Charlotte's Web is a book I've been aware of for nearly 40 years but somehow managed to avoid reading when I was little. We picked it up at the hospice last week and read the first half, then had to buy a copy at Waterstones yesterday to finish it off (59 years in print and it's still selling for £6.99 in pap ...more
My thoughts in a nutshell
Charlotte’s Web is one of my favorite childhood books. I watched it so many times and never got bored with it.
The story is about…
Skip over this point if you don't like the sneak peek.
A little pig who wants to see the first show and who wants to live instead of becoming sausages.
What impressed me the most 😊
This little story has many important feelings and lesson. It teaches us to respect other living creatures and how to live side by side in peace. It told about humility and explained how imsausages.about…Skipit.The ...more

Charlotte, a spider
I always get in the mood for this book when county fair season rolls around. Ah, the midway with it's dizzying rides and scary carny folk. The agriculture buildings featuring prize-winning giant produce and lovingly crafted quilts. And the yummy scents of frying dough competing with the much earthier smells emanating from the livestock tents.
It smelled of hay and it smelled of manure. It smelled of the perspiration of tired horses and the wonderful swetents.It."Charlotte, ...more

Wilbur's life is nearly idyllic until he discovers the fate that has been woven for him: he will likely be the next Christmas ham. Horrified, he looks desperately for a door of escape. His pleas for help are o ...more

'I don't deserve it. I've never done anything for you.'
'You have been my friend,' replied Charlotte. 'That in itself is a tremendous thing.”
Wilbur is some pig who is Radiant and humble. On the top of that, he could do a mean back flip like the Karate Kid.
But would you believe me if I said that this radiant pig was almost killed..... twice? This is Wilbur's remarkable journey from almost being b ...more
This is quite ridiculous, that I should read this, at 42-years-old, for the third time in my life, and end up blubbering ho ...more
This well-known classic kids’ book is all it’s cracked up to be. Charlotte is the nicest, wisest spider you’ll ever meet. Wish I could think of sweet Charlotte the next time I see a creepy crawly spider, but I’m sure the memory of her will go right out the window and I’ll run for my life, as always!
Everyone should read this book. Well, probably every one has. But true confession here: When my teacher read the book to our class over a few weeks, my 8-year-old self daydreame ...more
How I feel about spiders when I see one in my house:
But I really do love this book. Charlotte A. Cavatica, you will live on my heart forever.

Understanding life and death, the cycle of life, is never an easy experience. Since very little we hear about death and we learn about people and things being born, the two extremes of that cycle. But learning is not understanding.
Later, we perhaps get a baby brother or sister, as it was for me, or the neighbor's cat has kittens and one of those kittens comes to live in our house, to be out four-legged companion. And we start to unders ...more
Here is a mini recap of what I thought each time I read it...
4th Grade: Poor piggy! I'm glad he found a nice spider friend. I'm so sad that Charlotte died at the end! But I still hate spiders.
8th Grade: I guess it is a really good outlook on growing up ...more
These lines made me breakdown : "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."
One of the best stories of friendship I have ever read.

Young and adult readers will definitely appreciate and enjoy reading this. If you have time to read this one of a kind story, I highly recommend to squeeze it to your reading list.
Friendship, love, honesty, helping hands, utilizing your talent for a greater good, never giving up, keeping hopes high, embrace what life throws at you because in the end, things are going to be wonderful and if they not, then the ending is yet to come.
I loved Charlotte's Web very much. I recommend it to people of each age group.
I distinctly remember my grade one teacher, Doris Wright, reading Charlotte’s Web to us, a chapter or two per day. I suspect there was some snivelling when we reached the end of the tale.
Boy, could I identify with the main human character, Fern. I grew up on a small farm like the ones in the book (without the work horses—we used tractors during my childhood) and it was primarily a hog farm. I was very familiar with how sweet baby pigs are. In ...more
This book teaches us about love and friendship. It teaches us to celebrate life. These are lessons we are never too old to be reminded of.
