The only one that comes to mind is Beach is to Fun by Pat Brisson, it's a fun read aloud though it is more about analogies/relationships.

Figurative Language

Not sure if these will help, but a supervisor gave us this list of books by different objectives, and under the figurative language section, these are a few of them:

Abbie Against a Storm, Marcia Vaughan
Amos and Boris, William Steig
Big Bad Bruce, Bill Peet
Caleb and Kate, William Steig
Duke Ellington, Andrea D. Pickney
Feathers and Fools, Mem Fox
Midnight in the Mountains, Julie Lawson
My Grandma Lives in Gooligulch, Graeme Base
Sheep in a Jeep, Nancy Shaw
Some Smug Slug, Pamela D. Edwards
The Magic Fan, Keith Baker
The Z was Zapped, Chris Van Allsburg
Water Dance, Thomas Locker
Wilma Unlimited, Kathleen Krull

Like I said, these are listed under "Figurative Language", so not sure if they will help or not!

similes

When I talk about similes in second grade I usually read the book: As Quick As A Cricket. It's very basic - but might be helpful.

You could read "Crazy like a fox" by Loreen leedy... Also, I do a very fun and interactive project with my students. It's called simile riddles- "Who Am I?" Each student is given a list of words. And I read out clues like I'm as white as vanilla ice cream, I am fluffy as a litter of kittens... and so on... and they will have the word. the word being snow.
