About the Book

Improve your English vocabulary and understanding with a quick, fun lesson in idioms. Idioms: Body—Thumbs Up teaches common and colorful phrases that include parts of the body: the head, the nose, the neck, and more.

Many colorful English idioms use parts of the body, from head (heads up) to toe (toe the line). In fact, head to toe is an idiom meaning “over the entire body,” as in She was dressed in white, from head to toe.

What does it mean if you lose your head? Are you walking around with nothing on your shoulders? What if you poke your nose into someone’s business? Does this mean you have a large nose?

Learn some of these colorful phrases in Idioms: Body—Thumbs Up, and other Quick Target e-books.
