Before you get started look at the cover art, read a summary and watch a trailer of the film.

Summary: Jess Aarons’ life is not exactly ideal. In a place where individualism and creative expression is scorned, Jess struggles to become himself. He secretly draws any chance he gets, and he practices each day to be the fastest runner in the fifth grade. However, a new girl, Leslie Burke, wins on the day of the big race.

This is no ideal beginning for a friendship, but Jess soon finds Leslie to be a true friend and full of imagination. Together, the two create an imaginary kingdom, Terabithia, where they reign as king and queen. They battle their foes, both real and imaginary, and celebrate their victories together until one day, when a tragedy occurs. Only as he deals with the tragedy does Jess realize the courage and confidence he has learned from Leslie.
