Book Response: Charlotte's Web by E.B. White

I remember getting my first copy of Charlotte’s Web when I was in grade 1. The Christmas tree was in the living room window and I lay down right in front of it on my back with the book raised in the air. I was so excited to read it. My Dad caught on to my excitement and lay down beside me to read it aloud.

One of the first illustrations in the book is of Avery Arable. It was exciting for me to find a book where one of the characters had the same name as me. It didn’t matter whether or not his role was big or small – he had the same name!
