Charlotte's Web
Written by E. B. White

1952 ***** 184 pages

Charlotte's Web has always been very, very important to me. I loved the book and movie when I was a child, and I played Templeton in the play in middle school. Revisiting the book as an adult, I was still completely enraptured in its tale of a pig named Wilbur and his fight to not be turned into bacon and ham. Everyone, even arachnophobics, loves Charlotte, the spider with heart who does everything she can to save Wilbur's life. It's a book for all ages to read together and cherish again and again.
