Charlotte's Web

Charlotte's Web - E.B. White, Garth Williams, Rosemary Wells One of the most important books a child can read. It teaches the reader valuable lessons and it is one of those books that make a mark on your mind.

Content. When reading this book (well for most of it) that's how I would describe how I feel. It's sort of a passive feeling, but it's happy nonetheless. It made me subconsciously reflect on the importance of friendship, standing up for what you believe in and reminded me that you can find friends in the most unusual places.

At the sad parts, the book made me feel this most wonderful feeling and the only words I can think of to describe it is sort of a beautiful sadness. The sort of sadness you feel okay with. I guess you can only understand what I mean if you've felt it before.

A part of this book that always stood out to me was at the SPOILER bit at the end. When Wilbur realises how much Charlotte has done for him, and he so little in return. Charlotte replies telling him that he has been her friend, and that was more than anything she could ask for.

All and all, this book was extremely beautiful and I feel it is an essential bedtime story for children. (However, I do believe this book is not restricted for children, all ages would enjoy this book.)
