it was amazing

“Charlotte’s Web” was written for children, but includes several life lessons that sometimes we only learn as adults. A spider saves a young pig from slaughter by writing “Some Pig” in her web, then proceeds to live out her life with the pig before dying herself, and then leaving behind her children who are taken care of by the pig she saved. The story is a classic, and is so well-written that few compare. It is the life lessons present in this book, such as helping and befriending others, that inspires me as an aspiring writer to work on including this in my own stories. It’s important for books written for children to have a lesson included, to teach the child something about the world. Seeing the importance and the flawlessness in the execution of it in this story has led me to read this book several times in an effort to grasp the nuances of how White writes the life lesson, and has led me to attempt to use it in my own writing.
