4) No I don't because I know that if you don't want to do something you don't have to do it. For example, if you don't want to sing you don't have to sing in front of other people.

In Room 3 Learning Tree, we all agreed that our brothers and sisters have a huge impact on how we feel about ourselves and the things that we do!

Also we made a connection to "I'm here"...at the end of the story, Peter Reynolds says "In the world you are one person, but to one person you are the world". In "Ish", Ramon's sister was the world to him by making him think differently about his art work and feel better about himself!

Hazel: I think the author's message is that you don't always have to be perfect.

Diego-You should just enjoy what you do. You don't have to be the best. It doesn't matter how you draw if you like it.

Sean-I think you should just draw whatever you like and not worry about what others think or feel.

Hayden- I think that his brother needs to be helpful and make a good difference, not make him feel bad.
