Charlotte's Web illustration will appear here.

This story is about a pig named Wilbur that lived in a barn with other farm animals. Wilbur became very sad and scared when he found out he would be killed and eaten. As a result, Charlotte, a spider from the barn cellar decided to help her friend Wilbur. Charlotte decided to write creative things on her web about Wilbur, so that the owners would not kill him. Charlotte wrote many clever things about Wilbur and everyone thought it was a miracle and that Wilbur was a great pig. Charlotte dies at the end of the story, but she did save Wilbur's life.

I liked this story because of Charlotte, the spider that saved Wilbur. She's my favorite character because she was very nice to others. Charlotte helped Wilbur because Wilbur was almost killed. Charlotte reminds me of my mom because my mom is also very nice and helpful to me and to others.

I think other students should read this story because it is about being nice and kind to others.
