Simile Self-Portrait

by Makayla (age 10)

My eyes are as big as a grape and like the

color of a milk chocolate chip.

My nose is as speckled as paint splattered

across the canvas and as round as a plump oval.

My smile is as big as the moon and as bright

as two suns.

My muscles are as quick as a race horse and

as strong as a strong baby monkey.
