Similes are a type of figurative language.

A simile compares two seemingly different things using the words “like” or “as.”

Priscilla Cummings uses similes throughout Red Kayak to make comparisons:

  • “Suddenly Ben’s little face broke into my mind, scattering all those memories like ice chips” (p. 135).

Here’s another example from Red Kayak:

  • “Up ahead the train, like a snake, was making a gradual right turn…” (p. 132).
  • Why do authors use similes?

Follow these steps to create similes of your own:

Find an object in your narrative you want to describe using a simile

Write down an adjective or two to describe that object

Think of another object that could be described the same way

Write a sentence using like or as to compare those the objects
