Eye to Eye: A Book of Body Part Idioms and Silly Pictures

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.

Glory's best friend, Julia, was interested in him first, and if it weren't for Julia's deteriorating home life, Glory wouldn't have had a chance to get Gabriel to herself. But does he count as a real boyfriend if his overbearing guardian forbids even kissing? Soon Gabriel is pushing Glory to show her work at art events, and the new relationship starts taking Glory away from her bff just when Julia needs her. Glory is in for a startling revelation when she discovers not only Gabriel&#…

Emerald City Review & Author Interview + Giveaway!

I received this book via Netgalley.  I had been drawn to the phrase on it's cover: "They say it's darkest just before dawn".  That phrase reflects a big deal of emotion. I couldn't wait to read this book. Later, the opportunity to be part of this blog tour presented and here is my review for this book by author Alicia K. Leppert.
