Growing up we 've read picture books that have introduced us to literature, wildly funny characters and taught us how to use our imagination.

In the short fiction story “The Monkey Garden” by Sandra Cisneros, the author uses deep, rich figurative language to effect the exotic setting. “There were sunflowers, big as flowers on Mars and thick cockscombs bleeding the deep red fringe of theater curtain” (Cisneros 1).

The garden is a place of childhood innocence and shows that although Esperanza wants desperately to grow up, she is still a child.

The purpose of Harlow’s study was to analyze the theory of attachment; the test examines the reasons on babies’ attachment to someone. The purpose of Harlow’s Monkey experiment was also to test the theory of attachment created by Dollar and Miller. Experiencing with monkeys, Harlow proves how the theory was wrong.
