Loreen Leedy and Pat Street have collected a delightful menagerie of animal-related expressions for readers to enjoy. This best-selling book’s 48 pages are jammed with common expressions (eager beaver) as well as less familiar ones (mouse potato.) You’ll be amazed at how often these sayings appear in daily speech, from “His bark is worse than his bite,” to “Get your ducks in a row,” to “Something smells fishy.” Look below to get “bird’s eye view” of the book. Great for English language learners!
