Don&;t miss one of America&;s top 100 most-loved novels, selected by PBS&;s The Great American Read. This beloved book by E. B.

This paperback edition includes a foreword by two-time Newbery winning author Kate DiCamillo. This middle grade novel is an excellent choice for tween readers in grades 5 to 6, especially during homeschooling. It&;s a fun way to keep your child entertained and engaged while not in the classroom. Some Pig. Humble. Radiant. These are the words in Charlotte's Web, high up in Zuckerman's barn. Charlotte's spiderweb tells of her feelings for a little pig named Wilbur, who simply wants a friend. They also express the love of a girl named Fern, who saved Wilbur's life when he was born the runt of his litter. E. B. White's Newbery Honor Book is a tender novel of friendship, love, life, and death that will continue to be enjoyed by generations to come. It contains illustrations by Garth Williams, the acclaimed illustrator of E. B. White's Stuart Little and Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House series, among many other books.
