I like when Scout talks about how slowly time moves in their sleepy town. It’s not a happening place. Summer seems to never end and she spends the hot days performing role-playing games with Jem and Dill. This is clearly a child's perspective. Time moves much quicker as you age! Scout's summers are simple and nostalgic. THey play until late (until there is still light) and get up early in the morning and play some more. They make up stories about Boo Radley to scare each other even though, later on, they realize how childish it was.
