Transcript of The Giver - ABC Book

A
Apples
The first time Jonas ever saw the colour red was when he was playing catch with an apple.
Bicycle
Turning Nine and receiving your own bicycle was long-awaited by children of the Community.
B

Ceremony
The annual ceremony was similar to a birthday party. However, unlike a birthday party, where each child was singled out, the ceremonies were in a group and simply marked the passage of time. Ceremonies occur each year until the child turns 12, after which it begins life as an adult.
C
Dictatorship
Members of the Community lived in a society similar to a dictatorship since almost every aspect of their lives was heavily regulated.
D
Elephant
Animals, such as elephants are nonexistent in the Community. Children are given a comfort stuffed animal based on a real life animal of the past until the age of 8. These are believed to be imaginary by most of the Community.
E
Fiona
Jonas had a good friend named Fiona who had distinctive red hair. He eventually developed romantic feelings for her. At her Ceremony of Twelve, she was assigned the role of Caretaker of the Old.
F
Giver
The Giver was a man who was the old Receiver. The previous Receiver-in-Training, Rosemary, was his daughter.
G
Hair
One of the first few times Jonas saw red (after the apple and the faces in the crowd during the ceremony) was in Fiona's hair.

Red
The first colour Jonas ever saw was red.
Twelve
Jonas was Twelve when he became the new Receiver.
Love
Love was nonexistent (as are other feelings) in the Community.
Music
Music comes with hearing-beyond; only the current Giver, previous Receivers and Jonas are known to have such qualities.
Precision of Language
Precision of Language was one of the first few skills taught to children in the Community.
Memories
The Receiver uses memories to learn more about the past and provide advice to the Committee.
Release
Release is a topic not many people know about. When you are released, a syringe is injected into your vein(s), and you die.
Rosemary
Rosemary was the Giver's daughter and the previous Receiver-in-Training before Jonas.
Naming
The Naming of newchildren happens at the Ceremony of One. At this time, newchildren are also given to their family units.
War
War was one of Jonas' worst memories.
Options
There was a lack of options in the Community. Your daily life and future career was picked out for you. Even simple choices, such as what to wear, were nonexistent in the Community.
Questions
Jonas was encouraged to ask questions during his training process.
Snow
Jonas' first memory was of snow. In this memory, he is sledding down a snow-covered hill.
Injection
To be released, there is a special injection that needs to go into the veins.
Jonas
Jonas is a young boy who lives with his mother, father and little sister Lily. At the Ceremony of Twelve, he was chosen to become the next Receiver.
Feelings
Nobody has any feelings in the Community. Only few people such as Jonas and the Giver have any knowledge/experience of feelings.
Killing
Killing in the Community occurs through Release. The Community believes in killing those who commit a crime 3 times. This is a similar concept to the death penalty used in some countries in our society. The Elderly are killed once they reach a certain age. When twins are born, the lighter one of the two also gets killed. Anyone can apply for Release, expect for the Receiver and the Receiver-in-Training. Past Receivers can apply for Release after they have finished training the Receiver who will replace them.
X-Mas
Christmas is the Giver's favourite memory. In this memory, there is a fire, and a family. This is when the concept of Love is properly introduced.
Dwelling
Each member of the community lived in a dwelling. Some people lived alone, others lived with their spouses/family unit.
Opinions
There was also a lack of opinions in the Community. No one had any opinions on things that matter except for those that truly knew what was happening.
December
Nobody knows when they were actually born, only how early or late they were born compared to other newchildren born that year. December is when becoming a year older is typically celebrated.
Uniqueness
Uniqueness was not encouraged in the Community. One would be frowned upon if differed from the rest of the Community in any way.
Visually Impaired
Most members of the Community are visually impaired as they can't see colours. Instead, they see everything in black and white.
Year
Each year until the age of 12, the children of the Community received a gift or earned a privilege/right.
Capacity to See/Hear Beyond
In the story, the Capacity to See/Hear Beyond is the ability to see colour and hear music, both of which are not in the Community.
Asher
Asher is Jonas' best friend. As a young child, he always mixed up his words. He is generally a troublemaker. The assignment he received at his Ceremony of Twelve was Assistant Director of Recreation.
Zipper
Knowing how to zip your zipper showed independence. Before a child receives a coat with front closure(s), he/she had a coat with back closures so that children could help each other and learn interdependence.
Transfer
The Giver transferred memories to Jonas. He transferred memories from many different generations. Some memories were pleasurable, while others were painful.
Gabriel
Gabriel is a newchild in the Community. He had been a very rare case as he had been labeled 'uncertain' and given an additional year to develop before his naming ceremony. However, as Gabriel still needed more time to fully develop, he was scheduled to be released. When Jonas left on his adventure to Elsewhere, he took Gabriel with him so that he would not be released.
Pain
Jonas had never truly experienced pain until he became the new Receiver.
