300 Books Everyone Should Read at Least Once ~ Charlotte's Web

Charlotte's Web


E. B. White

Is there anyone out there who has never read Charlotte's Web?

This children's classic is a wonderful read for every age. It is the story of a runt pig named Wilbur who is being raised for slaughter. A little spider named Charlotte begins spinning words and phrases in her web that make Wilbur so special that the farmer decides to keep him.

Charlotte’s Web is not only a story about friendship, but also about a story about words and the difference they can make in someone's life. When fall arrives Charlotte knows her life is nearly done. She gives Wilbur her egg sac to look after.

The last lines of the book . . .

"Wilbur never forgot Charlotte. Although he loved her children and grandchildren dearly, none of the new spiders ever quite took her place in his heart. She was in a class by herself. It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer. Charlotte was both."
