In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, the mockingbird is referenced multiple times as a thing that should be respected and unharmed, because it is a creature that only serves others by singing its music. They don’t eat peoples gardens, or nest in corncribs, making them one in many of birds that don’t cause grief or any type of annoyance to the people of Maycomb. Mockingbirds are seen by the majority of the characters in the book as innocent creatures. It is wrong to kill them because they don’t hurt anyone. Some of the characters in the book resemble mockingbirds, carrying some of the same statures given to this influential symbol.

Some people believe that books should not be banned from schools because they need to learn what happened. The first reason is that the books can be about our history and they used some words that are know bad. In the book Animal Farm “The three hens who had been ringleaders in the attempted rebellion over the eggs now came forward and stated that snowball had appeared to them in their dreams and incited to disobey napoleon 's orders” (Orwell 84).The book Animal Farm by George Orwell is a good book, but on page 84 the leader of the farm murdered 3 hens because they were rebelling to save their kids.

Birds are not meant to live in a cactus but they're using it for shelter and to be kept safe. Estervansa and Estavn are the birds that are somewhere they shouldn't be so they can keep safe.

For example, some people consider him a hero because Odysseus said,” 3 abreast i tied them silently together, twining cords of the willow from the agres bed then slung a man under each middle one to ride there safely”(Homer 11).

The novel To Kill a Mockingbird, written by Harper Lee explores this idea of judging others before looking at the world from their perspective. Scout and Jem, although raised in a prejudice town, learn from their father Atticus that who a person is racially, does not define them as a person.
