Have you ever thought about the values that you yourself hold? Well, if you haven’t I’m going to tell you about two different characters that have similar and different values. The two characters that I will be describing are Arnie, from Born Worker, and Constancia, from Abuela Invents the Zero. The reason that I chose these two characters is because they are similar in some ways but they are also different in some ways. Constancia’s values are that she loves her freedom and how she decides to use thwe freedom that she has to go out with her friends. On the other hand, Arnie has pretty much the same values as Connie. Arnies values are that he values his freedom and he also values being not active and not working. We can see that these two characters have the same values.
If you have read Abuela Invents the Zero, then you would know a little bit about what Constancia's life is like. She lives in New Jersey but is from a place called Pueto Rico. Her life is full of two different cultures and she is just trying to fit in with the friends that she is hanging out with right now and is also trying to cover up her backround of her past life so that her friends don't know how she lived before she move to New Jersey. When her Abuela comes to visit she tries to make plans to try to avoid having to take her Abuela anywhere. " I plan to stay very busy the whole time she's with us so that I won't be asked to take her anywhere..."(P.6 paragraph 4). We can see from this quote that she does not want to take her Abuela anywhere. We can also tell that she is embarrassed to be around her Abuela. One more thing that we can take from this is that she wants to do what she wants to do but her plans get interrupted when her Abuela comes into town and that her mother gets sick, so she has to take her Abuela places.
