Since its publication in 1952, Charlotte's Web has become one of America's best-loved children's books. For fifty years, this timeless tale of how a little girl named Fern, with the help of a friendly spider, saved her pig Wilbur from the usual fate of nice fat little pigs has continued to warm the hearts of readers everywhere.

My childhood

I remember reading this story as a young girl, then reading it to my three daughters. Listening to the author E.B White’s narration was simply perfect. The memories and the emotions of a simpler time. Everyone should experience this book at least once in a lifetime.

Waving goodbye with one leg

Had this read to me as a boy and cried. Read it as a grown man and cried. Waving goodbye to Charlotte with one leg. I am so glad Templeton didn't follow his nature and eat the egg sack.

It’s a classic for a reason

Wonderfully told by the author. You can hear his passion for all his characters but particularly Charlotte and Wilbur.

Lovely classic story

I remembered this from when I was a child and really enjoyed listening to it with my daughter in the car. From what she said I think she related to Fern and found having a little girl in the story relatable.

Fantastic listen!

I have not heard this story since I was a child and listening to it as a now 33 year old, it brought back fond memories. I also picked out parts which mean a lot more to me this time round and reminded me just how much we can learn as adults from the tales told to children.

A classic I had missed previously.

Really good listen. All the better with the author narrating. Great story and I can understand why it is a classic.
