    James and the Giant Peach is filled with idioms like:

    "All in the same boat"
    "Pulling my leg"
    "Flood of Tears"
    "Work Like Mad"
    "White as a Sheet"

    Discuss what idioms are and the meaning of the ones found in the story. Have students draw and color a picture to represent the literal meaning of the idiom. Then display them on a bulletin board or have the students share them with the class.
