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.

These books explain basic economic concepts, from allowance to bank accounts, occasionally offering practical advice. Kid-friendly titles on money ([cf2]Dinero[cf1]) and allowance ([cf2]Tu dinero[cf1]) are perhaps better suited for the audience than the volumes on banks and credit cards. The texts are generally smoothly translated. Some of the well-captioned photographs look dated. Glos., ind.

Young readers curious about how money works will learn much from this series, in which complex topics such as how interest accumulates are described plainly and concisely. Though some of the photographs look dated, the information is not: e.g., "Some customers bank online." Reading list. Glos., ind.

Gr 1–3—Banks shows how people keep their money safe; Credit Cards explains that people have the option of buying now and paying later; and Money explores the development of coins and paper currency and looks at the ways people earn wages and are paid. Illustrated with sharp, clear photographs, each spread presents a different concept in a logical procession. The author uses simple sentences, highlighting important words that are defined in the glossaries. Even when the same concept, such as the difference in wants and needs, is addressed in two books, the explanation and pictures are different. A chart showing where money goes follows a five-dollar bill as it travels from person to person and place to place. Photographs of checks, deposit and withdrawal slips, and bank statements show how adults keep track of their finances. These well-designed, contemporary volumes are right on the money for young readers.—Mary Jean Smith, Southside Elementary School, Lebanon, TN
