Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Hynes-Berry
This paperback book is exactly what it claims to be: a collection of photos and interviews showing everyone from the author and her son to the actors and crew as it spells out exactly how Katherine Paterson's classic children's book was turned into a major Disney picture, filmed in New Zealand. As a serious fan of the original story, I was interested in the rationale behind changing the ending for the movie, but remained unconvinced that it was the right thing to do. The magic of the original story lies in how Jess and Leslie use their imaginations to make a place where their friendship and mutual support prevails over the demons of bullying, poverty, and other challenges of their lives. All the elaborate Disney-fying of Terabithia itself leaves nothing to the viewer's imagination. While it may be spectacular, this treatment threatens to undercut the serious work that is behind children's dramatic play—that is, the important way it allows children to explore and cope with life's serious challenges, including the loss of a loved one.

    Book Review Outline
    Dacota B., WV
    Book title and author: Bridge to Terabithia by: Katherine Peterson
    Title of review: A Very Well Written Book
    Number of stars (1 to 5): 5


    This a book that is about two friends who lets their imagination go wild, in a secret land. I think the author's main point is that to let your own imagination
    Without getting hurt in the process.


    Jess Aarons is a boy who's biggest ambition in life is to be the fastest runner than the whole 5'th grade. Then Leslie, a new student to the school, beets all the boys on their own field in races, and this is where Leslie and Jess meet. Throughout the book Jess and Leslie create this kingdom of magic which is a rope's swing across the creek. Here in this kingdom Jess and Leslie let their own imagination go wild which is why this kingdom is so magical.


    I think this book achieves its goals by a very vibrantly written story that brings you through a great friendship that last throughout the story.


    I hope my review will make you anxious to read this very interesting book. Thanks for reading my review of Bridge to Terabithia.

    my 13 yr old son loved it

    We purchased this on my nook for my 13 yr old son because he wanted to use it for a book report. He had seen the movie a few years ago and thought he might like the book as well. He read it in just a few days and after finishing it he commented that it was one of the best books he's read in a long time (and he reads a lot of books). Honestly I was a little surprised; I hadn't actually expected that strong of a response. When I asked him more about it, he said that he felt the author was so descriptive and really painted the scenery so well with words. He felt like he was able to really follow along in his imagination. He also said that - like most other books that are made into movies - he liked the book much better than the movie. Overall, we were very pleased with the purchase, and will probably read this in the future with our other kids as well.

    Terrific Terabithia!!

    Imagine standing in a grove where pines are so green and everything is so still that you could hear a pin drop. Where time seems to stop and spirits roam a girl and boy have one of the greatest friendships ever. Bridge to Terabithia is written by Katherine Patterson and is about a girl and boy who create a magical kingdom and become the best of friends. This book is realistic fiction and if you have a great imagination, as soon as you start reading this book you won't be able to put it down.
    I liked the way that Leslie Burke was braver than Jesse Aarons. I liked this because, people say that girls aren't as brave as boys and in most books the boy is braver than the girl. One time Janice Avory a bully was crying in the girl's bathroom and Leslie went in and Jesse was shaking because, he was worried that she would get beat up. Leslie wasn't even scared. Once there was a storm and they had to swing over a creek and Jesse was scared but, Leslie wasn't. Many people say that boys are braver than girls but, in this book Leslie is braver than Jesse.
    I liked the way Spirit Grove was described. In the book when it was described, I almost felt as if I was there. This was one part that was perfect for visualization. When it was raining really hard, Jesse and Leslie went to Spirit Grove to offer and offering to make it stop raining. After a great tragedy, Jesse made a wreath and gave it to the spirits in spirit grove to keep and protect. Spirit Grove is described as if you where there and it was the offering place to the spirits.
    This book was both, sad and entertaining, full of imagination. I liked this book a lot and would defiantly see the movie and reread the book. One of the reasons was that the girl was braver than the boy and one of the scenes was described really well and was called Spirit Grove. So once you start reading you can't put it down.

