Birdfoot's Grampa Summary

293 Words2 Pages
The theme of “Birdfoot’s Grampa” is that through life, we learn that all life is of value and worthy of saving. We can see this through the man's wisdom, his personality, and his acts. In “Birdfoot’s Grandpa” the grandpa is pictured as old. This can be seen as being offensive and unnecessary to some people, the story may be using this as a segway to picture a greater subject. Most people would consider old people to be wise. If in this case, the grampa is wiser, he may be showing that through picking up toads in the middle of a storm. We can also see this wisdom in his last quote. As a response to the quote “We have places to go!” he says “so do they.” Either way you take it, the man probably is showing wisdom though his acts and quotes.
