Is It True? is a delightful collection of children’s humorous poetry that children will want to read over and over. It encourages parents to interact in an enjoyable way with their children, to help them understand the many misunderstandings of common expressions used in our daily language.
The book explores a child’s perception of adult sayings like:
- “Your father’s in the dog house”
- “Lost your marbles”
- “Double jointed”
What makes perfect sense to an adult sounds strange to children. They tend to be literal about what parents say, taking things out of context. As adults, we become desensitized to the exact meaning of subtle sayings we use daily.
Explore these saying with your children. Whether they come up naturally or are discovered in Is It True?, this illustrated book helps you laugh and learn with your children as they grow up.
