Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lisette Baez
Do idioms confuse you? What do all those silly little sayings really mean? This book helps it all make sense. This is a great tool for educators to use when introducing and reinforcing the concept of idioms. Children will enjoy the silly sayings and will be intrigued as they learn the true meaning. The zany pictures and photographs capture the true essence of each idiom. This is part of a series about expressions people commonly use. This book focuses on food-related expressions. Figure out what it really means to be "in a pickle" or to "take the cake." The book is neatly organized with a brief introduction and a visually attractive layout for each idiom, as well as a glossary and an index. The author also provides a "Further Reading" section and a list of educational resources to accompany the book which can be found at their website. Young and old readers alike will smile as they devour the book. Reviewer: Lisette Baez
