I forgot how great this book was until I started reading it in English 310 again! This book is such a classic for people of all ages and truly displays the pure innocence of children. The importance of friendship is highlighted in the novel by Fern truly loving and caring for Wilbur and Charlottes kind deeds till her death for Wilbur. I think this would work great in a 4th grade classroom! The Lexile level of this book is 680L. A neat activity for students could be to have them make a web of information from the story using comparing and contrasting techniques, or they could even discuss characters with animal cutouts. Definitely a good read!
