in the courtroom. Terms are not well defined within the texts or do not appear in the glossary. The time lines of each woman’s life are attached to a chronology of world events at the end of the book. The juxtaposition of Mason moving to California in 1851 with postage stamps being widely used in 1852 fails to elicit a connection. The only electronic link mentioned is FactHound, which "will find the best Web sites for you." While it lists eight sites for each book, they aren’t necessarily "the best" and don’t empower readers to locate information on their own.-Kelly Czarnecki, Bloomington Public Library, IL
