Worth reading! Did you know that Mr Garth Williams also wrote a childrens' book, but in the USA it got....banned! Because he wrote about a white rabbit marrying a black rabbit. Imagine!!!! We are - I hope - past these times...
Publishers Weekly listed the book as the best-selling children's paperback of all time as of 2000.
Charlotte's Web by E. B. (Elwyn Brooks) White has everything you like about a book. It has friendship, love and caring. It is funny, serious, and sad. It was our first "class" chapter book. It touched us in a very special way. It made us laugh and cry and we loved to listen to it just like a treasure box. It ran through our minds like a hurricane and we'll never forget it. We didn't want to stop reading it. We loved Charlotte's Web! We hope you enjoy the work our second grade class did to create this web site.
P.S. If you've never read Charlotte's Web, you should!
