Product Description

Jess Aarons greatest ambition is to be the fastest runner in the fifth grade. He's been practicing all summer and can't wait to see his classmates faces when he beats them all. But on the first day of school, a new kid, a new girl, boldly crosses over to the boys side of the playground and outruns everyone. That's not a very promising beginning for a friendship, but Jess and Leslie Burke became inseparable. It doesn't matter to Jess that Leslie dresses funny, or that her family has a lot of money -- but no TV. Leslie has imagination. Together, she and Jess create Terebithia, a magical kingdom in the woods where the two of them reign as king and queen, and their imaginations set the only limits. Then one morning a terrible tragedy occurs. Only when Jess is able to come to grips with this tragedy does he finally understand the strength and courage Leslie has given him. Recommended for ages 9 and up. The 1978 Newbery Medal winner.

Publisher's Description

This Newbery Medal-winning novel by bestselling author Katherine Paterson is a modern classic of friendship and loss.

Jess Aarons has been practicing all summer so he can be the fastest runner in the fifth grade. And he almost is, until the new girl in school, Leslie Burke, outpaces him. The two become fast friends and spend most days in the woods behind Leslie's house, where they invent an enchanted land called Terabithia. One morning, Leslie goes to Terabithia without Jess and a tragedy occurs. It will take the love of his family and the strength that Leslie has given him for Jess to be able to deal with his grief.

In addition to being a Newbery Medal winner, Bridge to Terabithia was also named an ALA Notable Children's Book and has become a touchstone of children's literature, as have many of Katherine Paterson's other novels, including The Great Gilly Hopkins and Jacob Have I Loved.

    My 4th grade son had to read this book in his Christian school.

    The book uses the Lord's name in vain a lot! It also had swear words in it my son was unaware of. I stopped reading it with him when we got to the word b***h. The Christian parents are ignorant, unhappy and distant parents. The liberal non- believing parents are fun great parents. Spoiler alert-The only friend the boy has, a girl dies with out becoming a Christian. She is in 5th grade so it brings up the whole age of accountability issue. It has been on the ALA most banned or challenged books for the last 20 years. We were lucky because our Headmaster pulled the book when I brought it to his attention.
