One my favorite childhood books. My 4th grade teacher used to read to us after lunch everyday and this was a book she read to us. It kept me riveted, I couldn't wait for reading time everyday. I would scarf my food down, in anticipation of hearing more of this story. I bought this book at our next book fair at school. It was one of my prized possessions and I reread it multiple times as throughout the rest of my childhood.

Fast forward several years, I was ecstatic when I saw the trailer to the movie. I bought it the minute it was released. I have 5 children and they all love it. I have also recommended this book throughout the years to multiple friends and family members for their children. We still own the movie and multiple copies of the book. I still think it is one of the best children's books of all times.

Touching on some of the negatives in reviews....yes, it does include dysfunctional family content, poverty, bullies, and childhood death. These things are reality. You can't trap your children in a bubble, they should be exposed to real life and literature is one of the best ways to do so.

IMO, this book should be on every child's bookshelf! ( )

I knew this was going to leave me in pieces but I read it anyway. I saw the film a few years ago (with my son who was about 6 at the time and left traumatised by the experience - nice parenting, Olly), so I knew the ending, but still....
It’s a beautifully written tale of childhood friendship and imagination that I can’t find a single fault with. The book manages to be very readable without ever patronising its target audience. It’s also thrilling and fun, but yeah, that ending....

Classic, you need to read this, it is whimsical with tragedy. ( )

This is a story set in a rural area in the...1960s (?), about a 10-year-old boy who liked to draw, liked music, liked stories....But because of his working class family background, no one in his family understood him, and his parents...um...they didn't parent him very appropriately. Then an upper-middle class family moved in next door, and the 10-year-old girl in that family became best friends with the boy. The boy felt understood, inspired, loved. Then the girl drowned in an accident. The boy grieved and gradually came to cope with her death. Vivid description and storytelling. Reading this as an adult, I kept focusing on (and questioning!) the parenting decisions of of both Jess and Leslie's parents. Why spoil Jess's two older sisters by letting them go out shopping when the family couldn't afford the spending, and when there is much help needed around the house? Why so little interest in trying to communicate with or understand Jess? (This improved significantly after Jess began grieving for the girl's death, though.) Why so little interest in learning about and understanding Leslie's difficulties to socialize at school, when her parents had moved to the rural area for Leslie's sake in the first place? Why allow Jess and Leslie to wander away from the house with no supervision? Why allow Leslie to go near the creek on her own when the water was running so high? The depiction of public school life is scary. It seems like an awful place where students form cliques, bullies roam, and it is dangerous to show your weakness and personal struggles in front of your community. Hopefully the public school culture has changed significantly since then.... ( )

Bridge to Terabithia is an imaginative tale that tells the story of two friends creating an enchanted Kingdom they named Terabithia. Jess and Leslie become fast friends after Leslie outruns Jess in the big race that he has been practicing for all summer. They play in the woods behind Leslie's house and invent Terabithia. The two go on many adventures in this magical land, but tragedy struck when Leslie decides to go without Jess and she falls swinging from the rope. From the help of his family and friends, Jess learns how to deal with the untimely death of his best friend. ( )

Valerie O. Patterson (Children's Literature)
Jesse Oliver Aarons, Jr. practices all summer so that he can be the fastest runner in his rural Virginia fifth-grade class. Despite his practice, however, he loses the race on the first day of school to Leslie Burke, the new girl in school whose hippy parents have moved from Washington, DC. Despite Jesse’s lost running dream, he becomes fast friends with Leslie. Together they build the imaginary kingdom of Terabitia in the woods. To Jesse, Leslie is “more than his friend. She was his other more exciting self--his way to Terabithia and all the worlds beyond.” When Jesse’s favorite teacher takes him to see the art museums in Washington one rainy day, he returns home to find his world permanently changed by tragedy--Leslie’s death. Despite his heartache, Jesse moves forward, a stronger and more whole individual for his friendship with Leslie. Written by the author for her then young son whose best friend was killed by lightning, this Newbery Medal winner moves the heart and spirit with its beautiful writing, wrenching honesty, and hopeful ending. 2005 (orig. 1977), HarperCollins, $5.99. Ages 9 to 12.
