“children and english language learners will be grinning from ear-to-ear as they make their way through this engaging set of books about idioms!

Readers are not only introduced to a variety of idiomatic expressions, but through helpful examples and beautiful illustrations, they also learn how to correctly use each of the phrases in their everyday lives.

as a teacher of 21 years, i can honestly say, it is difficult to teach idioms to kids of all ages, regardless of their native language. these books are a teacher's dream come true! not only are the linked resources and audio super helpful, but the bright, eye-catching colors and diverse set of cultures and people represented in this series, make it a #1 pick for teachers everywhere. Thank you for helping me reach more students and for making my lessons more enjoyable!
