Cover of: Charlotte's Web | E. B. White

About the Book

This is the book which turned me into both a book lover, and an English Major, at age 5. My sister, who was 8 at the time, had checked it out and asked my mother to read it aloud to her. I listened in, and was hooked from the first page. As soon as I could comprehend the basics of reading, this is the book I read, more than any other. The story (Talking animals! Friendly spiders!) is down-home, laugh-out-loud funny, but also charming and slighly sad, but still optimistic, at it's conclusion. While children who have never experienced farm life may not understand some of the details, the pace of the story is quick enough to keep everyone entertained, one chapter at a time.

Please, if you need the "perfect book" to read to a child who loves animals, Charlotte's Web would be a great choice!

First Sentence
