Reviews

Gr 4-6-Ever wonder where the phrase "goody two-shoes" comes from or why we say we're "all pooped out" when we feel tired? This series explores the usage and origin of dozens of well-known and less-familiar idioms. Typically, a spread is devoted to information about each expression. First, the idioms are used in a mini-story context and then elaborated on for meaning. Photographs and cartoon illustrations help further explain the phrases. The pages are well designed, and the texts are lively. Since many of the idioms have mathematical, historical, or scientific connections, this series may be used across curriculums, with plenty of opportunities for writing activities. While further reading is suggested, source notes are not included, making follow-up difficult. (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
