English - Read this simile poem. A simile is when you compare one thing to another, for example, as bald as an egg; eyes like lightbulbs. The English language is full of well-known similes, for example, as quiet as a mouse. This poem has lots of similes in it. It takes each part of The Pobble’s appearance (head, hair, eyes, body and the way he walks) and compares it to something else.
★ Talk to someone at home about similes. Can you find the ones in the poem?
