Charlotte's Web 1953 Honor Book *****

Charlotte's Web is about a pig named Wilbur that is saved by Fern from certain death, only to discover that his days are numbered on Zuckerman's Farm. Charlotte, a common gray spider, comes to the rescue and his life is saved for a second time. Wilbur then learns that Charlotte's life is ending but he can't return the favor.

I listened to this book on tape read by the author E.B. White. At first it was distracting to hear about life on a farm read with a Boston accent, but soon I just settled in to listen to the story. It's such a sweet story but also powerful. What are we willing to do for a friend? This a great book to inspire children's imagination and to teach them about sacrifice and friendship. I think this book should be in everyone's personal library.
