Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures would make an excellent choice for Pembroke Elementary School’s Little Free Library because it teaches multiple heroic lessons, includes the lovable animal character Ulysses as an important role, and is written by a popular author. Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures teaches children many heroic lessons that can inspire and help them throughout their everyday lives, making it a great choice for the Little Free Library. Although Flora forms a strong bond of friendship with William Spiver, her neighbor, she thinks that he is odd and consequently annoying, shown by how he often makes statements such as, "Do you know, for instance, that the universe is expanding as we speak?" (DiCamillo, 45). This can teach children not to judge others until they have taken the time to get to know each other, which represents the heroic trait of acceptance.
Though parents treat their children differently according to their genders, the constant characteristic that is sought after and admired in a child is filial piety regardless of parental treatment. In this paper I will discuss the difference in the way that male and female offspring are treated, but how despite these differences the one commonality, or shared virtue that is sought after is filial piety. Males in this memoir are praised for their scholarship, position but mostly their gender itself. The men in this story such as prince Sado and his father King Yongjo, are praised by Lady Hyegyong for their smarts and development. Lady Hyegyong

Joshua Jacobs English 1 PAP- First Period 20 October 2017 Mr. Palkovics Scout’s Little Lesson Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. Empathy has many benefits including stronger connections with other people, it is therapeutic and it builds trust in your relationships.

In the novel To Kill A Mockingbird, Harper Lee shows us how Atticus Finch is a true role model. Atticus stands up for the the right. He respects everyone in Maycomb regardless of who they are.

Comparable to most children 's stories, Kipling strives to portray the central message that good unfailingly prevails when competing against evil. Tamara Fernando refers to “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi” in the Criticism portion of Short Stories for Students as, “a straightforward tale in which the game hero and villains are clearly defined and good triumphs over evil” (Fernando 265). The themes of courage and loyalty intertwine to explicate the thesis. The author utilizes the two essential traits of Rikki, courage and loyalty, to emphasize his morally intact nature that enables his appointing as the story’s hero. Kipling commences the story by describing Rikki Tikki’s revival after an English family rescues him.

Atticus was a father figure, and a defense attorney, he was a trustworthy man and kept his word. Calpurnia a mother-like figure was Jem and Scout’s housemaid. She treated the children as if they were her own.
One of Anne Frank’s most published quotes is, “In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.” This quote reveals that young people can be naive and optimistic about human beings. This is ironic considering the Holocaust, in general, and Anne’s fate. However, even though crimes against humanity still exist today, Anne Frank was right because people come together in times of crisis, people try to stay positive in bad situations, and people are caring and loving to their family. To begin with, people come together and help others in times of crisis is one of the many reasons people are good at heart. For example, in “The Diary of Anne Frank Play,” Mr. Dussel states, “I haven’t adjusted myself to others.
