Killing a mockingbird is all about prejudice and the many different forms it comes in. In the novel, it’s expressed through a seemingly innocent and harmful act of the children’s perceptions of Boo Radley, as well as in an ugly form like that of the false accusation and ultimate death of Tom Robinson.

The children’s father Atticus, tries to make the children more compassionate and tries to get them to see things from the other person’s point of view before judging them, (Atticus, Chapter 3: ‘You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view .
When Nathan Radley fills in the tree hole that Boo left gifts for the kids in, Jem cries because he realizes how important that was to Boo. Later in the story, Scout wants to kill a roly-poly bug, but Jem stops her, “Why couldn’t I mash him?” I asked. “Because they don’t bother you” Jem answered (Lee, 320).
