A simile is a literary device used by authors and poets to spark the reader’s imagination. It refers to the practice of comparing two objects based on things they have in common and using the words ‘like’ or ‘as’ in the comparison statement.

This teaching resource would be a wonderful addition to a lesson or unit on literary devices or poetry.
