Overview

From the same team that brought you My Momma Likes to Say comes this delightful interpretation of maxims, idioms, proverbs, and clichés many students remember hearing on a regular basis in the classroom. From "Do you have ants in your pants?" to "Stick together!" and "Great minds think alike," readers will be intrigued by the history of these adages, told in poetry form as well as expository text, and amused by the witty illustrations, depicting these sayings as a child might imagine them. Growing up with six sisters and one brother, there has never been a dull moment in Denise Brennan-Nelson's life. She continues to keep the pace lively as a motivational speaker, children's author, and mother. She is the author of My Momma Likes to Say and Buzzy the Bumblebee, also from Sleeping Bear Press. Denise lives with her family in Howell, Michigan. Jane Monroe Donovan's parents encouraged her to follow her heart and it led to her love of sketching and painting. In addition to My Teacher Likes to Say, Jane also illustrated Sunny Numbers: A Florida Counting Book and My Momma Likes to Say. She is currently working on a Christmas title for Sleeping Bear Press. Jane lives with her family in Pinckney, Michigan.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Who hasn't heard the expression "two heads are better than one?" As a child, did you envision a single body with two heads? Did you wonder exactly what that statement meant? This book is a delightful compilation of some common maxims, idioms, proverbs and clichés. The author asked school aged children what statements their teachers liked to repeat and this book is only a small sample of the results. Each figure of speech is repeated in an amusing verse and the wonderful illustrations provide a creative and literal interpretation. For example, "these walls have ears" portrays a wall with three large ears and a young girl with a giant Q-tip. Every page contains a brief explanation of the origin of each saying making this book educational as well as entertaining. It would certainly be a great introduction to idioms of the English language. 2004, Sleeping Bear Press/Gale Group, Ages 5 to 10.
