Being a 5th grade teacher for 30 years, I'd read this book no fewer that 15 times to my students. Each reading, done orally, took me into a deeper understanding of the twists and turns and subtle nuances of the book. Being a Vietnam veteran and a father it was impossible to finish the book without weeping, unabashedly. The scene at the springhouse, at night, under the moon, making the connection with the inarticulate grandfather, Park understands what is consuming both he and his grandfather... the loss of the man they both so dearly loved... brings tears to my eyes yet again. Patterson outdoes herself in another book "Bridge to Terribithia"... another stellar intermediate books I found most beloved by my students and myself.
