Library Lovers: BOTD #3

Charlotte's Web still to this day makes my Aunts cry.. it is the perfect tale for young readers about death and acceptance and plain just growing up.... it honest while still leaving the readers innocence in tact.

The story is just as much about a pig named Wilbur, as it is about a Spider named Charlotte. (the only spider I will EVER like too). The story begins when Wilbur is born as the runt of the litter and is about to be killed by the farmer until the farmers daughter Fern begs that he not be killed. Wilbur becomes her pets and lives a happy life with Fern until he is sold to another farmer and faces the same faint he did when he was a runt. He is going to be slaughtered, for Christmas dinner. Until is friend a clever spider named Charlotte starts writing clever messages above his stall in her web. This ultimately saving Wilbur and making him a special pig. Although, most of us know how the story ends, I will leave out the ending for those who may not have read it yet. Overall, it is a heart warming story and a story that all children must read, some point in there life.
