Someone recently asked me for ideas for a lesson on similes. I like to use picture books to introduce topics, and I think picture books work well with similes.
I came to Big Universe to see if there might be any possibilities. I did an advanced search for figurative language and got this result: Piggies in the Pumpkin Patch.
I read through the book and found that even though I liked the book, it was not exactly what I was looking for right now. Instead of just closing the book and moving to another resource site, I decided to look at other books by the publisher of this book (you can do that simply by clicking on the name of the publisher ).
As I looked through the long list of books, I started noticing several that I have written about before, read with my daughter, and told other teachers about. Here are a few of the ones that I noticed:
- A Call for a New Alphabet
- A Place for Zero
- Alice and Greta: A Tale of Two Witches
- First Day Jitters
- Multiplying Menace
- Super Sam
- The Patch
