My first "long" novel read together with my 6 year old. He absolutely loved it and looked forward to reading another chapter each night.

It is a also great story to help explain common principles of life to a younger kid.

Published on October 15, 1952 - Charlotte's Web is a enjoyable children's novel written by American author E. B. White and illustrated by Garth Williams.

The novel tells the story of a livestock pig named Wilbur and his friendship with a barn spider named Charlotte. When Wilbur is in danger of being slaughtered by the farmer, Charlotte writes messages praising Wilbur (such as "Some Pig") in her web in order to persuade the farmer to let him live.

Written in White's dry, low-key manner - Charlotte's Web is considered to be a classic of children's literature, enjoyable to adults as well as children. This novel is listed as being one of the best-selling children's paperbacks of all time.

This is one book that I remember reading as a child; bonding with the characters, falling in love with Wilbur and the friendship of Charlotte. And now I have gotten to read this story with my children.

'Charlotte's Web' is a story which deals with the strong friendship that breaks the barrier between two very unrelated species, a spider and a pig.
One day a small and week pig was born. He's Wilbur. MR. Arable planned to kill him but his little daughter Fern stopped him. Therefore Wilbur could alive at MR. Zuckerman's barn. One day he heard that MR. Zuckerman is going to kill him. So Wilbur asked for a help to all animals. Spider Charlotte had an idea to protect Wilbur from death. The idea was to make a letter on her web. She wrote words like 'terrific' and 'some pig'. By doing so Wilbur became famous and made to participate at the fail with Charlotte. At that time Charlotte was almost dead because she's too old. But after she made egg sac she wrote word 'humble' and died. So Wilbur could get a prize. MR. Zuckerman was proud of WIlbur and decided to never eat or sell wilbur. After WIlber came back to the barn, he looked after Charlotte's children with great care and love.
I think Charlotte and Wilbur's actions were only possible because of their intimate relationship.
By looking at these two characters, we are able to realize what true friendship actually means. I was impressed when Charlotte tried to help Wilbur and thought another people more than herself.

"If Wilbur is killed and his trough stands empty day after day, you'll grow so thin we can look right through your stomach and see objects on the other side".
