A prancing, playful bloke, Wilbur is devastated when he learns of the destiny that befalls all those of porcine persuasion. Determined to save her friend, Charlotte spins a web that reads “Some Pig,” convincing the farmer and surrounding community that Wilbur is no ordinary animal and should be saved. In this story of friendship, hardship, and the passing on into time, E.B. White reminds us to open our eyes to the wonder and miracle often found in the simplest of things.

I loved this book as a child and I enjoy reading it aloud to my second grade class and they love it as well. It’s very well written. The story is about Wilbur, a runt pig whose life is spared by Fern, the farmer’s daughter. Fern loves Wilbur and takes good care of him but later she is forced to sell him to Uncle Homer, who plans on fattening him up and killing him. Wilbur tries to get the other animals to help spare him and it’s Charlotte the spider who comes up with a plan to save him by spelling out words in her webs that make people want to come see this pig and ultimately saves him. Sadly, Charlotte dies at the end. The story teaches several really great lessons: 1. Caring more about others than yourself 2. That sometimes the most unlikely people (spiders in this case) can become friends and come through for you to teach you the real meaning of friendship and 3. Death happens to everyone. This book is such a classic and a fantastic read!
