In this book, Henry plays and loves his troublemaker dog Ribsy always. But why would a boy play with his dog always and get into trouble too? I believe that it’s because he found Ribsy, lives with Ribsy, and loves Ribsy. Also, Ribsy chooses Henry when the boys have a fair contest about deciding who will take Ribsy. Ribsy had chosen his loving owner, Henry.
Thus, while all the boys on the island are practically doing nothing, Piggy comes up with an idea of making a sundial to keep track of the time and complete essential tasks. Piggy’s glasses represent science, therefore, Piggy has the ability to do the mathematical procedure of making a sundial. But, Ralph struggles to understand the mathematics behind the scientific project. Since the rest of the boys on the island aren’t knowledgeable enough, Piggy fails to bring civilization through making a sundial, and his idea goes unappreciated.Soon after, Jack and Ralph get in an argument and “Jack [smacks] Piggy’s head. Piggy’s glasses [fly] off and [tinkle] on the rocks.”(60) One of the lenses of Piggy’s glasses break leaving Piggy with only one eye.
His master, Bear, helps open him up as well, he teaches Crispin to be independent and to do what he likes. “ Crispin, there’s an old saying: ‘If you have to choose between alertness and worry, being alert will bring you more days of life.’” (132) Bear is telling Crispin to stop worrying about what is going to happen and to start thinking about his own thoughts and what is happening at the moment. Crispin is not used to this so he is reaching about uncomfortably, finding the way meant to. “To my surprise there was a relief in speaking. How strange it was to have someone to listen to me.” (94) Crispin is realizing that it is nice to have someone listening to him for once instead of being a silent being all the time.
Meanwhile, the Radleys never conformed much and so never gained much respect. Maycomb’s entire society is based on the ability that people can comply with their standards.

Even though Children’s literature is mainly directed towards children, it can also apply to teens. The book Unlovable by Dan Yaccarino is a good example of this. Unlovable illustrates how real world connections can be made to teens using a children’s book. The book is about a pug named Alfred that thinks he is unlovable due to some of the neighborhood pets telling him mean things. He then talks to a new dog, Rex, through a fence who quickly becomes his friend.
Napoleon is not interested in this committees and thinks that education for the younger is more important. As Snowball was trying to make all animals work effectively with Animalism and its principles, Napoleon was more concerned in secretly train his dog puppies, that would later enforce everything he wants. Napoleon and Snowball have different interpretations over the Seven Commandments: Napoleon thinks he can alter the commandments according to his will. This situation occurs several times in the novel, one example is when Napoleon alters the Fourth Commandment from “No animal shall sleep in a bed” adding “with sheets” at the end in order to justify his actions. However, Snowball seems to promote a more serious interpretation of the Commandments: he never changed one in order to cover a violation, thus we can say he adopts a
“The Water Hamster, the one who summons water. He was called by the Lord of the Bugzy 's, Squeakpaws, to go defeat the lion. The Water Hamster had gone through some of the same experiences before, so he had empathy for the villagers.” The Water Hamster left his house to go on his quest.
Let’s look at the previous example again about the child assimilating the bear as a dog. In this case, the child will accommodate the new information by having his parent correcting his information. The parent told the child, that this is not a dog, but a bear. The next time the boy goes to the zoo, he points at the bear and said, “That’s a bear.” Accommodation is taking new information and creating a new place for it to better understand the world (110). Jean Piaget’s 4 stages of cognitive theory showcase how children gather information and process it to understand the
Tommy tries to convince Carl to believe in Miss Ferenczi, he is fighting for the idea that if he follows Miss Ferenczi he would be able to use his imagination and people would start to believe him. Miss Ferenczi’s teaching turns Tommy irrespective of other students into a person who wants a society without conformity. When Tommy got back home from school, his mother asks him to finish his chores but he went to look for a word in the dictionary, “Griffin: ‘a fabulous beast with the head and wings of an eagle and the body of a lion” (46). After looking for the word in the dictionary and finding out that Miss Ferenczi is right Tommy feels top of the world, he has
