Based on my observation: Akeliah Binger has a shy, yet tenacious personality. Akeliah is not an explicit child, however, she speaks when it is required of her. She has the ability to understand simple instructions given in English but sometimes have to be prompted in order to comply. She does not display a willingness to learn new concepts, perhaps this is owing to her shyness; she struggles with this area and requires attention. She appears to be disoriented in certain situations that require her to learn something new, an example of this was ,the group practicing the song ‘I am a promise’ for the final day concert and Akeliah seemed more confused than majority of her peers, and had difficulty singing the song.
Katie and Francie maintain a loving relationship throughout the novel, despite the slight neglect that Francie receives.

Her mother claimed that she did not find purpose in doing so, because she knew Francie would find a way to go back to school no matter the circumstances. This is significant to the novel because her mother’s response reflects the self-motivation that has always lived within

A win-win situation!” (Page 1, column 1, line 7-10) maybe she wants to get rid of her nervousness or perhaps she just wants a bond with the audience before talking more serious.
