Concerning Coincidences
Tuck Everlasting-
Man in yellow suit
Ginger Pye-
Man in a yellow hat
Jerry and Rachel kept Ginger close to their heart just like how these dogs are keeping close to one another
Favorite Character Ginger
- Smart
- Many tricks
- Able to escape independently
- Pick up tricks over kidnapping
- Loyal to owner
- Protects from reflection dog
- Brought Jerry his pencil
The characters mentally learned that love can bond family together
Favorite Part
- Afraid of yellow hat Jerry was carrying
- Licked and wagging tail expressing love for the Pye's
- Did what owner told it to do
- Stayed along side of Jerry after dog napping
I learned that along with cats dogs are very loyal by physically and mentally showing the owner
This image represents loyalty because I would imagine that the dog is on top of the owner looking into their eyes as they woke up.
