Question:

Thinking About the Text

The author describes the things that Valli sees from an eight-year-old’s point of view. Can you find evidence from the text for this statement?

Answer:

Yes, for example when the author says, she was fascinated by the bus and watching the bus filled with a new set of people every time was a source of unending joy for her. When the author gives the description of the bus, he stresses on the color and looks of the new bus like silver because a child is attracted to color. The seats were soft and luxurious. The description that the author gives when Valli looks outside the bus is also typical of an eight-year-old. The blue sky and acres and acres of greenfield, show the enthusiasm of a child. A cow running in front of the bus fascinated Valli. On the other hand, the sight of a dead cow made her cry and she did not look outside the window on her return journey. This also accurately describes the behavior of an eight-year-old child.
