Paterson writes ~ I think it was Lewis who said something like: “The book cannot be what the writer is not.” What you are will shape your book whether you want it to or not. I am Christian, so that conviction will pervade the book even when I make no conscious effort to teach or preach. Grace and hope will inform everything I write.
We loved the film. We laughed, we cried ( well, I cried), we enjoyed.
Although we have read the novel, watching the film has inspired me to read the book again.
And I have followed a little rabbit trail ~ perhaps we can have some Terabithian inspired homeschool time?
