This is the story of Jessie and Leslie who become friends in school. They pretend the woods on the other side of the creek is their magical kingdom as a refuge from school. They learn from each other, and befriend a bully after learning there's more to her than meets the eye. The kids deal with traumatic events and finding their place in the world, and this story does it beautifully and in a way kids can understand. ( )

This Newbery Medal award winning book is a modern children’s classic. It is the story of two young friends and how they created a magical, mystical land in their imaginations. This is a beautiful story of friendship and loss and young children dealing with grief. This book delicately addresses some very emotional issues that no child should ever have to deal with. The target reader is around the 5th grade, but I believe that readers of any age can enjoy this tale. ( )

Jess has been practicing all summer so he can be the fastest runner in the school. He almost is, until the new girl in school, Leslie, is faster than him. The two become close friends and spend most days in the woods where Leslie lives. They invent an imaginary land called Terabithia. One day, Leslie goes to Terabithia alone and a horrible tragedy happens. I think this book could be a great one to read in a 5th or 6th grade classroom. It could really get the classroom interested and paying attention to the story. ( )

This book is something of a mixed bag for me. I remember reading and loving it as a child, but then rereading it in advance if passing it along to my own daughter, I have serious misgivings. Many come in the form of criticisms leveled in other reviews - dysfunctional family dynamics, cruelty among schoolchildren and toward teachers, Jesse connecting Leslie’s death with his own choices, etc. I had completely forgotten about a lot of the negative language and viewpoints of the book, and even as a child seeing Jesse blame himself for Leslie’s death, I knew it was his perspective, but not actually true. I do remember that I loved seeing Jesse grow more confident in who he was and his imagination, and at the end learn to accept grief and move on with a bigger heart.

There’s something beautiful and powerful about reading/watching a person’s path through grief, particularly because if it’s real, then it’s not pretty and not easy to look at. The audiobook version I listened to had a short interview with the author and her son, where I learned that this book came directly from an experience where Patterson’s son lost a friend suddenly and tragically when he was 7 or 8. He said he didn’t remember much from that time, but I expect the event was seared into his mother’s memory. As such, she had a first hand look at how a child deals with grief. Jesse experiences anger, depression, guilt, and deals with them in a way that seems pretty natural for a boy his age. He doesn’t get much direction from adults (it seemed that either, like Leslie’s parents, they were too caught up in their own grief, or, like Jesse’s parents, they didn’t really know how to deal with it), but he manages to find his way thru to acceptance and peace.

The book describes one boy’s experience, it doesn’t recommend how one should experience loss (or deal with life in general, for that matter, it just describes a rather harsh culture in which to grow up). That being said, there are other books about dealing with loss and grief that provide better supporting characters and atmospheres, so I don’t feel the need to share this one in particular with my kids, at least not just yet.

Jess Aarons lives a simple life for a teenager, helping his parents with the chores, doing his schoolwork, and trying his best to become the fastest runner in school. When a new girl, Leslie Burke, moves in as his new neighbor, all of that changes. For one, Leslie turns out to be a rather fast runner herself. And together they invent Terabithia, an enchanted land that only they can get to or see in the woods near their homes. But fantasies can only last for so long, and a tragic accident shatters their world in a way that leaves Jess wondering if he can ever truly pick up the pieces.

I saw this movie a few years back, and it was one that I certainly enjoyed right away. The book provided an interesting comparison. The movie follows the book pretty well, though I think the book provides a little bit better sense of how Jess feels about his life and the people around him. It's subtle, which I think is a testament to the way the author has developed the world and the characters, but it's there. And, overall, I think it adds both to understanding Jess's motivation and his reactions as we move through the book. ( )

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.
