How did I get it?:
Charlotte’s Web is the classic children’s story by E B White.
The tale of how a little girl named Fern, with the help of a friendly spider, saved her pig Wilbur from the usual fate of nice fat little pigs.
This was one of Beth’s choices for our Kid-Lit Challenge. I guess this is where I admit that I’d never read it before! Oops! Well, I’ve read it now, that’s the main thing.
I thought Charlotte’s Web was a cute story that can be enjoyed by adults and children alike. It’s an engaging story which is easy to read. It’s one I can imagine parents can pass their love of down to their own children. It is easy to see why it is a classic.
Charlotte’s Web teaches lessons about friendship, compassion, change and death. It deals with these subjects in a way in which children can understand. I liked how the book wasn’t patronising. It told the story in a honest way without talking down to its readership.
It’s a very charming book which is worth a read or a re-read! To check out Bibliobeth’s review, visit her blog HERE.
