The author reminds us of friendship, hardship, and to open our eyes to the wonder and miracle often found in the simplest of things. What better lesson is there for a child to learn?

In this story, an affectionate, sometimes bashful pig named Wilbur befriends a spider named Charlotte, who lives in the rafters above his pen. A prancing, playful bloke, Wilbur is devastated when he learns of the destiny that befalls all those of porcine persuasion. Determined to save her friend, Charlotte spins a web that reads “Some Pig,” convincing the farmer and surrounding community that Wilbur is no ordinary animal and should be saved.

  1. Oktoberfest.

  2. Charlott’s Web is a classic that I’ve read to my kids. I like the plot and the rescuers woven into a tale that’s sweet. I recollect loving the moral of the story.

  3. My children and I loved this book! When my daughter was in third grade each child had to dress a part of a character in a their favorite book and then tell the class about the book. She dressed up as Fern from Charlotte’s Web. We also loved EB Whites’ Louis, the Trumpeter Swan and George Selden’s the Cricket in Times Square!

    OKTOBERFEST!!
