Robert Peck from A Day No Pigs Would Die had to do many different chores and tasks because they need to be completed. The book expresses an important theme, doing what needs to be done, and today this theme still fits in with kids doing their chores around their parents’ house, helping their Grandparents, as well as other tasks. Robert’s Father was always doing things that needed done whether he liked doing them or not (Peck, 1977). The introduction states that Rob accompanied his father Haven, around their ranch by completing his chores and many other tasks (Peck, 1977).

However, the dream of returning faded away as the years passed, and like many displaced Palestinians, the only thing that remained of his identity is “proclaimed in a sheaf of old
Like every Anzac Day, the area around Gallipoli experiences a heavy battering from the masses of tourists making their pilgrimage to pay their respects to their ancestors.
