Happy Birthday Charlotte and Wilbur!
It was 60 years ago today that the classic Charlotte's Web by E.B. White was published. How lucky are we? To hear more information, check out this report from NPR this morning.
My favorite line is at the very end of the book.
"It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer. Charlotte was both."
Happy birthday to the entire family at Mr. Zuckerman's farm!
I don't know how I missed this post. To this day, I remember Charlotte and NEVER kill a spider.ReplyDelete
The reading of this book by my third grade teacher, Mrs. Stinson, is what made me find the magic of reading. Forty-six years later, I still remember begging for one more chapter!
I still look for "Good Pig" in the spider webs around my home.
