Good resource
Tori Texer
No beating around the bush, this book is an excellent resource and teacher support for the classroom. The information provides the history of the idiom and offers suggestions for classroom discussion points. The format is user-friendly and is a piece of cake to use. Every elementary and middle school reading and language arts teachers should have this book. It's a shoo-in.
