Best Book Quotes. Charlotte was both.









“Wilbur never forgot Charlotte. Although he loved her children and grandchildren dearly, none of the new spiders ever quite took her place in his heart. She was in a class by herself. It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer. Charlotte was both.”




Encourage one another,
Donna

    Aww, that's the sweetest. Maybe Sophie and I will have to watch that movie this weekend.

    I hope Katie is feeling better this morning. That just stinks. Sophia caught a cold the last two weeks of school. It was mainly a terrible cough that lasted about 3 weeks. She made it through the whole school year without getting anything until the end. She finally kicked the cough. She just woke up one morning and it was gone. : )

    The pictures were cute yesterday!

  4. Sarah, she's still sleeping. She had fever last night and was beat. We can't wait for this to pass. We tried the Vicks on feet last night.

    We used to have Pig Day at our library years ago. I would wear my pig vest and read pig stories. Charlotte's Web was always the most popular pig book.

    Praying for you Katie to get well soon.
    love and prayers, jep

      Emma, I will gladly send you a picture of it and if you like it I will mail it to you. I have somewhat outgrown it...those were the days of a skinny me. ;-)

  7. So sweet. Reading that book out loud to a classroom of 1st graders is impossible. I cried.

  8. I hope Katie is feeling better. Garth Williams' illustrations for Charlotte's Web and the Little House series made him a favorite from way back when. And E.B. White's words, well, they are so sweet and true.

  10. When I was very little, I underlined this passage and told my mom that when I died I wanted it on my grave. I was that sort of kid. Not sure how it made her feel.
