A collection of Children's books that I have loved for a long time or just recently had the opportunity to love.
Let me just say, I still remember reading this book for the first time in fourth grade. I remember loving it from the moment I read the first chapter to the very last page. This is one of those few books that a child will always remember. It plays onto the real and raw feelings of children from one extreme to the next, imagination to heartbreak. To get you started, two kidss, Jess and Leslie become unlikely friends after becoming neighbors and create and imaginary world across the creek by their house called Terabithia. Real life events take place and the story shows how one person can leave a very lasting impression on someone else that can change their whole outlook on the world. I love this book. Definitely top 3 of my favorite chapter books. I loved the idea of using this book during guided reading because it can bring on great discussion in groups. Also, I’d love to use in an anchor chart throughout the book to make predictions each week and check off what we find out though each chapter. This book could also be used to describe character traits.
