#2 Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson

Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
Bridge to Terabithia is a classic in children’s literature. It won the genre’s most prestigious prize, The Newbery Medal from the American Library Association, in 1978. And yet, the book is more relevant than ever. The story of two outcasts, Jess and Leslie, the book beautifully portrays the surprising places we often find friendship. And through deft handling of tragedy, the book is also generatively instructive for children beginning to ask about life and death.
