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.

PreS-K—One animal, wild or domestic, is covered in each book. Two short sentences on the verso of each spread provide clues about noticeable features such as physical characteristics ("I have a curly tail" describes a pig in Grunts); behaviors ("I rub your leg to say hello" hints a Cat in Purrs); and habitat ("I live in a pond," says a frog in Jumps). Each right-hand page has a photo of part of the animal, such as the tail or legs. Children will find the pictures delightful and will be amazed at the close-ups of some body parts such as the hair on the honeybee's leg or the frog's sticky tongue. The books have enough information to figure out the animal in question, but for those who are stuck, the last spread asks, "Who am I?" and reveals the answer. Though these titles provide minimal information, youngsters will enjoy them for pleasure reading.—Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX

Gr 1-3–These emergent-level bilingual titles are excellent introductions to the physical characteristics, behavior, and habitat of animals. Though the topics are serious and sensitive, the bright colors, large type, engaging illustrations, and guessing-game format will appeal to young readers. These early readers are ideal as supplementary material about the animal kingdom or to spark classroom discussions about animal behaviors, life cycle, and habitats.–Eric Gmez, Broward County African-American Research Library, Fort Lauderdale, FL
