Back of the Book Blurb:
These are the words in Charlotte’s web, high in the barn. Her spiderweb tells of her feelings for a little pig named Wilbur, as well as the feelings of a little girl named Fern … who loves Wilbur, too. Their love has been shared by millions of readers.
I figured I should go ahead and read the entire book, since my 9yo son as done so, and I had only read excerpts here and there. I enjoyed the story a lot, and it is easy to see why kids love it. It’s well written, has a great story line (with talking animals!), and it ends on a positive note even as Charlotte dies.
There are books I missed out on as a child (and read as an adult) that make me wish I had experienced them as a child. This is one of those books, and it makes me glad that my son has not missed out.
