This is the chapter where something unusual happens. There is snow in Maycomb. When this happens, Scout and Jem, understandably are excited and they begin to make a snowman. As they do, the snowman begins to look like Mr. Avery, a neighbor that the children are not very fond of. When Atticus comes home, he orders Jem to disguise the snowman, because the children are mocking Mr. Avery. In other words, they have broken the golden rule. Here is what Atticus says:“I don’t care what you do, so long as you do something,” said Atticus. “You can’t go around making caricatures of the neighbors.”“Ain’t a characterture,” said Jem. “It looks just like him.” “Mr. Avery might not think so.”What makes this contrast even starker is that Boo Radley shows great kindness and thoughtfulness to Scout. When Ms. Maudie’s house burns down and the people are watching during the cold night, Boo comes by and places a blanket around Scout. This is an example of fulfilling the golden rule.
