Book Review: "Charlotte's Web"

I hadn't read Charlotte's Web for years, but I thought it might be worth taking along on vacation to read to the little cousins in the evenings should they be inclined to sit still long enough for a few pages. Little did I know they'd demand so many pages each night that I had to start keeping a glass of water handy just to be able to keep going!

E.B. White's classic tale of farmyard friendship has stood the test of time, with its memorable characters, timeless message of altruism, and simple but masterful prose. It's a book truly capable of captivating and being enjoyed by readers (or listeners) of all ages, and it's a great book to share with members of the younger generation.

This sounds like a great way to spend a summer vacation :). I love having little kids around who give me an excuse to revisit all my favorite childhood novels . . .
