it was a touching movie. i didn’t know that spider can float in the air. amazing.

I never saw the movie, but have read the book at least a dozen times. It was the first chapter book read to me as a child. My sister, with whom I shared a room, read it to me at bedtime.

I had the joy of reading to sponges (children) sitting at my feet in a kindergarten classroom. I loved to watch the story draw them in — leave them wanting another chapter. EB White weaved in so many good lessons with Wilbur and Charlotte.
