You should also know these things found in the tree:

  1. two sticks of gum
  2. two pennies
  3. a ball of twine
  4. soap carvings of Scout and Jem
  5. a pack of gum
  6. a spelling bee medal
  7. a pocket watch
  8. a knife

Cement will NOT be a valid answer!

Just for fun, I would remember these things: dialect, situational irony, untrustworthy, 1st person


 

Legos!

So your argument is that no book is worth reading unless it has a legos kit to go with it? Well, then read this book! here are a few lego characters from it:

The first picture is Book and Scout and the other picture is Atticus, of course.

Now, I know some of you have legos at home! If you want to make a lego scene from this book and take a picture of it, send it in and I'll add it here. I'll even give you credit for it if you want it!
