Topic: Great Read Alouds: Stories You Won't Want to Miss
Children often wonder why someone "gets in a pickle," or "has cold feet." In trademark folk art style, Will Moses sheds some light on these wonderful sayings. A book that is especially worthwhile for children who are learning the language as well as those who are fascinated with interesting sayings. For example, "Feeling Blue means: Feeling sad. Just thinking about six more weeks of winter had poor old Ben and his cat and dog - and mouse - feeling blue."
