There are so many awesome themes in this book. We read it with our grade three book club. I was a little leery to read it with them. I wasn't sure they were old enough. I can't remember how old I was when I first read A Wrinkle in Time, but I do remember that I didn't really understand it and didn't enjoy it that much. When our book club met, after reading it, I was pleasantly surprised with the number of children who read it. Not only that, we had an amazing discussion. Lesson learned. Don't underestimate!
It was a great introduction to science fiction.
Themes: love, courage, working together, being proud to be yourself, individuality, love conquers all and more.
Later we watched the movie as well. That is an intense movie. It made me want to read the book again!
