    I don't give a fig if it is a kid's book, Charlotte's Web is one of the most well-crafted stories ever written. This classic children's tale deserves 5 stars for story craft and language usage alone! (Read your Strunk & White to understand this man's talents in that regard.) The fa...

    One of the great tear-jerkers of my long-lost childhood, the unlikely friendship between a spider and a pig makes for wonderful reading and a shared moment of love when reading it to kids. It is tender and teaches the values of constancy and integrity in a light, beautiful prose. A cla...

    If you've never read Charlotte's Web by E.B. White, you are utterly missing out on a classic Newbery Honor award winner. Go to the library now and borrow this book first published in 1952. You shouldn't buy it (unless you have children or are giving it as a present), but choose to embr...

    'pologies to anybody following my reviews in hope of insights into epic fantasy novels - I get through more kids' stuff reading to my little girl (who is too disabled to do it for herself). Charlotte's Web is a book I've been aware of for nearly 40 years but somehow managed to avoi...

    ". . . this lovely world, these precious days . . ." Charlotte, a spider I always get in the mood for this book when county fair season rolls around. Ah, the midway with it's dizzying rides and scary carny folk. The agriculture buildings featuring prize-winning giant produce and lo...

    Happy to see there's a book out there not representing spiders as being dreadful creatures. Super sweet story. ...

    I have been familiar with the story for most of my life, but never read it until now. Wilbur the pig is born a runt, and the farmer decides he must face the axe. Kind-hearted little Fern intercedes and saves him. She cares for the undersized pig, who later goes to a nearby farm. Wil...

    'I don't deserve it. I've never done anything for you.' 'You have been my friend,' replied Charlotte. 'That in itself is a tremendous thing.? Wilbur is some pig who is Radiant and humble. On the top of that, he could do a mean back flip like the Karate Kid. But would ...

    I grew up without reading this book. For some, that seems to be unimaginable. I can maybe understand why. My wife and I are reading it now, or I should say, I am reading it aloud before bed, and it's really wonderful. I could totally see why it would be a kind of life-formative book. I...

    One of my favorite childhood memories is of reading this book with my mother. I remember how much I giggled at some of the funny situations and cried especially when we read it the first few times. Sobbing into my pillow with my mom rubbing my back I wondered why Charlotte had to die. ...

    As I now join the million's of readers who have enjoyed this great book, I realize it truly is a book for ALL ages. Loved every minute of it! ...

    How I feel about spiders when I read Charlotte's Web: How I feel about spiders when I see one in my house: But I really do love this book. Charlotte A. Cavatica, you will live on my heart forever. ...

    Within 3 minutes of reviewing its Top 100 Novels Written in English List, I knew The Modern Library was irrelevant. That's because it failed to include CHARLOTTE'S WEB. I mean, I realize that children's literature is considered a joke by most intellectuals, but get serious. Anybody who...

    It may sound weird but this is the first time I am reading this book. I don?t know how I missed out on it when I was a kid. Maybe it was the Famous 5 or Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew. Anyway, if I had read it as a kid I might have mustered some sympathy for Wilbur. Right now though, I am ...

    I have been listening to or reading Charlotte's Web since 1983. My first grade teacher, Mrs. Bunting, read this magical book to our class, and I can vividly remember sitting on my carpet square, entranced. Her reading that book to our class was the highlight of each day. Later that yea...

    Charlotte's Web, E.B. White Charlotte's Web is a children's novel by American author E. B. White and illustrated by Garth Williams; it was published in October 15, 1952, by Harper & Brothers. The novel tells the story of a pig named Wilbur and his friendship with a barn spider nam...

    I could not stop myself from crying. I literally had tears in my eyes after I finished reading it. Charlotte was such a sweetheart. And Wilbur's innocence made him look cuter. These lines made me breakdown : "She was in a class by herself. It is not often that someone comes along who ...

    Saw the movie adaptation of this classic children's book a decade ago so I'm already familiar with the story. What I like about this book is how it reminds everyone about friendship, compassion, humility, courage, respect, gratitude; and even the concept of life and death was tackled. ...

    I read this book three times and my opinion of the book has changed each time. The importance of this? Just think how complex and well written a book is if you can take different meanings from a novel at different stages of your life. Here is a mini recap of what I thought each tim...

    I could not stop myself from crying. I literally had tears in my eyes after I finished reading it. Charlotte was such a sweetheart. And Wilbur's innocence made him look cuter. These lines made me breakdown : "She was in a class by herself. It is not often that someone comes along who ...

    One of the great tear-jerkers of my long-lost childhood, the unlikely friendship between a spider and a pig makes for wonderful reading and a shared moment of love when reading it to kids. It is tender and teaches the values of constancy and integrity in a light, beautiful prose. A cla...

    If you've never read Charlotte's Web by E.B. White, you are utterly missing out on a classic Newbery Honor award winner. Go to the library now and borrow this book first published in 1952. You shouldn't buy it (unless you have children or are giving it as a present), but choose to embr...

