The "quote" is about Scout talking about the plot of this book that she asked Atticus to read for her, and I think the book just ends in a truly magnificent way like this. I basically breezed through this book in a few days. Although Go Set a Watchman was kind of disappointing... Well, I better quit rambling.

P.S. This is my last quote on To Kill a Mockingbird! I hope to post about the quotes from other books when I get the chance.

Atticus was right. One time he said you never really know a person until you stand in his shoes and walk around in them. Just standing on the Radley porch was enough. - Scout

Well, this is the part that I couldn't all type on my previous post. It's also interesting to see Scout's reaction to it and the way she mentions shooting a mockingbird.

The quote (if I can call this that) continues on to the next page.

I tried typing the rest of it, but then posted the photo of the next page.

Strange that Miss Gates, a school teacher, seems ok with the persecution that's been going on in her country for a very long time while she feels sorry for the Jewish people who are being persecuted under Hitler...

This is when Jem talks to Scout about there being four kinds of folks in Maycomb County, and when Scout tells him about her opinion. The part I liked is basically from "Naw, Jem, I think there's just one kind of folks. Folks." to the end of this page, ending with "it's because he WANTS to stay inside."

Basically, two quotes on one page. One begins with "There's something in our world that makes men lose their heads..." and the other begins with "The one place where a man ought to get a square deal..."

"Well I'm gonna be a new kind of clown. I'm gonna stand in the middle of the ring and laugh at the folks." - Dill

(I had to put this additional line by Dill separately because it appears on the next page.)

This is when Jem gets something special from Mrs. Dubose, and the quote that I wasn't able to type word for word because of lack of space, which begins from "I wanted tou to see something about her." I wonder if I should upload a photo of the quote from now on instead? Anyway, I recently read To Kill a Mockingbird for the second time and it was as good as the first time.

“I wanted you to see something about her - I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.“ - Atticus

There are three sentences of Atticus' that follow after this, but apparently the whole thing is too long to post at once. Oh, well.

“Don't fret, Jem. Things are never as bad as they seem.“ - Miss Maudie Atkinson

“as I waited I thought, Atticus Finch won't win, he can't win, but he's the only man in these parts who can keep a jury out so long in a case like that. And I thought to myself, well, we're making a step - it's just a baby-step, but it's a step.“ - Miss Maudie Atkinson

Do I need to keep this book on my shelf? I read it in 1995, thought it was a fine book and duly shelved it, but I'm unlikely (I think) to read it again, and if I do, I can get it from the library.
The concept of releasing my books into the wild isn't entirely foreign to me, but I still struggle to balance my desire to keep books with my need for shelf space.

Emilymdxn I‘m always pro letting them go myself. It‘s so personal for each reader I like knowing that the resources that went into making that book and the knowledge inside it can go and serve someone else maybe someone who couldnt afford a new book. Plus to kill a mockingbird is such a classic it‘s hopefully always going to be easy to get your hands on a copy if you need it again! 6d

My favorite thing about this book is the way you don't know the characters and you know they're not real but also they are so real because even though it might not be the exact same names it very well is a true story to many people at the time period.

Obviously everyone knows how good this book is but I will say it again. When I reread this it was just as good as the first time because you forget the little details but just remember the bigger plot and it's just so good. The character development is amazing and just over all the pinnacle of writing.

I had to read this story in high school, and it was just as hard to swallow the second time reading it. The story uses uncomfortable language and uncomfortable situations, but those things genuinely happened to minorities and it's important that we try to understand. I think this is a necessary pick for an older classroom, but it's far too heavy for an early childhood setting.

review

Pickpick

This historical nonfiction novel is a great story with a not so happy ending. This story is set in the 30's. This is the story of a black man who is accused of a crime by an unreliable family. This just shows what the times were like then, and how we aren't so far away from those same ideals now. Stories like these are important because even though they are heavy topics, it's important for children to understand how the world actually works.

quote
hungrybird

"Simply because we were licked a hundred years before we started is no reason for us not to try to win." - Atticus

"Try fighting with your head for a change... it's a good one, even if it does resist learning." - Atticus

quote
hungrybird

"First of all," he said, "if you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you'll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view -"
"Sir?"
"- until you climb into his skin and walk around in it." - Atticus

Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing. - Scout

The book doesn't need my praise as it is praised enough already! But what I would say is, I liked the character of Atticus Finch. The way he has brought up his kids, and have instilled the goodness in them is fab. A beautiful story and beautifully portrayed. Seemed like everything was taking place before me and I had gone back in history and witnessed stuffs. Gave us a chance to peak in the society of a earlier century.

#gratefulreads here's a classic I haven't read yet even though I've owned a copy for years.... Think it is because it isn't a nice quality paperback so may investigate the audio with an audible credit 👍

Wow! Five bright stars for To Kill a Mockingbird.

Yes I have been living under a rock since I have never read or been exposed to this classic novel.

This is the story of the very likable Scout, whose white father is about to stand up for a black man accused of rape. The tale of the loss of innocence, the battle of standing up for what is right even when no one stands beside you... just awesome.

I loved this book, and i recommend it to anyone.

InBooksILive One of my absolute favorites ❤ 4w

Harper Lee's outstanding HF novel, To Kill A Mockingbird, won the Pulitzer Prize and is a great IR for your 6-8th grade classrooms. Join Scout Finch and her family as they explore their town of Maycomb, Alabama in the 1930's. Scout's Dad, Atticus, is an attorney and takes on an African American man, Tom Robinson's, rape case. Join Scout on her journey of observing this heart-breaking case. #UCFLAE3414F19

Camrynm The EL strategy I would use would be 44: Focus on thinking skills; predict, categorize, classify, observe and report (oral-written-
pictorial), sequence, summarize. This strategy would work great for a long novel like this. The UDL principle I would use would be 2.1: Clarify vocabulary and symbols. The vocabulary in this book can be confusing for 6th graders, so going over the vocabulary words would be very beneficial.

#StoryBookSunday - so.. I know super unpopular opinion here but... I mean it was okay. I kinda see how it is taught in schools but I think there are other books out there that would be more entertaining for the youth ...

Somehow I‘d made it through high school without reading this which is how I‘m only reading it now at 31. It was good! Took me a while to finish just because I‘ve had so much going on the last month, so that made it harder. I did really enjoy it though - the characters were great and the writing was superb

Sweet mother of Jesus. It happened to me again, for the second time in 24 hours!!! I ordered the book on the left (this time from a seller on Abe Books), and got the cover on the right. 😭

Seeing as how I scrolled through PAGES of this title in order to select a specific cover, and purposely did not order any of the scores of cheaper listings featuring the cover on the right, I‘m seriously annoyed. 🤬
