Transcript of Banned Book: "Bridge to Terabithia".

"Bridge to Terabithia" A Banned Book Reasons Le Summary By me... A Banned Book -Because of the disrespect the children show to adults
-confusion of combining fantasy with reality
-profanity
-the concept of death
-Boy using the word "Lord" out of prayer
-secular humanism
-New Age religion
-Satanism + witchcraft Paterson's Thoughts "There are folks who believe that children's books should tell a story about people as truthfully and powerfully as possible. When you tell a powerful story it nearly always seems to offend somebody." Paterson's Thoughts (2) "Initially, it was challenged because it deals with a boy in rural Virginia, and he uses the word 'Lord' a lot, and it's not in prayer. Then there are more complicated reasons. The children build an imaginary kingdom, and there was a feeling I was promoting the religion of secular humanism, and then New Age religion." - Le author of "Bridge to Terabithia"
- Born October 31, 1932 in Qingjiang China (80 years old.)

While he's away, Leslie freakin' tries to go to Terabithia herself, but THE ROPE BREAKS. She hits her head on a rock and drowns in the creek. Katherine Paterson "Bridge to Terabithia" tells the story of two children, Jesse and Leslie, who are outsiders at school, and sometimes even at home. They become best friends, and they create an imaginary kingdom called Terabithia in the woods, which they access by swinging on a rope over a creek, yo. Le Author's Quotes... "...eliminate the study of materials containing information about witchcraft, magic, evil spells, or related material now and forever...We believe this material is Satanic, a danger to our children, is being studied excessively, and has no place in our schools." 1.) There are folks who believe that children's books should tell a story about people as truthfully and powerfully as possible. When you tell a powerful story, it nearly always seems to offend somebody." 2.) "Initially, it was challenged because it deals with a boy who lives in rural Virginia, and he uses the word 'Lord' a lot, and it's not in prayer. Then there are more complicated reasons. The children build an imaginary kingdom, and there was a feeling I was promoting the religion of secular humanism, and then New Age religion." Newberry Medal (1987), ALA Notable Children's Book (1997), School Library Journal Best Book (1997) Adapted for big screen in 1985 & in 2007 by Disney.
