Nonfiction Monday

For Nonfiction Monday  --  "I'm all thumbs! (and other odd things we say)" written by Cynthia Amoroso with illustrations by Mernie Gallagher-Cole.


Amoroso leads the reader through about thirty of the common idioms and figures of speech commonly in use: I'm all thumbs, the big cheese, at the drop of a hat, no sweat, and off the wall to name a few. She provides an example of how the idiom is used and explains the meaning while Gallagher-Cole ups the entertainment factor with literal illustrations of the phrases.

This would be a handy reference for English language learners -- both children and adults.
