Grandma, and another Grandma. My dad is funny.. and my mom is serious and happy sometimes. My mom is a serious mom. My Dad is
a clownish silly funky dad. I am silly too. I want to tell something: This book is very good and it uses household items to describe the faces.
But wait! There's more.
The book teaches about similes in a fast but memorable way. The book isn't long and it doesn't belabor the point, but your kids will not forget how to construct similes.
Enjoy this one with your kids! They will probably want to make portraits after they read it!)
