Yes, Charlotte's Web is a children's book, but it tugged at my heartstrings and made me appreciate friends, life, coming of age, and acts of kindnesses even more. And while I am, admittedly, a tad embarrassed that it took me all of my n years to read this book, the fact that I have actually gone and read it, and found that I loved it very much, more than make up for the unintentional delay.
Charlotte's Web is the endearing story of Wilbur, a little pig, who was saved from future butchering by Charlotte, a spider. Their friendship is one that transcended even death, and it was so poignant and simple that I took a moment to take it all in after reading the book.

Charlotte's Web is a timeless tale replete with life lessons for all to learn, regardless of age or status. I can't wait for the day when I can read this to my daughter and teach her the meaning of friendship, sacrifice, and love.
