Why is it a sin to kill a mockingbird? Mockingbirds do nothing to harm anyone, all they do is make music and sing their hearts out for people to enjoy!
What does Atticus do that surprises the children and makes them feel proud? He kills the mad dog (rabies) with a single shot between the eyes.
How can you characterize Attitus at this point in the book? He likes to help people and is courageous. He knows that some of the townspeople do not agree with him defending Tom Robinson, but he does because he wants to help out. He is civilized in his heart.
