Independent Publishing Group
A creative and playful approach to idioms invites children to have fun with phrases that can be tricky to understand. Clever, bold illustrations play with the idea that idioms have the power to invoke hilarious images when pictured literally, showing kids examples of what commonly used phrases like monkey business really might look like. Language lessons come across subtly, as over-the-top representations of well-known expressions burst with imagination and inspiration.
