Strong as a Bear

Strong as a Bear is a book of similes. From ‘free as a bird’ to ‘shy as a deer’, ‘wild as a tiger’ to ‘chatty as a cockatoo’ this book is filled with fun similes. The illustrations are beautifully simple but effective and clearly show the meaning of each simile.

I am always amazed at how quickly children learn. Georgie took one look at mum and described her as ‘red as a lobster’ and herself as ‘hungry as a wolf’. If only all literacy lessons were that easy.

Strong as a Bear was written by Katrin Stangl and published by Enchanted Lion Books.
