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.

Gr 4-6 -These books give basic information on significant events or movements in American history. Each opening chapter describes the event or social trend, with subsequent coverage given to background factors and effects. Haymarket Square , for example, addresses the event itself; the rise of unions; the relationship (perceived and actual) among unions, socialism, and anarchism; the movement for an eight-hour work day; protest against police violence; and the trial and sentencing of those accused of inciting the riot. Chapters run from four to eight pages and are heavily illustrated with period reproductions and photos. The leading is good, with ample white space, giving the texts an open, nonthreatening look. The prose is hardly lyrical, but it recounts the events clearly. Adequate for beginning researchers, these short informational treatments may spark sufficient interest to lead to more in-depth studies. Similar to the "Cornerstones of Freedom" series (Children’s Press), the "We the People" volumes can be used to flesh out history collections.-Ann Welton, Grant Elementary School, Tacoma, WA
