Eye to Eye: A book of body part idioms and silly pictures

Title: Eye to Eye: A book of body part idioms and silly pictures

Author: Vanita Oelschlager

Genre: Children's

Rating: 5 out of 5 fairies

Synopsis: Eye to Eye shows children the magic of idioms words that separately have one meaning, but together take on something entirely different. Children are curious about words, especially phrases that make them laugh (Stick Your Neck Out) or sound silly (All Ears). Eye to Eye uses outlandish illustrations of what the words describe literally. The reader then has to guess the real meaning of the phrases (which are at the bottom corner of the spread). At the end of the book, the reader is invited to learn more about these figures of speech.

Review: Another great book explaining common idioms used in everyday life, presented in a way that kids can understand easily. The pictures are fun literal interpretations of the idioms. Once again I can't recommend this book enough, and I can't wait to see the other books the author has published.

Where to buy: Amazon