    'pologies to anybody following my reviews in hope of insights into epic fantasy novels - I get through more kids' stuff reading to my little girl (who is too disabled to do it for herself). Charlotte's Web is a book I've been aware of for nearly 40 years but somehow managed to avoi...

    ". . . this lovely world, these precious days . . ." Charlotte, a spider I always get in the mood for this book when county fair season rolls around. Ah, the midway with it's dizzying rides and scary carny folk. The agriculture buildings featuring prize-winning giant produce and lo...

    Happy to see there's a book out there not representing spiders as being dreadful creatures. Super sweet story. ...

    I have been familiar with the story for most of my life, but never read it until now. Wilbur the pig is born a runt, and the farmer decides he must face the axe. Kind-hearted little Fern intercedes and saves him. She cares for the undersized pig, who later goes to a nearby farm. Wil...

    'I don't deserve it. I've never done anything for you.' 'You have been my friend,' replied Charlotte. 'That in itself is a tremendous thing.? Wilbur is some pig who is Radiant and humble. On the top of that, he could do a mean back flip like the Karate Kid. But would ...

    ...

    I grew up without reading this book. For some, that seems to be unimaginable. I can maybe understand why. My wife and I are reading it now, or I should say, I am reading it aloud before bed, and it's really wonderful. I could totally see why it would be a kind of life-formative book. I...

    One of my favorite childhood memories is of reading this book with my mother. I remember how much I giggled at some of the funny situations and cried especially when we read it the first few times. Sobbing into my pillow with my mom rubbing my back I wondered why Charlotte had to die. ...

    As I now join the million's of readers who have enjoyed this great book, I realize it truly is a book for ALL ages. Loved every minute of it! ...

    No words I can say but this book is magical and beautiful and everyone should read it... a truly wonderful tale :) <3 ...

    How I feel about spiders when I read Charlotte's Web: How I feel about spiders when I see one in my house: But I really do love this book. Charlotte A. Cavatica, you will live on my heart forever. ...

    Within 3 minutes of reviewing its Top 100 Novels Written in English List, I knew The Modern Library was irrelevant. That's because it failed to include CHARLOTTE'S WEB. I mean, I realize that children's literature is considered a joke by most intellectuals, but get serious. Anybody who...

    It may sound weird but this is the first time I am reading this book. I don?t know how I missed out on it when I was a kid. Maybe it was the Famous 5 or Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew. Anyway, if I had read it as a kid I might have mustered some sympathy for Wilbur. Right now though, I am ...

    I have been listening to or reading Charlotte's Web since 1983. My first grade teacher, Mrs. Bunting, read this magical book to our class, and I can vividly remember sitting on my carpet square, entranced. Her reading that book to our class was the highlight of each day. Later that yea...

    Charlotte's Web, E.B. White Charlotte's Web is a children's novel by American author E. B. White and illustrated by Garth Williams; it was published in October 15, 1952, by Harper & Brothers. The novel tells the story of a pig named Wilbur and his friendship with a barn spider nam...

    I could not stop myself from crying. I literally had tears in my eyes after I finished reading it. Charlotte was such a sweetheart. And Wilbur's innocence made him look cuter. These lines made me breakdown : "She was in a class by herself. It is not often that someone comes along who ...

    Saw the movie adaptation of this classic children's book a decade ago so I'm already familiar with the story. What I like about this book is how it reminds everyone about friendship, compassion, humility, courage, respect, gratitude; and even the concept of life and death was tackled. ...

    I read this book three times and my opinion of the book has changed each time. The importance of this? Just think how complex and well written a book is if you can take different meanings from a novel at different stages of your life. Here is a mini recap of what I thought each tim...

    This was one of my favorite books as a kid and I always felt bad for Charlotte that people saw the spider web that said "some pig" and were instantly impressed with the pig... not the super intelligent spider who could spell. Anyways, I had a weird love for Templeton the rat and sti...

    What a delightful book! Friendship, love, honesty, helping hands, utilizing your talent for a greater good, never giving up, keeping hopes high, embrace what life throws at you because in the end, things are going to be wonderful and if they not, then the ending is yet to come. ...

    It took me almost one year to realize that I have loved this book all along. ...

    ***Wanda?s Summer Carnival of Children?s Literature*** I distinctly remember my grade one teacher, Doris Wright, reading Charlotte?s Web to us, a chapter or two per day. I suspect there was some snivelling when we reached the end of the tale. Boy, could I identify with the ma...

    Charlotte's Web is a tender children's story with sweet insights about life, growing up, and mortality. It's a privilege to open a book and hear the timber of a gifted writer, whose voice was so simple that one wonders why this book was not hatched decades earlier. The author's voice ...

    An endearing tale from childhood., I grew up watching the animated movie every year. Once I had my daughter, I knew I had to buy this book for her. Now that she's grown, I decided I needed a copy for myself. This book teaches us about love and friendship. It teaches us to celebrate l...

    "Charlotte's Web" is SOME BOOK! A childhood favorite of mine. Brings back wonderful memories for me. A classic! :) ...
