Wonderful and Educational Read

I read this book for the first time for pleasure as an 8th grader knowing that I would be reading for school the following year because even as a child I had heard such great thigs about the book. The book really helped to open my 13 year old eyes to racism and the reprecussions. It was great to read it a second time in school because I was able to explore the book at greater length. I would definitely recommend this book whether you are a teenager or an adult.

read it again for the first time

The first time I started reading To Kill a Mockingbird, I was in 2nd or 3rd grade. My sister was in high school, and the copy I picked up might have been something she was assigned for all I know. My main memory from that time was looking up a word I didn't know and remaining confused after reading the definition. I'm not sure I finished reading it, but I know I saw the movie somewhere along the line and was VERY scared during the Halloween night scene. I still have distinct memories of Scout talking to Boo (i hear that voice in my head whenever I think of the scene, and as I read it in the book).

The teacher that my boys have all had for 5th & 6th grade uses this book as a read-aloud. My oldest son had to read this again in 9th grade. And this year, the youngest one read it as a 5th grader in (an adult-led) book club. After helping him keep on track with some of his weekly readings, I decided to read it again myself - and began to wonder if I'd ever really read the entire book! Perhaps I gave up back in the 3rd grade and only saw the movie. Jem reading to Mrs Dubose, Scout serving cookies to the ladies' missionary society social hour - so much I didn't remember.

So now I am left to wonder what is the best time to read the book. How much really sinks in when you are 10 and 11, even with an adult helping you pull out important themes? What do you get from it as a high schooler? [That son is now in 10th grade, and had to do a mock trial for this year's English class. He chose Atticus Finch as their lawyer's name, because 'he's the best lawyer ever' or something along those lines.] Perhaps the best solution is to read it multiple times at many ages, viewing it through the lenses of your own different experiences.

A Great Book!

To Kill A Mockingbird has clearly changed my perspective and the way I look at things and people. I truly think that Harper Lee is an amazing author.

To Kill A Mockingbird

I thought this was an excellent young adult/adult classic. There is a lot of symbolism and deep meaning to this book. I also think there are many helpful life lessons.
