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.

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2010 November)

PreS-Gr 1—Written in a question-and-answer pattern, the simple narratives in these volumes are complemented by sets of bright, usually close-up color photos of (mostly) animals in various natural settings. Encouraging audience give-and-take, the questions accompany partial (but easily recognizable) views of each creature, and the answers are placed beneath full images a page-turn away. Each volume ends with a picture glossary that provides further details about the features or creatures depicted and a boilerplate mini-list of web resources. Despite some slip-ups—a graphic of an owl with slit rather than round pupils in Tree and a photo of a cave painting in Cave with no explanation of what it is—these will make good lead-ins to discussions of habitats and ecosystems.
