Now that I've made a map and a video about Living Up The Street by Gary Soto, I am noticing that this book is almost is like poetry because of how he points out every single detail of his life to the book.

In the first paragraph of Living Up The Street by Gary Soto writes, "We were terrible kids I think." By the end of the chapter "Being Mean," you can see that what he means. On page seven, he says, "I threw a rock at two hanging from the wires, and they laughed that I missed. The other kids laughed. Their mother, with a baby in her arms, came out to the back porch, laughed, and told us to behave ourselves.

The video I made shows Gary Soto going back to his father's grave and remembering how unfeeling he wa as a child about his father's death.

I’d love to know what you think of my video.
