The "New True Books" have been produced to fill a very important need. Children are by nature inquisitive and these fact-filled books provide answers to many basic questions.

Students use the New True Books for supplementary work in their classes. They use them to find out about special things that interest them. They read them to learn on their own. Packed with information, each fascinating book encourages children to study independently.

The "New True Books" are effective. Each book is richly illustrated with full-color photographs and art, selected to support the text. A large, easy-to-read typeface is used. Each title contains a table of contents, a glossary, and a complete index.

The "New True Book" series was prepared under the direction of the late Illa Podendorf, formerly with the Laboratory School, University of Chicago.

Remember, children will always have questions, so let the "New True Books" help them find the answers.
