This was a fun read and the book was what it said it was.
I enjoyed finding out about our lamguage.
We have this in our dining room and read one of the explanations at dinner. The kids enjoy reading the origins of phrases and they often spark interesting conversations.Published on January 23, 2014 by Geoff Turner
