In chapter 5 what do we learn about Miss. Maudie?

I would say that we learn that like the character of Atticus, Maudie has similar views about the rights and dignity of all people.
Instead of being despondent over the burning of her home, Miss Maudie stands as an example of bravery to the children and others. She tells Jem and the others that she looks forward to rebuilding a smaller house that will allow her to have more room for her precious flowers.
It tells us that Miss. Maudie demonstrates a sympathetic attitude towards Boo Radley. She is one of the book's strongest, bravest and most resilient female character in the book. She believes in justice and integrity just like Atticus Finch. She is also a confidante among the local woman. She is a good role model to follow.
