Entry#3: What do I appreciate about Charlottes Web?
I appreciate that in charlottes web it teaches you about friendship. In-between charlotte and Wilbur is where most of the lessons of how friendship grows. Like on pages 55-60 is where Wilbur(the pig) is trying to spin a web (which he cannot) and charlotte (the spider) is telling him to try it. Instead of telling Wilbur he cannot do it she supports him like a true friend does. I think of my childhood and how I used to say I had super powers, my mother would just help me try to find out if I really had super powers. My mother was my best friend when I was little ,still is and charlortte reminds me a lot of her. They both can be a best friend and mother at the same time.
Fern and Wilbur are another pair of friends that teach me a lot about friendship. On pages 1-16 Ferns father is planning to kill a runt baby pig (Wilbur).Fern hears about what he is going to do and luckily stops I the killing on time. Then she takes the pig and cares for it herself. The pig grows and becomes a medium size pig. Fern and Wilbur became such best friends and like mother and son also like charlotte. I can relate to this because I saved a puppy from death when it was trapped in a pipe whole and cared for it. So its very cool to make a connection that has feeling and friendship within.
