A Wrinkle in Time


Bibliographic Information: L’Engle, Madeleine. (1962) A Wrinkle in Time. New York, NY:  Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group, Inc..

Brief Annotation: When Meg Murray’s father disappears while experimenting with the 5th dimension of time, something doesn’t seem right. But when a mysterious man ends up in the Murray’s house talking about time travel and a tesseract, what Meg thought she knew about the world becomes obsolete.

Genre: Science Fiction

Grade Level: Grades 6-7

Readers who will like this: Imaginative students who ponder spacial possibilities like time travel will love this book. Girls will like that there can be a female heroine in a science fiction book.

Rating/Response: 8/10. A very interesting book that causes you to look at the world in a different light. L’Engle’s theories will make you second guess what is possible as far as time and space.

One question you would ask before a read aloud: If you could travel back in time, where would you go and what would you do?
