We read this book as soon as it was published.
My kids know by heart the previous books in the series and wanted to read this book as well.
We really enjoyed reading them. T
his book - Uncle Riley's Wild Safari teaches idioms about animals and it's illustrated with very beautiful paintings, and written in an entertaining way.
My older child gets really excited to demonstrate what he learnt to his friends and I hear him using these idioms in their conversations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does "monkey business" mean that monkeys have jobs? 2 July 2013
By J. Chambers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When Tia and Tony were having a tough time understanding what idioms are, their mom turned them over to Uncle Riley, who asked for help from his animal friends in the nearby jungle. The animals were some help, but the kids were still searching for a good definition of "idiom." Freddy the Fox had a reputation for being clever, but could he help them with idioms?

An Idioms Game at the back of the book will test kids' knowledge of idioms involving animals, such as "Don't have a cow," "Let sleeping dogs lie," and "Have ants in your pants."

5.0 out of 5 stars Idioms and the way to teach them 1 July 2013
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Drorit Metuki, our sage teacher, is assisted by illustrator Vinil Raj in this continued series of educational fun books for children.

Tia and tony are twin siblings who while doing their homework are confused by phrases called idioms - phrases like `monkey business' - so their mother takes them to their Uncle Riley for a learning safari. There they see monkeys doing silly things and learn the meaning of `monkey business' - (it means of cause some kind of trouble). A bit further into the safari they learn from an elephant the meaning behind `you can't ignore the elephant in the room.' Burt the Bird answers the question of the meaning of `free as a bird'. They also learn the idiom `hungry as a bear' and `have a tiger by the tail'. And the smart Freddie the Fox explains `cracking up',' driving up the wall' and `lost my train of thought'.

By the end of the safari Tia and Tony share with their mother all the idioms they have learned. And at the end of this book Metuki provides a chart of idioms and answers that children have to match - a fine interactive game to solidify the lesson. This is another indispensible book from the creative mind or Drorit Metuki. Grady Harp, July 13

4.0 out of 5 stars A great children's book 7 May 2013
By Kelsey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great! The kids loved it! I think most children enjoy reading story that reminds them about of their own experiences and this book is just like that, it caused the children to remember our safari experience and it was great excitement. At the end of the book they tried to remember other idioms of animals and it became a family pastime. Teaching and enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute and useful 4 May 2013
By talpaz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book illustrates some common idioms in the English language and makes learning about them fun! The pictures are adorable and colorful. The passages are simple enough for a first reader and at the end of the book, the author explains idioms using a quize. This would be a wonderful way to help your child experience a rarely considered part of common speech. I would encourage teachers and parents alike to purchase this book for their children. My kids loved this book and by the end of it, they could actually explain to me what an idiom was. It is amazing what a child will learn when learning is made fun. Creative!
