The scene that has been displayed in the painting or drawing shows and describes the color reds significance in The Giver. Which was the first-time Jonas “sees beyond” is when he notices an apple change in the form of changing color and starting to see specifically the color red. In Chapter 3 of The Giver, Jonas has unthinkingly picked up an apple from the snack basket and thrown it to his friend Asher in the recreation yard, who casually tosses it back to Jonas. However, on one toss, Jonas notices something odd about the apple: it changes, Jonas begins to see color. It personally was extremely important and significant to show this scene in color because in this exact moment Jonas is exposed to a new aspect of a new world that he will continue to discover and experience. Seeing color inspires Jonas, it also creates a sense of curiosity inside of him that there is so much more to the world, community, and life then he knows and what he's been taught.
The Giver Hero’s Journey "A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself." Joseph Campbell. Jonas from Lois Lowry’s The Giver makes that example true by making the choice to fight against the community. While his journey might differ slightly from what is considered an orthodox Hero’s Journey, he still has a journey consisting of steps and goals.
The Giver, by Lois Lowry. The Giver is about a boy living in a community with his family and friends with sameness being chosen in that community. Sameness is when everyone in one community are all the same, you don 't really get much freedom. Most things are chosen for you, like clothes, food, jobs/assignments, and even your family that you live with. When Jonas is chosen by the committee of elders to be the next receiver of memories (a receiver is someone who "receives" memories from unknown places and keeps them from getting to the community) , the old receiver shows him many memories about life, some calming and others painful.

There are many similarities and differences between the “Back Roads” by Vinnie Rotondaro and “A Winter’s Drive” by ReadWorks.

A person’s inability to see is often taken for granted as it is in “Cathedral” by Raymond Carver (1981). The title suggests the story is about an actual cathedral, however, it is about two men who are blind, one physically and one figuratively. One of the men is Robert, the physically blind man, a friend of the narrator’s wife; the other is the narrator himself, the figuratively blind man. Carver displays the development of the naïve narrator throughout the story through narration, a moment of epiphany, and symbolism. Carver uses first-person narration to tell the story of “Cathedral”.
