message 1: by Jackie (new)

Jackie Of Mice and Men has to be number one as far as a literary canon goes.

But for children I would have to say Bridge to Terabithia or Number the Stars, the bond of friendship is so strong as to almost be tangible.

Lastly, I do agree that Charlotte's Web, by far, reaches out to any age group as to what friendship is and the lengths one will go to save a friend.
