What I loved: The book does a great job of teaching about similes and could be a useful tool in the classroom to talk about similes with plenty of examples. The focus is definitely on these rather than a storyline, and the illustrations help to support each statement. The drawings are also really lovely with targeted use of color and a dreamlike quality.
What left me wanting more: The plot of the book is pretty thin and some of the similes seem a little forced, but this does do a great job of giving lots of examples, so this also has some positives.
Final verdict: LIKE BEST FRIENDS is a great tool for teaching similes with lovely illustrations and a very simple plot.
