Are you silly as a goose? Do you laugh like a hyena? Like a monkey? Like a moose? In this introduction to grammar fundamentals, young learners discover the silly world of similes, a figure of speech that compares two things. With laugh-out-loud illustrations and clever, quirky text, this nonfiction picture books young grammarians and the children of language lovers. The Capstone Interactive edition comes with simultaneous access for every student in your school and includes read aloud audio recorded by professional voice over artists.
