60th Anniversary of Charlotte’s Web

60th Anniversary of Charlotte’s Web

Charlotte's WebSixty years ago, on October 15, 1952, E.B. White’s Charlotte’s Web was published. It’s been a favorite ever since.

If you like Wilbur and Charlotte and the rest of the animals in Uncle Homer’s barn, you might like some of these stories that give animals voices and give YOU a peek into their world. I wonder every day what my dog might be thinking. I like these stories that imagine what an animal might think and if it could talk, what it would say to its friends. I especially like these stories when the animals become a character I can love. Who would have thought a spider could be as lovable as Charlotte? In these stories mice, a cricket, a cat, a rabbit & even a gorilla let us know what might be going on in their furry heads and in their beating hearts (which is what they have in common with US!)
