    12. This is a very nicely illustrated children s book that introduces kids to the world of idioms The English language is chock full see what I did there of these creative expressions and this book is an excellent beginner s manual The pictures are really fun and quirky, and the explanations do a pretty good job of making the idioms clear to children.If I had a criticism, it would be that I would much prefer the explanations of the idioms to be right side up instead of small print and upside down I [...]
