Are you teaching similes, metaphors, figurative language, animal sayings, and/or idioms? A popular picture book of mine is Crazy Like a Fox: A Simile Story...after reading the book, this slideshow reviews 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 in this FREE PowerPoint.
