We're rowing Amber on the Mountain this week. Today DD and I were discussing similes for the very first time. I thought it might be over the top of her head, but she got the hang of it and we wrote a few of our own. Then, DD said "I know one!" And she very thoughtfully quoted from Down, Down the Mountain, "Sometimes the road is steep like stairs. Sometimes it is narrow like a hair." We rowed that book a month and a half ago, and didn't even discuss similes when we rowed it.

Way cool :clap:

We read "Amber on the Mountain" yesterday and feel instantly in love with it.
We had checked out the library's copy but I immediately got online and ordered our own copy.
