For some reason, I've been reading children's books lately -- some of the ones my daughter has to read for summer reading before she starts sixth grade. I just finished A Wrinkle in Time and Bridge to Terabithia. BtT was very sad but very good. I got all wrapped up in the story of Jess and Leslie and was transported back to the 5th grade. I hadn't read this Newberry award winner because it was published in 1978 when I was in college and not reading this type of book. Next, after the new Harry Potter, I will be reading Old Yeller; I've seen the movie so I know the basic story, but I've never read the book. My daughter's school reading list is introducing me to all kinds of interesting reading.
