Life Is a Bowl Full of Cherries

Life is a Bowl Full of Cherries - Vanita Oelschlager, Robin Hegan

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review. No other consideration was offered, expected or received.


I have really enjoyed Vanita Oelschlager's books. The first one that I read was her first idiom book, Birds of a Feather. It was a lot of fun and had some great artistry. I love idioms and find them so much fun to use with children, so when I saw that this one was available as well - a book on food idioms - I grabbed it up. To make the book even better, Robin Hegan has added in some cute and funny illustrations to go with each one.


The kids laughed and laughed at this one and had a lot of fun trying to figure out what was really meant by them. They also took time to try to draw their own pictures for some of the other idioms we discussed.


A great teaching aid for young children.
