terabithia.jpgMom Jodi picks the beloved tearjerker Bridge to Terabithia. Katherine Paterson's classic story of Jess and Leslie, who create their own kingdom in the woods, is popular reading in schools, was a Trophy Newbery, and has been made into a movie.

"This book is my favorite because when it was read to me as a child, it began my love affair with reading," Jodi says. "It brought me to another world of imagination."

What book has opened you or your child's minds to other worlds?

I wasn't really a reader as a kid--I had a hard time with phonics and didn't really feel that drive to read. That is until I picked up Dear Mr. Henshaw by Beverly Cleary in sixth grade. I had just moved and was lonely, so it was the first time I really connected with a character on a personal level. Dear Mr. Henshaw turn on my love for reading.
