  • Imagery
  • This image represents the story because Doodle's brother made him go to the barn to look at his mahogany colored casket. Doodle said " I am not going to touch it." The casket symbolizes the story because everybody in Doodle's family thought he was going to die. The casket really means something for someone that actually passes away, not for people that others think they are going to pass away.
  • Theme
  • This image represents the story because he is trying to make Doodle to where he can stand on his own. It takes him some time because Doodle started off where he would try to stand but then collapsed. When he finally got Doodle to stand on his own his family was shocked because they thought that their son would never be able to stand or walk. The symbol in this image is the parents because they don't really believe in their son. But then they realized that maybe if you have courage in someone then they might be able to accomplish something that you thought they would never be able to do.
  • Dynamic Character
  • Imagery is when you are reading something and you can visualize it and it uses figurative language. On page 353 it says " after that day Doodle and I often went down into Old Woman Swamp. I would gather wildflowers, wild violets, honeysuckle, yellow jasmine, snake flowers, and water lilies, and with wire grass we'd weave them into necklaces and crowns."
  • Personal Reaction
  • I think the theme of this story is never giving up. I chose this theme because Doodle's family thought that he would never make it and he kept trying to prove them wrong. His brother wanted him to stand up so he helped him and he finally got it to where he could stand on his own. His parents thought that when he was younger he was gonna die so they bought him a little casket.
  • The dynamic character in this story is Doodle's brother because at the beginning of the story he didn't want to help his brother at anything and he was annoyed and disappointed in him. Towards the end of the story he helped him and was disappointed in him anymore because he helped his brother be able to stand on his own.
  • At the end of the story I feel better than what I did at the beginning. At the beginning of the story the brother was disappointed with his brother but then he started to think that if he tried to help him, he would be able to stand and maybe even take a couple of steps.
