Overview

Children's Press is pleased to introduce True Books for a new generation!

Completely redesigned for today's young, investigative reader, True Books are an indispensable addition to any library or classroom collection. Each book guides the reader through the facts that nurture their need to know. The new, dynamic True Book design features:
-- an inviting and interactive page format
-- a readable and attractive typeface
-- large, bold, and brilliant full-color photographs

True Books cover a virtually limitless range of topics including geographic landmarks, American Indian cultures, animals, computer science, and sports. And that's just the beginning! Continuing a nearly fifty-year tradition, True Books are authoritative introductions to topics children yearn to explore. Each text is reviewed by leading subject and reading consultants.

The True Books series takes the young reader beyond the standard, fact-filled text by adding avenues for further discovery. Each book includes a variety of sidebars, highlighting extra facts that will fascinate children. In the Important Words section, young readers will find a glossary of words that will both challenge and expand their vocabulary. Each book includes a To Find Out More section, where every curious reader can find a list of related books to read and organizations to contact.

True Books also point readers to the vast electronic universe of information on the Internet. Each book will list:
-- e-mail addresses to help the reader contact individuals and organizations
-- appropriate newsgroups and mailing lists
-- FTP sites to download fun and useful software

Begun in the 1950s, True Books are universally embraced bylibrarians, educators, and readers alike as the definitive nonfiction series for young readers. Now in its third incarnation, the True Books series has once again evolved to meet the needs and tastes of modern readers and educators.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3-5Although these titles are similar to the "New True" books (Children's Press), their format can be distracting. Captions appear in boxes shaded with two colors. A busy double-page spread that places a variety of print styles, colors, and photos against a dark background appears in each book. Families contains an incomplete caption. In a discussion about harvesting wild rice, Foods shows a photograph of a man bending the bunches of rice down into the canoe, whereas the text explains that a man poled the canoe while "a woman bent the bunches down." However, Miller provides a good deal of fascinating information. All three books are meant to be a general discussion of a particular aspect of Native American culture. Since there are so many tribes in North America, the author can highlight only a few. Each title features clear, full-color photographs; a map showing the location of the tribes mentioned within the text; and a page with suggestions for additional resources, including web sites.Suzanne Hawley, Laurel Oak Elementary School, Naples, FL
