Nonfiction Monday

Nonfiction Monday is hosted today by Booktalking.

For Nonfiction Monday --  "Hold your horses!" (and other peculiar sayings) written by Cynthia Amoroso and illustrated by Mernie Gallagher-Cole.

Hold Your Horses is one of four titles by Amoroso that include I'm All Thumbs, It's a Long Shot and That's the Last Straw.  Each title explores idiomatic English sayings by explaining their meaning, using them in context, and providing readers with an entertaining introduction the peculiarities of English language. 
Gallagher-Cole's cartoon-style illustrations make literal use of the phrases under discussion which provides readers with ample opportunities to smile while helping to clarify word usage.
