Description

Life is a Bowl Full of Cherries show children the magic of idioms - words that separately have one meaning, but together take on something entirely different.
Children are curious about words, especially phrases that make them laugh ("Couch potato!"), sound silly ("Eat your words") or trigger images that tickle a child's sense of the absurd ("Pie in the sky").
Life is a Bowl Full of Cherries uses outlandish illustrations of what the words describe literally. The reader then has to guess the "real" meaning of the phrases (which is upside down in the corner of each spread). At the end of the book, the reader is invited to learn more about these figures of speech.
Our first book of idioms, Birds of a Feather (2009), dealt with birds, insects or animals. Life is a Bowl Full of Cherries uses food idioms. Both are fun - and instructive!
