Charolette's Web
Charlotte's Web - Garth Williams,E.B. White,Kate DiCamillo

This book is a definite heart jerker. It's about a little girl, Fern, and a runt piglet she saves from her dad. Fern raises the piglet she names Wilbur until her father forces him out to the barn where is care is then taken over by a very ambitious spider. Together with the help of a rat, they do amazing things to ensure Wilbur gets to live a long and healthy life. I would recommend this book for 3rd grade and up. There are so many fun ways to use this book in the classroom. Depending on the grade level, I would love to use this book to do things like an indepth group book analysis (age appropriate) or individual book reports or even have the students use mixed media to create their own word web. 

Reading Level: 2nd grade to 6th grade

This is a good book for the older grades, it teaches so many good lessons for that age. It is a great book to teach on friendships and sticking up for each other. The Lexile is 680L.

Charlotte's Web - E.B. White,Garth Williams I read this first in year four and well, you know what school does to books. It took us weeks to finish it, after slow reading aloud sessions and they gave us special exercise books to fill out, turning reading into a tiresome chore where we learnt nothing at all relevant.

I re-read it a couple of years ago out of curiosity. It's a lovely little children's story that I still enjoyed even now.

It is about a pig, the runt of the litter who is adopted by the farmer's daughter who takes an interest in wanting to save its life. He is fed and lived in the barn (or shed?) with the company of the other animals who inhabited the farm - including the resident rat.

The pig grows up happily eating as much food as possible, growing nice and fat. And then he learns through the other animals, that pigs are eaten for food! Scared about being eaten the poor pig becomes sick with fear, until a spider named Charlotte drops down from her web and comes up with a clever plan...
