Boo knows many different things, all in pieces. He knows they come into his yard, because Jem's pants are returned mended. He knows there is more than one of them, and he knows they like to play. He understand what it is like to be a kid; he leaves dolls and pennies and the sorts of things that these active kids play with. They read, but he doesn't leave them books, because he doesn't see that. His knowledge is of them outside, in public. He knows they are good people, and worth great risk, because Book watches over Scout late in the novel.

nathan radley knows that it was jem and dill and scout because when the town gathered to see what the gunshot was for nathan had already known that the pants were still in the garden and that when jem showed up he was not wearing his pants. he also knew that it was dill and scout beacuse they showed up together to see what the problem was and left together.
