Free Teaching Resource: Bridge to Terabithia Audiobook Lesson

In this classic novel, fifth grader Jesse Aaron's dreams of becoming the fastest runner in his class are dashed when newcomer Leslie Burke outruns everybody, even him. But Jess and Leslie begin a friendship, and soon they discover a magical kingdom in the forest, where they reign as king and queen. The friendship between young Jess and Leslie grows as they meet in Terabithia — their secret hiding place — and only ends with the tragic death of one of them.

Set in contemporary rural America, "the story is one of remarkable richness and depth, beautifully written". — The Horn Book
