Description

Similes, metaphors, figurative language, animal sayings, and idioms are important for kiddos to learn. A popular picture book of mine is Crazy Like a Fox: A Simile Story. After reading the book, use this slideshow to review the similes in the story. Photographs of the real things referenced by the similes (a herd of elephants and so on) help kids see what the comparison is all about. Each slide asks a question about the book...the answers are in the Speaker’s Notes. •••Please request a copy of the book from your librarian•••

Similes are one type of figurative language referenced in the Common Core State Standards 3.RL.4, 4.L.4, and 5.RL.4.
