    An analogy is a comparison between two things. It points out the similarities between two things that might be different in all other respects. Analogies cause us to think analytically about forms, uses, structures, and relationships.

    This all-time favorite resource not only gives students a chance to practice solving analogies, but also invites them to open their minds to a completely new way of analyzing the elements of analogies. Each page introduces several categories of analogies. Each category expands students' way of viewing the world and contrasting and comparing elements. Thinking Through Analogies also instills the tools whereby students can create relationships to enhance their creative and formal writing, as well as to heighten their critical thinking in test taking.

    Other books that teach analogies are Analogies for Beginners and Analogies for the 21st Century.
