Review: Life is a Bowl Full of Cherries

Life is a Bowl Full of Cherries
Life is a Bowl Full of Cherries by Vanita Oelschlager
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a very nicely illustrated children’s book that introduces kids to the world of idioms. The English language is chock full (see what I did there?) of these creative expressions and this book is an excellent beginner’s “manual”. The pictures are really fun and quirky, and the explanations do a pretty good job of making the idioms clear to children.

If I had a criticism, it would be that I would much prefer the explanations of the idioms to be right side up instead of small print and upside down. I don’t think the explanation would in any way detract from the illustrations.
