I wish I knew this book existed before I checked out the original Charlotte's Web. My 3 yr old could *not* sit through the original book & I knew he was a bit young for it but I hoped for the best. I really wanted to read it to him since I remembered liking the book & I didn't want to wait until he was 6 or older to *finally* be able to read it to him so I checked it out & what a mistake. He was not interested in the original book at all & after a few chapters of yelling at him t ...more

It looks like they are doing to "Charlotte's Web" exactly what they did with the "Little House" series: breaking out each chapter of the original books into a picture-heavy, simple-sentence book that young toddlers can enjoy, and parents don't have to wait until the kids are older to share their favorite childhood books with them. I found this first book in what I assume will be a series faithful to the original, and simple enough for my 2 1/2 year olds to enjoy. And given how many times they as ...more

If you read and loved Charlotte's Web and can't wait to experience with your child or grandchild that is to young for it. Then you will love this book. It doesn't explain Charlotte or get that far into the story but it's perfect at explaining about Wilber and Fern's friendship. If your child listens-reads this then you can tell them there is 'more' and they'll can't help but want to read the full version. The illustrations are great as well. My almost 3 year old granddaughter loved this story an ...more

Utilizing much of E.B. White's original language, this picture book tells the story of Fern raising Wilbur as a piglet until being sold to her Uncle. The story ends before the reader meets Charolette, the spider, but the tale of a young girl and her pet pig is very satisfying even without knowing the rest of the story.

Was hoping for a short introduction to Charlotte's Web for my little ones, and it was a nice story with lovely pictures until I ended abruptly and awkwardly. I actually wondered if I was missing some pages because it was such a strange ending, and I do not plan to read it again.

I was surprised by how far from the classic this book is. Cute pictures, but none of the beauty of the chapter book.

Awesome.

This had beautiful illustrations and the story was good, but you had to know the story already and it ended abruptly.
