Have you wondered how some of the sayings we use today originated? Phrases such as: apple of one's eye, don't count your chickens ..., don't let the bedbugs bite, goose bumps, nest egg, put through the mill, rule of thumb, too many irons in the fire, etc. Written for children, but adults will enjoy reading about phrases they've used not knowing the origin.
