This will always be a favorite book of mine. I can relate to growing up poor in the country. I can relate to pulling for the under dog, and how wrong it is to torture/punish someone for not being considered a first-class citizen. I loved how it gently handled the issue of the behavior of a mentally-tortured adult. I am definitely being vague as to not give any spoiler alerts. I really liked the character Atticus, who does his job very well as a lawyer. I remember as a child being puzzled why people would want to be criminal lawyers and support criminals. As an adult, I understand that criminal lawyers represent people, and some of those labeled as law-breakers might actually be innocent. I had the privilege of teaching this book to my GT class. The students were excellent at identifying themes, the meaning behind the title of the book, and life in general with the characters. It is a great teaching tool. It is easier reading than some of the classics. I think that many adults who did not read many books as a child, but would like to go back in time to enjoy the classics would really enjoy this book. I highly recommend it!… (mais)

I first read this delightful book in kindergarten at a time when I felt ostracized by my peers for being quiet and hesitant to join their social circles. It resonated with me then because 'Scout' seemed so relatable and within reach to me. Thirty years later the feeling hasn't diminished. While I have a deeper attachment to the undercurrents of the novel, I still find the characters relatable, realistic and within reach!
