    When I read this in fourth grade I loved it because it was enchanting and reminded me very much of 'secret hideouts' I made with friends at the same age When I read it again later in life aloud to my younger brother and sister ages 10 and 12 I was choking back tears to keep reading aloud and they were crying If you've never read it or I suppose now seen the movie beware this review is a spoiler What I have learned from this book is that our assumptions about children and what is appropriate for them are seriously flawed We assume they need color fantasy and bling and that they can't deal with hard topics like death and oh speaking of that life Kids are people too And they do understand and can deal with hard topics in many ways better than us adults who have learned to choke back the tears instead of actually crying When I was a kid going to my secret hideouts I wasn't just playing I was escaping If kids don't understand real life then why do they run from it then as in this book and in real life gain life altering skills while away and come back stronger? I may choke back tears now but when I was 10 I went to my secret hideouts to cry and deal with things in my own way in my own world just like Leslie and Jesse do in Terabithia

    You would think that even after seeing the movie and knowing how this ends I wouldn't cry but here I am This book was very enjoyable I can't remember if I read it as a kid but it was definitely worth reading now that I'm olderThe writing is pretty and gives you a very country vibe with vibrant imagery and cozy settings but I felt like the characters lacked a lot of description Maybe it’s a children’s book and i’m not used to the shorter pace but it felt like a lot needed to be fleshed out The relationships between the characters Day to day activities Dialogue scenes It all just happened very uickly and it was hard to gauge how much time was actually passing and it felt like the characters and plot were progressing faster than they probably actually wereI really need to pick up children’s classics because reading a book written and presumably set in the 70s was so captivating References to the Vietnam war and the fearlessness about talking about religion and God was just something I rarely see today and adding in details so particular to the time period almost 50 years ago now was just very cool I couldn’t get the movie out of my head when I read this even though I haven’t seen the movie in years Baby josh hutcherson is so precious that I think it added a spark to the book just seeing his face in my mind However comparing the book to the movie was a little bit detrimental because I think I liked the movie a little ? Just because it took time to flesh out the characters and add detail to the world of Terabithia whereas in the book Terabithia was ironically rather underexplainedI loved how it described Jess as having a nervous gut There were references to Jess having anxiety in this and i’m glad it wasn’t portrayed as something like HE NEEDS TO MAN UP HE’S AFRAID OF SWIMMING AND HIS DAD PUTS A LOT OF PRESSURE ON HIM TO BE PERFECT HE SHOULD BE THE MAN OF THE FAMILY Instead it’s approached as if fear and shyness is natural and you need to work through it organically and I thought that was really beautiful and encouraging

    Oh I loved this book too Its so sweet and sad and wonderful I cried My teacher read it out loud in my 5th grade class and when the character died I turned to the little boy next to me and said That's not true is it? and he looked at me with tears in his eyes and nodded It was probably one of the first mature interactions I ever had with an icky boy

    I'm heading out into the backyard now in the dark with a flashlight a shovel and my paperback copy of Bridge to Terabithia I'm going to be careful not to dig a hole in the same place where I've buried Old Yeller but to give this book its very own sacred burial spaceWhen I come back inside I will inform my 11 year old daughter that we are never going to talk about this book again“Never” she will say We will look at each other and nod in agreement We will never talk about this book again Sometimes it seemed to him that his life was delicate as a dandelion One little puff from any direction and it was blown to bits

    This is one of the books that taught me that Books Can Hurt It was part of what I now consider to be my fourth grade teacher's reign of terror she read Where the Red Fern Grows and Bridge to Terabithia out loud to us and those are just the books I was in her class for and I seriously think she did it for the days when inevitably the entire class would spend the afternoon weeping at our desksThat said though and it needed to be said this is a good book; it was so engaging to me at that age that I got it from the library after the first day she read it to us and finished it by myself later that night Admittedly this was not uncommon behavior for me I did not like reading at other people's paces Of course this meant I got to cry twice and also spend the intervening time trying not to cry because I knew what was coming The characters are engaging The story is memorable even 25 years later But this is the book that taught me two important lessons do not trust Katherine Paterson as far as you can see her and do not trust fourth grade teachers either

