“Bridge to Terabithia” is an outstanding story, a Newbery winner, and it made me cry like “Beaches” – all positives in my book (titled “Checklist of Things Great Books Need”). I just have trouble selling it to kids. The reason why? The cover just doesn’t strike them as something they want to dig into. I’ve been seeing a newly covered version in stores lately – here’s hoping it gives this classic the circulations it deserves.
