Charlotte's Web - audio book

Yesterday Marley, Sam, and I had to drive to Atlanta to get Karin from the airport. On the way there and back we listened to E.B. White read his classic, Charlotte's Web.

Although I read this book several times as a child, and several more times as an adult, listening to E.B. White read it was like enjoying it for the first time. It certainly made the drive to Atlanta and back easy to take. We all laughed at the appropriate places, and I got a lump in my throat when Charlotte died and again later when her babies hatched and three remained with Wilbur.

Marley and Sam liked the book, too.

Oh I love the book. I did a whole unit many years ago with my gifted class - teaching higher level thinking skills and doing all sorts of things with spider studies. The kids had to design and draw the plans for a "proper" home for Charlotte and then they also had to write the script and make a video of them reporting on Charlotte's activities.

We have only one book on tape and it is Charlotte's Web read by Mr. White.

Such a gruff voice.
