I thought this book was wonderful and creative. It's a great way to introduce idoms to children. It really helped me explain to my kids how words or expressions can have double meanings. It's amazing just how many of these we use everyday in the English language! My four and six year old really understand this now having read this cute little book of examples. Also, great job to these children and teachers who were able to publish a book they wrote themselves! ...now that's thinking "outside the box!"

The book consists of thirty pages, each written and illustrated by a student who was in the fourth grade at Newcastle Avenue Elementary School in Reseda, California. The first page along with the back cover profiles the students in three rows along with their teacher, Ms. Lizette Madruga and Ms. Carlyn Taggart. The very last page is a compilation of three photographs showing groups of the children in aprons adorning paintbrushes putting the touches on the book.

Each page has a collage of colors that are smeared, dotted and textured. I was disappointed not to find any mention of how the illustrations took place and the process. It would have been nice to know how the order of the phrases was chosen and how they went about picking the phrases. I feel that would have added to the charm of the book, Who Let The Cat Out Of The Bag? by sharing with the reader the steps taken to make the book.

It does appear that some or maybe all of the illustrations started with pencil drawings. The faces on many of the illustrations are descriptive with a range of emotions showcased. Each page has a square border in a color that coincides with the image. These shades include purple, green, pink, yellow, orange and blue. The phrase is displayed in a font style text above the border. Located below the border at the bottom of each page is the meaning of each sentence in the same black font, each is prefaced with the word meaning.

Many of the students signed their name within their illustration. My son and I spent time looking over each page to find the signature, but some were hard to locate. The styles of the children's illustrations vary from a full colored border to many that have open white space with limited details.

A Kid's Review on October 7, 2006
My third grade teacher in my school in Connecticut read this book to our class. The parts I liked best were the expressions. I liked the first expression "Don't put your foot in your mouth." I also liked the last expression which was "Zip your lip." My teacher read this book during TRA which stands for "Teacher Read Aloud."
