Author: Anneke Forzani

Why would you roll out the red carpet?
What does it mean to have a green thumb?

Idioms can be confusing, but they help you to understand English and are a lot of fun to learn!

With idiom meanings, example sentences, and clever illustrations depicting scenes and characters from around the world, this multicultural book explains common color idioms in a way that makes them easy to understand. It's a perfect book to teach students in culturally and linguistically diverse classrooms!

The book, part of the Language Lizard Idiom Series, is available as an English-only or bilingual book. Bilingual editions offer the meaning and literal translation of each idiom in a second language to support English language learners.

Children and English language learners will be grinning from ear-to-ear as they make their way through this engaging set of books about idioms! The Language Lizard Idiom Book Series is a multicultural series consisting of four books, each themed by topic: colors, food, nature, and animals. Readers are not only introduced to a variety of idiomatic expressions, but through helpful examples and beautiful illustrations, they also learn how to correctly use each of the phrases in their everyday lives.

As a Teacher of 21 years, I can honestly say, it is difficult to teach idioms to kids of all ages, regardless of their native language. These books are a teacher's dream come true! Not only are the linked resources and audio super helpful, but the bright, eye-catching colors and diverse set of cultures and people represented in this series, make it a #1 pick for teachers everywhere. Thank you for helping me reach more students and for making my lessons more enjoyable!

I highly recommend the Language Lizard Idiom Book Series to teachers, parents, and English-language learners of all ages. From the youngest to the most experienced, readers will have a whale of a time discovering new phrases and expressions, while turning pages with laughter and joy. The books are fun to read, easy to understand, and appropriate for any educational setting. Without hesitation, I rate this series 5 out of 5 stars. They would make a great addition to any home or classroom library, and I'm confident you, too, will feel the same.
