A timeless story told by the only person who could/should tell it.
Listening to it with my 4-year old niece took me back to my own childhood; an unexpected gift.

E.B. White's reading was perfect for my third grader to read along. Listening and reading allowed her to discover precious gems on her own within the dialogue. One favorite example is when Templeton says " I am a glutton but not a merrymaker." Comprehension becomes a delight when it is discovered, rather than a tested task. This particular presentation accomplishes this beautifully.
I let my 7 year old choose her 'listening' book and this is what she chose. She was enthralled by the story. We'd listen a bit, stop it, and review what we heard. Listening to a story is often hard to do for children of this new generation - but listening skills are so important even in the age of technology. This was a great book to start with since it held my 7 year old's attention so well, and also my 3 year old enjoyed it too!
Piper (7 years old) says the best character is Charlotte because she is so smart and loves Wilbur so much.
Stella (3 years old) says Templeton is funny.
This is our first
You often miss something while reading.
Hearing all the parts I'd forgotten.

Always when they leave Charlotte behind at the fair.
I enjoyed listening to this with my grandchildren.
Yes. E.B. White truly loves this book, and his love for it is passionately echoed in each word as he reads this book for us!
The story is so warm and sweet. It is timeless story about friendship, humility, dignity, and respect. Each character is so well developed and reflects good and bad ways how we treat each other - in small details to the main story line.
I love Wilbur the pig. He loves life the way it is given to him. He really tries his best in every moment to be best of himself, and of a friend. He does not take anything for granted. The goose and gander characters make me laugh.
Mr. While's reading is absolutely superb. He brings you deep into the scenes. I cannot imagine any better reading. I catch myself trying to imitate his reading when I read the story to my son.
We (my 5.9-yr-old son and I) have read this story 100+ times. We have been going to bed with Audible's recording on every night past three weeks. It never gets old. My son even loves quoting and acting out the story. Good messages are hidden in so many layers of the story and it keeps on giving. This is what a truly great classic story is all about.
I listen to at least two Audible books a month. This was an absolute treat. I do not know how anyone could have read it any better than E.B. White.
I have a 4 year-old girl and an 11 year-old boy who both enjoyed Charlotte's Web. We have listened to it 3xs already this summer, and I have over-heard both children repeating lines from the story! It is great to know they are enjoying the book as much as i did when i was growing up!
no. rading was way b etter and the reader's voice and delivery was disappointing.
His reading was very dull.
This is a classic tale made all the more enjoyable by the narration of the author himself E.B. White. Enjoyable for adults and children alike.
