Cute book about friendship! I'm sure I would have loved it as a kid! If you've never read 'pologies to anybody following my reviews in hope of insights into epic fantasy novels I get throughkids' stuff reading to my little girl (who is too disabled to do it for herself) 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 paperback!)The book's a classic for good reason It delivers an emotional but refreshingly unsentimental story with twists and turns, and inadvertently lets us have a look at rural American life in the late 1940's In addition to a strong and engaging story E.B White has powerful prose that doesn't confuse a child, but carriesweight than you're likely to see in most children's stories.There's a circle of life theme going on, the amusing and varied anthropomorphising of various animals, a county show and prizes to be awarded, oh my! But putting a welcome edge on all this is the bald fact that the pig you can see on the cover is balanced on a constant knife edge with people gearing up to reduce him to bacon and ham at every turn And although there are tender moments in the story, it's never saccharine *slight spoiler* the rat never comes through with a change of heart, the little girl grows up and loses interest in the animals *end slight spoiler*All in all a fine children's book Perhaps it I'd read it when I was 7 I'd be giving it 5*It also contains the saddest line in children's fiction:(view spoiler)[No one was with her when she died (hide spoiler)] 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 important it is to have a great friendship A friend who does anything to saved her little buddy’s life A friend who once made a promise and now she will go through fire and water to keep her word.I’ve become such a sensitive little girl if the story is about an animal’s death I’m feeling sorry about all of them In my world, I think they have soul and they are sentinent beings This book is an amazing classic, and it made me emotional Haha Make a conclusion I gave it 5 stars because it is perfect for me It has a much valuable lesson and I really appreciate it I recommend it to everyone who hasn’t read it Wait a second! Why don’t you read it yet? Go to the library, NOW! Or watch the movie I recommend it too Atmosphere collage aka how did I imagine the book vibes? One of the great tearjerkers of my longlost childhood, the unlikely friendship between a spider and a pig makes for wonderful reading and a shared moment of love when reading it to kids It is tender and teaches the values of constancy and integrity in a light, beautiful prose A classic and a masterpiece. Another classic read with the kids! I love reading to them – they enjoy a chapter every evening and it gives us some good, quality family time Also, it is cool to see them disappointed if we don’t have time to read (sad, but cool that it is so important to them!)If you don’t remember Charlotte’s Web from your childhood, did you even have a childhood?While it is dated – evenso now than when I read it as a kid – it is a timeless tale of life, death, and friendship There are so many amazingly deep facets in this little book written for children I am pretty sure a group of adults could still have a very deep discussion about the themes, plot points, and characters in this book.I mentioned that death is a key part of this book Some may think that could be too much for kids But I feel like White presented it in the perfect way to show that death and rebirth are a part of life; perfect in a way as to not upset kids and allow them to explore their curiosity on the subject.If you have never read Charlotte’s Web, you really should!

My 8 years old self would have loved this book, I had been looking for an excuse to read this book for years and just realised on seeing it this week in a book shop that I didn't need an excuse to read it, I can just pick it up and indulge myself in little animal behaviour and so I enjoyed this beautiful story of a livestock pig named Wilbur and his friendship with a barn spider named Charlotte This book is so beautifully written and the illustrations in the copy I have just made it that much better Friendship and love are the central themes of Charlotte's Web, This is a terrific children's book which I think many adults like myself will appreciate the story as well and I am going to hold on to this copy as I hope if the future (long distant future) to take it out again and perhaps read to my grand children.I seem to have missed out on so many of these great books that I should have read as a child but as the saying goes better late than never and so nice to choose one to read every now and then.
