( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Bridge to Terabithia is a classic kids book thats just been turned into a major motion picture. We take a look at the book that started it all.

Author: Katherine Paterson

Bridge to Terabithia is a story about friendship, imagination and overcoming adversity - and it's just been turned into a Disney movie starring AnnaSophia Robb and Josh Hutcherson! We're taking a look at the book that started it all.

A Brave New World

Jesse Aaron is a quiet, sensitive kid who secretly loves to draw. One summer, his title as "fastest runner in class" is threatened when a new girl arrives in school. Leslie Burke is the only child of two wealthy writers and Jesse is the only boy in a family of five kids. The two quickly form an unlikely friendship that helps them escape from their unhappy school lives.


A Whole New World

Jesse and Leslie create an imaginary world called Terabithia where they pretend they are king and queen. Everyday after school, Jesse and Leslie swing the rope swing over the river to get to their magical world where they have thrilling make-believe adventures - their friendship grows and they forget their everyday problems.


The Real World

Jesse has a huge crush on his music teacher, Ms. Edmunds, so he's stoked when he gets to go with her on a fieldtrip to the National Gallery of Art all the way in Washington D.C. But while Jesse is out of town, Leslie decides to go to Terabithia alone. What happens there will lead to a chain of events that will change both their lives forever.


The Bottom Line

Bridge to Terabithia is a tear-jerking story about friendship, courage, imagination and loss. It covers some pretty adult topics while still remaining a great kids' read. This book was first released way back in 1977 but it's a timeless story that's sure to become one of your faves. Check it out and, if you still can't get enough Terabithia action, go see the new Disney movie too!
