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.

Gr 6–8—Through short sentences and brief paragraphs, this terrific series focuses on the challenge of meeting people's basic needs for food, water, shelter, sanitation, education, and health care in developed and developing countries. Population Growth includes discussions of family planning and contraceptives; Preventing Disease explains the risks of smoking and includes a photo of lungs with cancer; alcohol and drug abuse are also mentioned. Glossary words appear in bold type, and a word bank runs along the bottom of pages. Well-chosen color photographs and illustrations with informative captions appear on every page, and numerous sidebars emphasize research strategies, problem solving, and thought-provoking questions. These books are excellent resources for students, offering constructive lessons on how to think critically.
