I know how excited you are too come to America. You wish to live the “American dream” like everyone else here. But let me tell you, it is not what you think it is.

  • Tolerance And Prejudice In To Kill A Mockingbird

    “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover!” Since we were old enough to read books, my teachers have preached this mantra to my classes. They would tell us that it is what is on the inside that matters, not just the cover.

Overall, I felt that these sections were more laid out for adults to buy books for their children than for children to come…
