In this chapter called Ezperanza Kozol is attending Pineapple in her P.S. 65 class. The teacher is giving a lesson on rice producation but Kozols is distacted by a girl sitting in solitary. She comes over and talks to Kozol about her father and how her father is down in florida while her and her mother are up there in New York. Then she goes back to her desk, and throughout the class she keeps coming back to Kozol to tell him stuff about her father. Kozol talks with Pineapple about her and how she cries alot. Then Kozol realizes he remembers more of the distractions the children cause rather than what they were being distracted from. Also how they take pleasure in the small things of life. It stood out tto me becasue Kozol realizes that the little things that seem insignficant are actually really important to the children adn can give and insight about them.
