We will be reading "Bridge to Terabithia" by Katherine Paterson. Here is a review from commonsensemedia.org: It focuses on the sweet friendship of a tween boy and girl who share imaginative play, creating a world of their own just a rope swing away, far from the school bullies they face. It also features a child's death and grief in the aftermath of the tragedy, and may provoke tears. There's mention of cremation, which may be upsetting to some kids. Some strong language, including "b**ch," "damn," and "hell." The book also mentions buying gifts for the children that are from Santa Claus.
