You're Toast and Other Metaphors We Adore

by Nancy Loewen
Illustrated by Donald Wu

Here's a BRIGHT IDEA: read this book. It's a PIECE OF CAKE. And trust us; no one will call you A TURKEY. For more metaphors, look inside.

Reviews

Reading Today Online - Karen Hildebrand, Ohio Library and Reading Consultant

"Sprinkled throughout the story the author has embedded metaphors of all kinds. Speech bubbles and fact boxes give explanations and a bit of history about metaphors. Another in the series recommended for teachers to use as a read aloud for students to hear metaphors in everyday language." - Reading Today Online
