My Teacher Likes to Say
by Denise Brennan-Nelson
From the same team that brought you My Momma Likes to Say comes this delightful interpretation of maxims, idioms, proverbs, and clichés many students remember hearing on a regular basis in the classroom. From "Do you have ants in your pants?" to "Stick together!" and "Great minds think alike," readers will be intrigued by the history of these adages, told in poetry form as well as expository text, and amused by the witty illustrations, depicting these sayings as a child might imagine them. Growing up with six sisters and one brother, there has never been a dull moment in Denise Brennan-Nelson's life. She continues to keep the pace lively as a motivational speaker, children's author, and mother. She is the author of My Momma Likes to Say and Buzzy the Bumblebee, also from Sleeping Bear Press. Denise lives with her family in Howell, Michigan. Jane Monroe Donovan's parents encouraged her to follow her heart and it led to her love of sketching and painting. In addition to My Teacher Likes to Say, Jane also illustrated Sunny Numbers: A Florida Counting Book and My Momma Likes to Say. She is currently working on a Christmas title for Sleeping Bear Press. Jane lives with her family in Pinckney, Michigan.

Author: Denise Brennan-Nelson
Denise Brennan-Nelson is a multi-award winning children’s book author and motivational speaker. She wrote her first children’s book, Buzzy the Bumblebee, after discovering that aeronautically, bumblebees should not be able to fly. She felt it was a wonderful way to inspire people to “bee-lieve” in themselves and their dreams. Other titles include Someday is Not a Day of the Week, a touching story about making time for what is really important in life; and Willow, chosen the Most Outstanding Children’s Book for 2009 by the Executive Committee of the Mom’s Choice Awards. Willow is the story of a little girl who colors outside the lines, thinks outside the box, and ends up awakening the creativity of her by-the-book art teacher. Denise also wrote J is for Jack-O’-Lantern: A Halloween Alphabet.
