Where the Mountain Meets the Moon-Fig. Language

If you are looking for a book that uses similes and metaphors than you need to read "Where the Mountain Meets the Moon."  It is one of my new anchor texts this year.    The chapter book is loaded with rich figurative language that allows the children to use many strategies for comprehension.

  3. Thanks for the recommendation, Kelly! This looks like a great choice for teaching figurative language. I just one-clicked on Amazon so that I can add the book to my library.
