Charlotte's Web by E.B. White is a classic children's book that no child should miss reading. It is the story of Charlotte, the spider, who befriends Wilbur, the pig, who is doomed to become someone's dinner.


Fern, the farmer's daughter, takes Wilbur, the runt of the litter, and keeps him as her pet until he is sold to a neighboring farmer to "fatten" him up. Fern continues to visit Wilbur daily and makes friends with all the barnyard animals, including Templeton, the rat.


Charlotte teaches Wilbur much about life and promises to help save him. This is a story about love and true friendship.
