A Newbery Award winner, A Wrinkle in Time is an iconic novel that continues to inspire millions of fans around the world.

These are the scientific, political, and social landscapes that existed when A Wrinkle in Time was first read by young people in America. Many things have changed since then, but the book remains a favorite of students and teachers alike, because, one hand, it is a work of science fiction and fantasy that transcends the everyday to illuminate large themes and concerns, and on the other, it deals with the small and large realities of young people's lives: relationships among friends and family, courage, conformity, and growing up. On top of that, it's a great adventure story with characters kids care about.
A Wrinkle in Time is, in short, a classic, a part of young people's heritage and culture.
In this guide, we've provided questions for contemplation and discussion, activities for exploration, and teaching connections to science, social studies, history, and literature.
A Wrinkle in Time is one of my favorite books of all time. I've read it so often, I know it by heart. Meg Murry was my hero growing up. I wanted glasses and braces and my parents to stick me in an attic bedroom. And I so wanted to save Charles Wallace from IT. Meg Cabot
A book that every young person should read, a book that provides a road map for seeking knowledge and compassion even at the worst of times, a book to make the world a better place. Cory Doctorow
[L'Engle's] work is one of the things that made me a writer, a science fiction and fantasy fan, an avid reader. Hers were the first books I read that mixed math and magic, the quest and the quantum. Scott Westerfeld
A Wrinkle in Time taught me that you can tackle even the deepest and most slippery concepts of physics and philosophy in fiction for young readers. It's a great lesson for all writers, and a tough tesseract to follow. David Lubar

RedRaider89Age: 45-54Gender: male3 Stars Out Of 5Recommned, but not for the reason you'd think.April 1, 2012RedRaider89Age: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3I just completed this book and it is rather odd and I wonder why it is here on ChristianBook.com. You'd think ChristianBook.com thinks this is a Christian book. Well, it very certainly is not a Christian book. This is more closely aligned with a New Age book, with some science fiction and science fact thrown in. The strongest evidence against it is it's equating Buddah with Jesus Christ, along with Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Einstein, etc., all equally being "fighters against the "Dark Thing", the villain in the book. In addition, it has three women who can easily be considered to be witches, though not called witches. My main point here is to say, don't be fooled into believing this is a Christian book simply because Mrs. L'Engle likes to throw in a few Bible verses, more than a few being misquoted. If Mrs. L'Engle had not tried to throw together Science Fiction with Christianity, and had just stuck to Science Fiction, I'd highly recommend this book. But this throwing in of Bible verses, using them for secular purposes, is bad since there is nothing fictitious about Christianity and this book does not give the slightest indication that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be, God, and no indication that He has already defeated the villian, the Dark Thing, which is Evil personified, in the book at the cross. In the book, Jesus Christ is just a great teacher and great fighter, as we all are, against "The Powers of Darkness", which that phrase the book actually contains, not the one who defeated the "powers of darkness" once and for all at the cross.
