Children Playground: Eye to Eye by Vanita Oelschlager

Eye to Eye: A Book of Body Part Idioms and Silly Pictures by Vanita Oelschlager
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have reviewed various books from Vanita Oelschlager. What I love the most about this author is her capacity to develop unique ideas for her books. Today, I am reviewing Eye to Eye.

One of the things that can be challenging in a language is the figurative language. Figurative expressions are unique expressions in a language that are used to explain something. In this book, the author seeks to present some of these expressions in a very simple way for children to understand. I see this book as a useful teaching tool. That is why Eye to Eye is a good addition for classrooms. This book takes a friendly approach to show kids how to interpret figurative language they listen to on a daily life.

They art in this picture book is charming. Robin Egan illustrated this book in a colorful
bright way. Illustrations are playful and funny making the learning experience fun for any kid.
