It sounds like your book shows examples from a case-sensitive Scheme.
If you want your book and your Scheme match down to the letters' case,
you want a different Scheme implementation.

MIT Scheme has always been case insensitive.  "Bob" is read as a
symbol named "bob".  Taking no notice of the difference, MIT Scheme
always prints the symbol Bob as "bob".
