This book erroneously states that metaphor and idiom are the same. They are NOT the same!! They are two separate parts of figurative language. I bought this book to teach my 4th graders a lesson on metaphor, but I simply cannot use the book because it presents false information. I am horrified the book even made it into publication. Shame on the authors for making such a gross error. If you want to teach a lesson on idiom, then this is a great book, but it does not even come close to correctly presenting metaphor. Such a shame!
