Book Project – 5 Paragraph Essay

“Sometimes we have to make the best of things and watch the way we conduct ourselves when the chips are down.” (Page # 139) That’s one of my favorite quotes said by Atticus, because it’s a motivating quote in To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. To Kill A Mockingbird shows that people can be kind, moral, and brave.

First of all, I’m going tell you how the characters in To Kill A Mockingbird showed kindness. Boo Radley, Atticus, and Jem displayed the characteristic of being kind. Also, during the fire, Boo Radley snuck up behind scout and draped a blanket over her, showing that he was kind and also cared for her. Atticus showed kindness by defending Tom Robinson, because everybody was unfair to him and accused him of a crime he didn’t do.

Second of all, I’m going to tell you how the characters in this book showed morality. Morality is doing what’s right and what you know is right. He said, “Scout, I couldn’t go to church and worship God if I didn’t try to help that man.” (Page # 139) Atticus knows what’s right and defends Tom Robinson.

And lastly, I’m going to tell you how Boo Radley, Atticus, and Jem showed bravery. Atticus was brave because he stood up for Tom Robinson. It takes a lot to stand up for something almost everybody else is against but Atticus did it anyway.

Overall, what comes from kindness and morality is respectability, which Atticus, Boo Radley, Scout, and Jem show. The kids learn to respect Atticus and Boo Radley more through their actions. You gain morality braveness and kindness. All these characters prove themselves as these qualities and I think it’s a great book.
