The best place to find a list of similes in "To Kill a Mockingbird" is on one of the many literary analysis and educational sites available online, such as StudyMode and ENotes. One simile in the book comes when Scout makes a comparison between the ladies of the town and soft baked goods covered with powder and perspiration.

In Scout's early description of her town, she says that "ladies bathed before noon, after their three o'clock naps, and by nightfall were like soft teacakes with frostings of sweat and sweet talcum."

Harper Lee's novel is filled with figurative language, and so, "To Kill a Mockingbird" is an excellent novel for teachers wanting to help their students learn how to use similes and metaphors in their own writing.
