This series by Denise Brennan-Nelson focuses on common maxims, idioms, proverbs, and cliches. Each double page spread includes a rhyme, a detailed painting depicting a literal interpretation of the phrase and a short description of its origins. My Teacher Likes to Say is the title most fitting for classroom use, as it features phrases often spoken by elementary teachers (ie: ants in your pants, great minds think alike, etc).
While not our favorites from this list, the books in this series are kinda fun.