    Wild immaginations

    I higly recommend this book Bride to Tarabithia to all readers who have wild immaginations. This book that I am reviewing is Bridge to Tarabithia is has a great story behind the covers. The Story tells you that you can put your mind into anything and it can happen. The Genre is for all ages its easy to read and easy to understand. The story takes place at Lark Creek Elemenatry and Tarabethia. All the action takes place in Tarabithia even when a tragidy happens can Jess step us as king and rule the tarabithians. when they made their own country Leslie became the queen and Jess became the King, they ruled with each other with companionship. The story fulfills the purpose because it tells us if we put our minds in work any thing is possible I agree. The Main Characters are Jess Aarons and Leslie Burke they go to the same school and the founders of tarabethia. I recommend this book to everyone read the book first then watch the movie

    Bridge to Terabithia review

    Bridge to Terabithia is a novel about a boy and his family. One day a girl and her family moved into the house beside Jess. Jess hated her at the beginning of the story because she beat him at the races at school. Then one day they became friends. Jess was not expecting to come home and see his whole family sitting in the living room crying. They all thought that something bad had happened to him. But he had went with his teacher to a museum. When Jess stepped in the door his father was there to tell him what had happened to his friend. Jess did not believe him at first tell he went to the neighbors house to find that it was true, his friend had died. When Jess and Leslie became friends they make up a place called Terabithia. They go there everyday when they get off the bus. One day Jess goes to a museum with his teacher and did not ask Leslie if she wanted to go. When he got home he found that something bad happened to one of his friends. I think the story is good. It teaches you a good listen not to bully people. Because in the story a bully does something to Leslie and Jess, so they make a note and said it was from someone that she liked. The bully believed them and she didn't bully them again!!

    It's still the best

    I have fond memories of reading this book as a child-I still vividly remember crying hysterically on my bed. Now as an adult, and a teacher- it still remains one of my favorites...and still makes me cry hysterically. It is a beautiful and POWERFUL story of friendship,imagination, the longing to be accepted, courage, and healing. One note- be aware of the discussion in the book between the young characters that child abuse should be kept a 'family secret' and stress with readers the importance on NOT keeping it a secret.

    Awesome

    Bridge to Terabithia was the best book I've read. This book was the best because there is a lot of imagination you could escape to. When I read this book by Katherine Paterson, I knew she was a good author because she really describes the characters Jess and Leslie. When Jess met Leslie he was shocked because she was the first person he trusted. Their friendship was the best, but then the unthinkable happens.
    You should read this book to learn about Jess and Leslie's friendship. When you read this book you are going to hate Ellie and Brenda but love MayBelle . Maybelle is Jess's smallest sister, but you are going to be shocked when you hear about what MayBelle did. She did something really horrible. Terabithia was the secret place Jess and Leslie built. I recommend this to somebody who likes imagination and adventure. I also recommend this for teachers to read to their class.

    Bridge to Terabithia Book Review

    Jess Aarons isn't always understood in his family. When his new neighbor moves in, everything changes. Her name is Lesile Burke. Leslie and Jess at first are basically strangers. After a while they become friends, as they break through challenges.
    Beyond some fields there is a small creek. Not too high above is an old rope. They imagine that after you swing on the rope onto the other side of the creek that you are in their magical land they call Terabithia. They work together and build forts (castles) and explore their kingdom, walking as the king and queen of Terabithia. The challenges at school come to life in Terabithia, as they face them in both places. Both of them work together to face them all, they truly were best friends. As the challenges get bigger, they get stronger. In the end the two of them come across their biggest problem yet, which turns into a struggle not everyone can face as Jess has to get all the help he can get. As his family actually listens and helps.

    THE COOLEST BOOK EVER!

    In the book Bridge to Terabithia there is a friendship and a death. There are bullies and people who are just full of themselves. This book is so cool. I enjoyed it. And I think you would enjoy it too. Bridge to Terabithia is about a boy and a girl who become friends. They also make up a secret place that they use their imagination. And have all kinds of different animals. It's like a magical world that no one knows about but them.



    I love this book because it is so outgoing. And it makes me feel like I'm in the book. The other reason I like this book is because it has a lot of action in it and it is creative. I also think that the way they use their imaginations in this magical world called Terabithia! Some people think and say that it is dumb and it don't make since and that it is boring. I don't think it's boring, because it's just awesome!

    It Takes Guts.

    This book makes you cry and laugh. When Leslie is first introduced you aren't sure about her, but then you get to know her. I also loved May Belle. But Jesse, really gives the story life. He doesn't think he has guts, but it takes lots of them to stick up for the new kid. The pain he must have felt at the loss of Leslie I can relate to, my grandmother died when I was yong. It takes guts to handle all the things he had to. But I think having the guts to do that earns him the title of King.

    Real and whimsical

    Real life is not always about happy endings people. Trials, sadness, and how we face adversity is what define us. It was a good read. You manage to love the characters and can really feel them. Give it a whirl.
