This review is from: Scholastic Dictionary of Idioms (Paperback)
I had been trying to find a book of idioms that listed the ones commonly used by Americans. Some other books just overwhelm you with thousands of idioms that nobody ever uses anymore. When I received this book, I was pleasantly surprised; I knew approximately 90% of the idioms. This is so much more practical to use in my class. Plus, I like the explanations of their origins, although I sometimes question its accuracy. Either way, it's a fun and useful book to use. Very user friendly.
