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.

Swinburne's crisp, clear photographs show children with favorite shoes, without shoes, and with seasonal specials (e.g., flip-flops). He then turns his attention to special shoes for special jobs, first presenting a photograph of shoes; posing the question "Whose shoes?"; and, with a page turn, providing the answer and a full image of the worker. The book begs for interaction between reader and listener. Copyright 2010 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

The old adage, "take children from what they know to what they don't know," is certainly reinforced by Swinburne's concept book that, like its audience of youngsters three feet tall, keeps its eyes close to the ground: on shoes. Crisp, clear photographs show children with favorite shoes; without shoes; and with seasonal specials, such as flip-flops for summer and boots for winter. Swinburne then turns his attention to special shoes for special jobs, first presenting youngsters with a photograph of shoes (such as ballet slippers); posing the question "Whose shoes?"; and, with a page turn, providing the answer and a full image of the worker. The jobs are mixed, ranging from soldier to clown; visual context clues in the initial photograph (such as a postal worker's mailbag or a soccer player's ball) provide additional help in identifying the appropriate occupations. The book begs for interaction between reader and listener, even skipping grammatical conventions -- the answer to "Whose shoes?" is the nominal "a ballerina" rather than the possessive "a ballerina's" -- to comply with the point-and-name responses typical of this age group.
