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.

Each volume introduces idioms in a particular subject (food, school, sports, etc.) before the text uses the phrase in context and explains its definition and origin. A mix of cartoons and stock photos makes for a random layout, but the casual tone and subject matter are kid-friendly; readers will especially enjoy Pooped Out's gross expressions (e.g., "farting around"). Reading list, websites. Glos., ind.

Gr 4–6—Ever wonder where the phrase "goody two-shoes" comes from or why we say we're "all pooped out" when we feel tired? This series explores the usage and origin of dozens of well-known and less-familiar idioms. Typically, a spread is devoted to information about each expression. First, the idioms are used in a mini-story context and then elaborated on for meaning. Photographs and cartoon illustrations help further explain the phrases. The pages are well designed, and the texts are lively. Since many of the idioms have mathematical, historical, or scientific connections, this series may be used across curriculums, with plenty of opportunities for writing activities. While further reading is suggested, source notes are not included, making follow-up difficult.
