While reading House On Mango Street. i learned that just because you may not live in the best neighborhood you can always find the good in everything. For instence in the chapter The Monkey Garden, we find out that just because this is a junk year the children still find it a place to go and play and have fun. They make it there own play gorund. i did not really see any weaknesses, but i saw alot of strengths in Cisneros writing. i really liked how she described everything and how when you would read you would be able to visibly see what she is talking about in her stories. I also like how her stories are short but yet they are still so deep, and you can get all the information within just a few sentences. My favorite storie would have to be Hairs, i liked this chapter because i like how she used how all there hair looked to describe her family and who they are as a person."My Papa's hair is like a broom, all up in the air". I liked this quote because it says that her papa does not always have the time to brush his hair so sometimes its thick and sticks straight up.
