Summary: Striking full-page brightly colored illustrations accompany one sentence proverbs such as “a man with a cough cannot conceal himself,” “treat your guest as a guest for two days; on the third give him a hoe,” and “the goat is not big in a cow town.” Each page could be framed and put on the wall as be gorgeous art!
Uses: Proverbs lesson plans. Ask students to name the proverbs they know such as “don’t count your chickens before they hatch” then add this book to the lesson plan and see how many new ones they can learn!
Awards: We discussed this one in class, but I cannot find any mention of awards. The author has won the 2009 Laura Ingalls Wilder Award
