Reading Corner: There's a Frog in My Throat!

There's a Frog in My Throat! 440 Animal Sayings A Little Bird Told Me by Loreen Leedy and by Pat Street (2003)

"Hot dog! Pat Street and Loreen Leedy have gone hog-wild with this imaginative and amusing collection of sayings about animals. From lucky ducks to odd ducks to sitting ducks to just plain quacks, this compilation presents a wealth of sayings alongside fun-filled art bursting with color and energy. Each expression is explained, so no reader feels like a silly goose" (from the front inside jacket).

Illustrating hundreds of commonly-used sayings, this inventive picture book would make an excellent addition to any classroom collection. Fun for everyone, this book could be an especially helpful resource for English-language-learning (ELL) students.
