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 photo-essays, a grandmother shares stories of her childhood with her grandchildren and teaches them about her cultural and family traditions. Each book in this series includes a recipe and an activity. Although several of the photos are blurred and the different type sizes are confusing, the books offer a personalized past and present look at these cultures.

Gr 1-3-Morris describes the routines of three families, emphasizing how the grandmothers and grandchildren interact with one another. In the course of the narratives, some information about the women's personal histories emerge. Each story is fairly interesting and, while there is a pattern to the series, each title presents some aspects of the culture and family values that it depicts. An activity is included-most often a recipe-and suggestions of other ways for children to find out about their family history. Bright, colorful photographs, some by Linenthal and others provided by the families, accompany the clearly written prose. A sentence or two on each page is printed in large, colored bold type, and the rest of the text is in a smaller font. It is not apparent why these particular passages have been highlighted, since they neither contain the most significant bits of information, nor are they particularly relevant to the illustration on the page. The final page presents a "family tree" with photographs of the participants in the story and other relatives. While not essential additions to most collections, this series is nevertheless a nice vehicle through which children can be introduced to family stories.-Linda Greengrass, Bank Street College Library, New York City Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
