Charlottes web

This was one of my favorite movies growing up. I remember watching it in school a few times as well. This is a story of friendship between a pig and a spider. Charlotte, the spider, is very ill and can't hang on very long. Wilbur, the pig, wants to help charlotte but does not know how to save her so he decides to save her children. Wilbur makes a deal with a rat who is a friend of his, and they are able to bring charlottes babies back to the farm. The ending was my favorite part of this story because it gives me a peaceful feeling. How the author reflects on Wilbur's triumph, and mentions that Wilbur was "well taken care of" proves this.

  1. I had a peaceful feeling at the end of the excerpt too. I think it's so peaceful because even though this horrible tragedy of Charlotte dying has happened, Wilbur can still have a happy life full of provision and Charlotte's offspring.
