But if you wanted to be REALLY creative, what could you do to make your picture even better? Before you draw your next family picture, read My Dog is as Smelly as Dirty Socks by Hanokh Piven to give you some really creative ideas. This book will show you a way to draw a picture using similes (comparison-pictures with real objects) to fill in the details.

My Dog is as Smelly as Dirty Socks is a great way to learn how similes can build descriptions into your stories, too.
