Bridge to Terabithia. Just the name is magical. You have to take a bridge to go somewhere unrealistic, so similar to the real world. Because even in fantasy there are always similarities to the real world. You are always on the move using bridges to keep on moving. If you do you will get to the place you want to get to.The things said above are just a few things that I’ve learned from Bridge to Terabithia. That’s what I appreciate from Bridge to Terabithia, no matter what kind of book that you are reading there always things to learn and things to resolve. One thing that needs to be resolved in Bridge to Terabithia is Jess’s relationship with his father. His father is never around always at work never spending time with his children. When thing that shows how Jess’s father is unsupportive and not exactly best father of the year is when Jess as a young boy showed his father a painting he made in school. I’m sure that any other father would have said “Good job son”, but like the man he is he starts getting angry about the teachers for turning his son into a ____. Yes since Bridge to Terabithia is a children’s book Katherine Patterson did not write the last word she leaves it to the imagination of the reader.
All that I wrote above made start to think that maybe that is why Jess is so eager to enter Terabithia but still a little cautious. I always believe that this is due to his father being so distant and not always so intergraded in his children’s life. I feel that if I were Jess I would feel the same. Maybe this new concept is cool but will father approve. Jess is not the only kid with out problems; I think that Leslie also has problems only Patterson did not go into dept.
I bet that many people reading for the eighth grade assignment thought the book they were reading would be as shallow as a kiddie pool, but just like the ocean the deeper you go the more you find along the way. The ocean has no end just like your interpretations.
