Favorite Books

Mrs. Pedigo: Charlotte's Web by EB White.

Have you read this book many many times?

It is fantastic every time. I think of this book each year when the weather turns nice.

If you have read this many times or never before, I recommend this book to you. You will love it!

The novel tells the story of a livestock pig named Wilbur and his friendship with a barn spider named Charlotte.

Charlotte is the only spider I have ever liked!!!
