Slice of Life Reading and Writing
Charlotte's Web is the story of a little girl named Fern who loved a little pig named Wilbur—and of Wilbur's dear friend Charlotte A. Cavatica, a beautiful large grey spider who lived with Wilbur in the barn. Charlotte saved Wilbur with the help of Templeton, the rat who never did anything for anybody unless there was something in it for him, and by a wonderfully clever plan of her own. There are forty-seven black-and-white drawings by Garth Williams in this book.

I loved the first Chapter of Charlotte's Web! I was really scared at first when Fern's brother had an axe. I thought Wilbur was a goner!