    This is absolutely a great book I loved to read itI don't know if you ever watch the film from 2007 if you do but you haven't read the book I can tell you that the movie is a good adaptation BUT it can mislead you in the fantasy factor even I used that label in my review but only because at this moment I don't have a better label to describe the book in a fair wayI tell you all that since in the film they gave a lot of emphasis and screen time to all those magic creatures however they don't exist in the book the kids are really clear on that they are playing sure but they don't start to watch magic creatures from the thin air they just using something called imaginationI tell you that too just to make you understand that if you want to read this book expecting something in the style of Harry Potter or Narnia you will get a real disappointment BUT if you are looking to read an amazing coming to age story you will read one of the best books in that area genre andor topicDue to clumsy reasons this great book has been banned in many libraries What I can tell you is that the kids here talk and think in a very real and honest way so I don't think that can be a good reason to ban this bookThis is a truly great novel about growing about maturing about the impossibility of controlling life and that you have to treasure each moment that you are living since you never know when something will change foreverAlso you won't understand the reason for the title of this book until you read it but please don't do any research or investigation since the impact of the story depends of that you don't know anything aheadThis is a short book just read it and it will live in your heart forever

    Even when I was 12 I thought this was a crap bookWhat's with all the hype? This was so fucking boring I read this in 6th grade during a time when I was prone to sobbing at anything We watched Ben Hur in class and I cried like a baby I don't even remember why We read Where the Red Fern Grows aloud in class and I was sobbing in front of everyone I didn't shed a single fucking tear for this book

    My damn heart is broken 😭😭😭😭😭😭This book broke my heart and left me in tears when I finished up reading it And I was not expecting it to be this sad and devastating in the end as I went into this children's classic blindlyThe story tells about the blooming friendship between two kids Jesse Aarons and his new neighbour Leslie Burke two lonely kids Jess being the only male child in his family and expected to take care of errands and his sisters; Leslie being an outcast and bullied at school The story developed fine and the writing style made it feel like life becomes better with a friend a sweet younger sibling who looks up to you an understanding teacher and it's best to avoid negative people be it your family or so called 'friends' It's the second half that the writing got intense and got me sobbing mad It dealt with death and grief which I feel were handled well I cried so because I got too attached to these characters as well as their pet dog PT Leslie's character is delightful and memorable She's such a nerd And an amazing personality Jess's character is amusing He's that personality which says there's always sunshine after a rainy dayI love the fantasy world they built It's something to be rejoiced and something for which a price had to be paid unfortunatelyI didn't enjoy the stereotypes of body shaming the way some characters were described and in some instances the unwelcomed violence in a book which is meant for children But a memorable read indeed

    No I'm not crying There's just a log in my eye Okay so I read this YEARS ago Maybe when I was 14? I saw the movie first and that absolutely ruined me I think this is about my 3rd reread which proves this book is timeless As well as you know heart ripping I thought I'd be okay reading this BUT I WASN'T I JUST WAS NOT I JUST ABOUT CHOKED UP WHEN THE DAD SAIDLord boy don't be a fool God ain't gonna send any little girls to hellI don't know why But I really just started crying there This book is amazing for it's little lines that just hit home so powerfully It's a few sentences and BOOM it's gotten under your skin and into your soulAlso I never really cared about good writing before now butTHIS IS SERIOUSLY GOOD WRITING Sure there are chapters were it's mostly told what's happened without actual scenes But the dialogue? It's perfection and natural but not weighted down with unnecessaries or dialogue tags Omg it's just beautiful And the story flows so perfectly There are TWO foreshadows to the ending which I only noticed now of course And towards the end I just started feeling outright SICK because I knew what was coming I noticed other things being an adult reading this that I wouldn't have picked up on originally Like There's uite a bit of fat shaming here Both Janice Avery the school bully and one of Jess' sisters get teased about being fat It was sad and I felt uncomfortable particularly when no one felt bad for doing this When the teacher reads out Leslie's essay she says this is an unusual hobby for a girlwhich sort of tainted the chapter for me The whole Ms Edmunds taking Jess to the city for the day wasweird I mean logically? She was just being nice But you'd never get away iwth that in a million years these days Especially since Ms Edmunds didn't even talk to his parents I know I know she told him to get permission and it was finebut you know what I MEANI'm not saying these are heinous faults I think they just colour the book from the era it was written in And if a book can still be timeless through all this? Then just GIVE IT A MILLION STICKERS AND HUG IT Or slap it Because it made me cry dangitI love the themes of uncanny friendship of Jess feeling under appreciated and overlooked and like a fish out of water in his family and of being bullied and turning into the bullies There is literally so much packed into this book And of course the gut wrenching happenings of Leslie BurkeAlso the ending made me freaking sob again Darn this book When Jess took May Belle into Terabithia? ERMAGERD I CANNOT RIGHT NOW Aren't I supposed to be the mature reasonable adult here? Hand me the tissue boxThis book is a warm soulful classic that broke me and I hate it but I love it And that's all I'm gonna say
