Finding common characteristics with the characters of American Dragons

Discussion
Feb 22, 2009

Recently I read  pages 65 - 95 in American Dragons, edited by Laurence Yep, and I was sort of confused because I really don't understand what poems are trying to tell you.  I mean I can see what they are trying to tell but I don't fully understand it.

One line from this part of the book that stands out for me is: "'Unicorns don't even exist. not in my eyes' said Dana/" I thought this is a strong statement because she is saying that she isn't a little girl anymore, that she is an adult now.

Another line that I found amusing was: "...remembering not to always try to correct her mother's broken English" This stood out for me because something I get the same thought when my dad talks to me in English.

I am  looking forward to reading the rest of this book because i may have some common characteristics with characters.
