    Since its publication in 1952, Charlotte's Web has become one of America's best-loved children's books. For fifty years, this timeless story of the pig named Wilbur and the wise spider named Charlotte who saved him has continued to warm the hearts of readers everywhere. This 1953 Newbery Honor Book comes to life in a delightful unabridged recording, read lovingly by the author himself.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Charlotte's Web?

    The story is great! The way the file is set up is terrible. It was difficult to use in the classroom with small groups. The recording is not broken out into to chapters, so I had to fast forward and rewind to figure out where each group had left off. It wasted a lot of time. Very disappointing!

    The story is great! The characters are wonderful and the children really enjoy the book.

    Ramona's job is to be nice to fussy Mrs. Kemp, who watches her while her mother works. If Mrs. Quimby didn't work, Mr. Quimby couldn't return to college. On top of all that, third grade isn't turning out as Ramona expected, even though she enjoys her class's new reading program, D.E.A.R. Danny the Yard Ape teases her, and, on one horrible day, she throws up - at school. Being eight isn't easy, but it's never dull!

    Story
    What did you love best about Ramona Quimby, Age 8?

    I thought the narration was well done. The students enjoyed listening to the story.


    What other book might you compare Ramona Quimby, Age 8 to and why?

    Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing

    They are both silly, entertaining, and deal with the growing up and the relationships with siblings, friends, parents, etc.


    Which character – as performed by Stockard Channing – was your favorite?

    Ramona


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The hard boiled egg fad was a good teaching moment.
