#AugustABC #Day9 #Innocence A pig named Wilbur may be one of the most innocent and sweet characters I‘ve ever had the pleasure to read. This was one of my favourite books growing up so of course it was one of the first middle grade books I bought for my granddaughter. Though I loved the character of Charlotte, she wasn‘t enough to overcome my arachnophobia unfortunately! If you haven‘t bought your little bookworms this book yet, do them a favour.
Charlotte‘s Web (TL) written by E.B White and illustrated by Garth Williams. This famous book tells the story of a pig name Wilbur and a spider named Charlotte. One day, Wilbur is in danger of being slaughtered. In an effort to save him, Charlotte writes notes in her web praising Wilbur in all sorts of ways! This cute story would make a great LC for older elementary school students.
This is an old classic I grew up reading as a young adult. Charlotte‘s Web is a TL, Newbery award winning book written by E.B. White. Diving deep into the understanding of friendship, Wilbur and Charlotte develop a close relationship. They are faced with many challenges on and off the barn and work together to conquer it all. Using this story as a SR, teachers can lead group discussions to dig deeper into the true meaning of friendship. EL...
This TL Newbery honor award novel written by E.B. White is a great addition to a classroom library. This story is about Fern and Wilbur who are great friends on Fern‘s family farm. She knows her dad must end Wilbur‘s life and she opposes it as best as she can. This is where Wilbur meets Charlotte, which leads to a friendship. Find out what happens when Charlotte doesn‘t return with Wilbur back to the farm from the fair! #UCFLAE3414SU19
I really enjoyed reading Charlotte‘s Web (RF) because it is a book about friendship and love. This book is about a spider named Charlotte, a pig named Wilbur and a girl named Fern who are all friends and help each other in beautiful ways.
The only story in the world that could make an arachnophobiac cry 🕸
The copy of the book i posses was owned by my father when he was a little boy and it was published in 1963
I confess I had never read this. I knew the story but never read it. It‘s a sweet book and a good story. If you really wanted to get down into it has a few good messages and the characters are fun. I love the geese. The sheep are jerks. All around good one. Short and quick read. #anotherclassicoffthelist
My next pick. Maybe not as heavy as my last few reads.
How can anyone not like this classic?! While I knew the story and had seen the movie(s) multiple times, I don‘t know that I‘d ever actually read this book. This was my boy‘s first chapter book that we read together. Love all the opportunities for vocab growth presented in the book without it being too overwhelming for early readers. My boy had already seen the movie and that helped his reading stamina...he knew what was coming...
This is the first chapter book I finished with my daughter. I had forgotten what a powerful story of friendship this is. It‘s full of selfless choices and loyalty. It also tackles serious themes, but does so with elegance, a no nonsense approach, and beautiful language. Beautiful and accessible for any age!
“This lovely world, these golden days.”
“‘You have been my friend,‘ replied Charlotte. ‘That in itself is a tremendous thing.‘”
Was thinking of going out to read on the deck and then noticed these HUNDREDS OF BABY SPIDERS on the screen door. I didn‘t notice them a few hours ago when I went to water the plants so I think they may have just hatched. AAAAAGHHHHH!!!!!
The celebration of special ladies rolls on this week as I welcome my *own* mom as a guest on my podcast for our first-ever Mother‘s Day episode! Mom (AKA Deb) joins to chat about one of the books we loved reading together most when I was growing up, E.B. White‘s Charlotte‘s Web. In the ep, we cover everything from the philosophical to the silly. This one is close to my heart and I‘m excited for you to tune in. Link to listen in bio! 🐽
My great grandmother (yes, "Great") died recently at the age of 99. I loved her dearly and though I know it was her time, I'm having some trouble accepting that she's gone.
Anyway, I was a reader for the funeral and at one point a spider was sitting on the microphone. I managed to handle that pretty well, but I felt like it was a message from my grandmother. It was a little nudge to reread this book.
This just goes straight to the heart. I remember watching the movie as a kid but I hadn't read it before now. I love Wilbur and all the other animal friends.
"Can I have a pig, too, Pop?" asked Avery.
"No, I only distribute pigs to early risers," said Mr. Arable. "Fern was up at daylight, trying to rid the world of injustice. As a result, she now has a pig. A small one, to be sure, but nevertheless a pig. It just shows what can happen if a person gets out of bed promptly. 
To Fern: You go, girl! I like to rid the world of injustice, too! ??
Charlotte‘s Web is a very famous and well liked RF novel. This Newberry award winning book follows a pig named Wilbur and a young girl named Fern who adopts him. The two develop a close bond and friendship early on in the book. The suddenly, Wilbur is sent to a new farm away from Fern. At this farm, Wilbur becomes friends with a spider named Charlotte.
This classic TL novel would be the perfect RA. I only know this, of course, because this is the first novel I can remember being read to me in school. I remember everyone getting a class copy, the smell of old books (is that a guilt pleasure for anyone else??) and most of all the illustrations. I found a great resource https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/unit-plans/teaching-content/charlottes-web-t... that could aid teachers in a RA.
At some point in our lives we will be given the opportunity to meet someone that we often misunderstood but actually is a good person through and through. That's charlotte, the arachnid fellow that befriended a lovely pig. She dedicated her life to helping her friend survive the world and left her legacy before departure.
Anyone have any audiobook recommendations for toddlers? We listen to audiobooks while we wash dishes together (him making a mess play washing) and cook dinner together (him Cutting fruits and veggies and eating) and I would like for him to actually realize something is playing in the background 😂 Audio books with voice changes etc?
A classic like no other. As you go into the mind of a young girl in and around her barn as she meets amazing and infighting animals. The animals talk to her and amongst themselves, this timely classic is not only a good read but a great place for a child to explore their imagination and truly paint a picture in their own head.
This story includes a little girl named Fern who adopts a pig named Wilbur. He was the runt of this liter so fern empathize with him and became his friend. The fantasy element in this story is animals that can communicate and have human like relationships. This story is a classic and should be incorporated in every classroom.
I read this book in second grade. As a child, you are captured by the simplicity of good friends and family. However, when you read this tale as an older person themes of life and death are beautifully strung together. I believe that this american classic should be loved and cherished by all.
