Bridge to Terabithia, by Ketherine Paterson, develops with imagination of two children. The imaginary world that Bridge to Terabithia holds is very realistic imagination hoping for this choking reality to be better. Inside the story, trust and positive are necessary. The story tells readers that the world depends on how we imagine. The world could be full of monsters or it could be a magical land with magnificence and beauty. There is no fantasy world for Jesse because he never opened a door of his mind. However, as he starts to open that door, the world of fantasy starts to exist. Everything depends on how the person makes up his mind. Bridge to Terabithia tells the importance of dreaming with trust and a positive attitude, and inside it, Jesse becomes more mature step by step.
Children’s literature such as Harry Potter or The Chronicles of Narnia all have the world of magic.
