From bone to pick with you to elbow grease to stick your neck out
I especially appreciated the final page that included the historical background on a few of the idioms. While it would be nice to have that for every saying in the book, I'm sure they would be easy to find.
This is another awesome kids book in her idiom series for kids! I love the adorable illustrations and the sentences (tiny and practically hidden that describe each idiom's meaning in detail) are a great touch to help describe properly the meaning of each phrase :) I can't wait to share this book with my children!
***This series is suitable for all ages but can be read alone at a grade school level if desired though I think it gains a lot by being read to a child (group setting or one on one) or with a child :)
At the end of the book there is a more detailed explanation concerning idioms and examples of the historical background to three of the ones cited elsewhere in the book.
A really great book which I highly recommend!
