My students will love this book! They’re always looking for clever sayings especially the 2nd-4th graders that I sub for. As a teacher, I try to insert some interesting news or fun stories that I have heard into my day when I am teaching, so that when they leave for the day they have something to share with their parents/guardians. I remember asking my own children what they had learned at the end of the day of the school day and frequently hearing “nothing,” if I can give the students just something for them to remember at the end of the day, I feel that have been successful. This book is something fun and educational, that I think the students will remember. To add an idiom or two to their vocabulary would be terrific. I realize that they might have heard some of these idioms before but I don’t think they have heard all of their meanings or how to use them. This book could be reread as the students learn different idioms, review what they know or learn more facts about the idioms they know. The illustrations are fun and colorful and show the idiom is a comical way. The idiom is written in big bold lettering across the page so this makes a great picture book. If you turn the book upside down, in smaller print on each page, the idiom is explained and it is used in a sentence. My favorites were barking up the wrong tree, a wild goose chase, hogwash and let the cat out of the bag. What a great resource.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
