Bridge to Terabithia
In the first three chapters of Bridge to Terabithia, Katherine Paterson introduces us to Jess and his family. As the only boy sandwiched between 4 sisters, Jess seems to feel his family treats him differently than they treat the girls. On the contrary, Jess seems to find peace when running or spending time with Miss Edmunds. Do you think Jess’s family treats him differently? Why or why not? Why do you think running and Miss Edmunds’s appreciation for his art are important to Jess? Use specific examples from the book to support your thoughts.
