Parentisms - real or myth?

Don't Touch That Toad and Other Strange Things Adults Tell You
by Catherine Rondina
illustrated by Kevin Sylvester

Parents often offer advice, hints, and warnings to keep their kids safe. But sometimes these parentisms don't make any sense. This book takes a look at some common parental expressions and tells you whether they're true or not. So if you've ever heard that too much sugar makes you hyper, that humans only use ten percent of their brains, or that ostriches bury their heads in the sand, this is the book to read!
