It's a story about a very feisty little girl who loves to chase the chickens on their farm. It's chock full of some really great similes-so that's usually how I introduce them.
Because the illustrations are in a collage format, after reading the story the kids made a self-portrait collage and then wrote a sentence with a simile to describe themselves. I think some of them came out really cute!
I'm as fast as a cheetah.
I am as good and sweet as a butterfly.
I am good like a cherry.
I am smart as a Smartboard! :)
I am as smart as a giraffe.
I am as good as an angel.
I'm as quiet as a giraffe.
I am as loud as a pencil sharpener.
