To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee [Had in our library]
It was inevitable at some point that this would be on the bedtime reading list of my daughter, who goes by the nickname Scout. I had thought that she would read it on her own at a somewhat older age, but when she gets an objective into her head, she doesn’t often let go.
And so we embarked upon this well told, but at times uncomfortable, story. There were many, many times when she stopped the book and demanded clarification, far more than any other book we’ve read… why would someone act like that? That’s really how people lived? How could those people make that decision? What’s a chiffarobe? The world of Maycomb County is very foreign to a 10 year old girl in 2016, though she did find the connection through her counterpart the main character.
I don’t know if she was really ready, but I know she can always pick up the book again and revisit it.
I know I do, from time to time, and it’s always a new thing.
