You'd be surprise how much can happen in a life as a pig. This story tells about a friendship between a farmyard pig named Wilbur and a grey spider named Charlotte. At Zuckerman's farm, Wilbur becomes lonely for friendship but none of the farm animals will play with him and only Charlotte said that she will be his friend. Wilbur is a spring pig who is distressed to learn that he is being fattened for slaughter in the fall but Charlotte resolves to save Wilbur in anyway she can. This book reflected on me alot I wanted to have a friend like Charlotte. Charlotte's web made me more open to friendship because in elementary school I didn't talk much to kids in my class much. Thank you Charlotte for building friendships for me.

He tries to disguise himself as one of the prisoners and enter the death camp with his friend but thinks didn't turn out to well. This story also reflected with me on close bonds and friendships. Anything can happen at anytime so its good to let someone know how much you appreciate them because it might be the last time you speak to that person.

My favorite Shakespeare book, Prince Hamlet of Denmark is urged by his father’s Ghost to avenge his murder at the hands of the dead king’s brother, now King Claudius but to make matters worse Claudius has married Hamlet’s mother.Hamlet feigns madness with his family and friends, including his beloved Ophelia but everyone think hamlet's madness is love sickness. Hamlet struggles with his doubts about whether he can trust the ghost and whether killing Claudius is the appropriate thing to do or not. This really told me more about seeking revenge and me thinking it's not such a good thing.

This book really speaks on the depression-era which made me think more about our community and how we should come more together.
