Following in the footsteps of My Momma Likes to Say comes the charming My Grandma Likes to Say. Thousands of proverbs and idioms can be found in the English language. Derived from many different sources, these expressions are a wonderful link to history and culture, and can be an instructive tool in language education. "That's a horse of a different color My grandma likes to say. I'm not sure what she means But I like it anyway. Polka dots and stripes. Yellow, orange, and blue. What color would a horse be If it were up to YOU?" Original paintings conceived from a child's point of view provide a hilarious visual interpretation of those sayings oft-quoted by the 'senior' members of our families.Denise Brennan-Nelson also wrote Someday Is Not a Day of the Week, winner of an IRA Children's Choice award. Atireless promoter and enthusiastic speaker, Denise visits countless schools and educational conferences each year, and runs a motivational speaking program through her company Goosebumps. She lives with her family in Howell, Michigan. In addition to the "Likes to Say" books, Jane Monroe Donovan has illustrated three other titles for Sleeping Bear Press, including the bookseller holiday favorite Winter's Gift and the recently released Black Beauty's Early Days in the Meadow. Jane lives in Pinckney, Michigan.

My mother was from a small island in the Chesapeake Bay. These colorful expressions used to describe everyday occurrences were a large part of her vernacular. They became embedded in my conversations and acquired by our daughter. Her son has been exposed to these comparisons, so he knows what we mean when we express them. He thoroughly enjoys the illustrations, and humor. Our entire family has found this book entertaining. A good friend had discovered this book and recommended it.

I was raised on Itioms, and I am in the habit of using them too in daily speech, my grandson , age three, love this book....just like Granny talks!

Such a cute book for a grandmother to give to her grandchild.

This is a darling book for phrases "Grandma" uses. The 4-10 year olds will enjoy it.

Great Idioms

I purchased this book to use with students to teach figurative language. It's not quite what I expected but I am enjoying using it and the; illustrations are great.

This was ordered as a gift. The person that I ordered it for really seemed to like getting it as a gift.

A present for a very close teacher, deemed excellent, I know.
