I read this book the first time as a grade-schooler. I loved it, I loved how it didn't lie to me and how it didn't pretty things up. I loved the purity of it. I searched for it for years and finally found it again (I was incredibly surprised that so few book-store employees had never heard of it!) in my twenties. It took me back to the first time I read it and I enjoyed it just as much as an adult as I did when I was younger. I highly recommend this book and have even gone so far as to buy and send copies of it to friends and relatives since finding it again.

One day while bored near the holidays, I, at 37 years old (adult kids with no grandkids), watched this movie. I loved it. Being a member of PBS , I decided to read this children's book. I am so glad I did. Don't ever think you are to old to read a child/young adult/pre teen book! I almost missed out on one of the best books I have ever read!

A classic, must read. Only passing on because I have another copy.
It's a book you'll read over and over at any age.

An older Newberry-award winning children's novel published in 1960, I think, about a fifth-grade boy named Jesse who wants nothing more than to be the fastest runner in his class, and his new neighbor Leslie, who (even though she's a girl) beats him handily in a race. They become fast friends in spite of it, and spend hours in the fields and forests across the creek near their houses, in a make-believe world Leslie has named Terabithia. Fifth grade leaves some hard lessons to be learned for Jesse. I loved this book--very heartwarming, gut-wrenching story of growing up and learning to deal with the curve balls life throws at you.

This is one of the best children's books I have ever read. It's a powerful, yet simple, story about friendship, life, and finding your place in the world. Despite being an award winner, this book is frequently banned - do yourself a favor and fight censorship by reading this wonderful tale!
