He said this to Scout and Jem because mockingbirds give nothing but music for the world to enjoy and it would be cruel and uncalled for to take their life.

They don’t eat up people’s gardens, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird,’”(Lee 119).

In chapter 10 of the book Harper Lee mentions something that is very eye catching which is “it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.
