Similes Pack1

simile is a figure of speech that directly compares two different things. The comparison is made using the words “as” or “like.” It adds a spark to writing and makes it more interesting in a reader’s mind.

Let’s take a few examples of similes.


That little girl is so innocent


That little girl is as innocent as an angel.


The kid runs fast.


The kid runs as fast as a deer.


My dad is a wise man.


My dad is wise as an owl.


I am feeling comfortable.


I am as snug as a bug in a rug.

My little brother is very cute.


My little brother is as cute as a kitten.

I know that man well.


I know that man like the back of my hand.

Do you see how the above similes examples add a punch to otherwise normal sentences?
