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.

K-Gr 3—A focused look at morality and emotional growth through retellings of Aesop's fables. Each title begins with the same brief introduction to Aesop and his tales. A quick synopsis of the fable then follows, instructing readers to "look for the lesson" in the text. Each title is illustrated by a different artist and varies widely in style. In the Milkmaid and Her Pail, the young protagonist has brown skin; otherwise, most of the human characters in the other books are white. Each text is set to a musical score (located in the back, along with a link to download the music). Guided reading activities round out each title. VERDICT A new way to introduce old friends to young readers, along with the morals that end each story. Consider for schools and larger public library settings.
