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 2-3Attractive covers and large-print type should draw young readers to these titles. The information will be interesting to those who are not familiar with either park. Vocabulary is appropriate for the subjects, but there is no indication in the texts as to which words appear in the brief glossaries. Many of the color photos in Death Valley are rather dark while several in Bryce Canyon lack reference points to help define size. Captions on most of the photos merely duplicate what has already been stated. Both titles conclude with a brief list of resources that includes books, organizations, and on-line sites.Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS
