Charlotte’s Web

by E.B. White
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars

Category: Movie

Personal Evaluation: I thought this was a pretty faithful, entertaining rendition of the classic book. The last time I read Charlotte’s Web was a long time ago, so I had to go back to my disintegrating copy for a refresher, but there was only one surprising thing in the movie: Fern running around at the fair holding hands with a boy. (I just made sure, and that part is definitely NOT in the book!)

What might interest children: The story is enough of a draw, it’s a timeless classic that kids are still picking up on their own or being read to by a parent.
