C- Charlotte

Charlotte's Web C is for Charlotte- "It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer. Charlotte was both."
I loved Charlotte's way with words.  She spins a few words and changes the life of her friend.  Don't we all as writers hope to be like Charlotte?

What kind of friend are you? What kind of writer are you?

I loved Charlotte's Web as a kid, one of the first books I remember reading. I love it even more as a parent. Sharing it with my girls added layers in a way I hadn't imagined.

That's a great quote. EB White's writing is as heartfelt as it is brilliant.

Thanks for stopping by and following, Carrie. I'm glad to do the same.

Another great book with a beautiful message. i agree with Tim, it's even better when you're a parent.

One of the best books ever. I want to be like Charlotte and have friends like her. Well, I think I already do.

I remember bawling my eyes out reading this book. And then again when watching the movie. Charlotte was the greatest.

Aww, just reading this line gave me goose bumps, I loved Charlotte's Web so much. I think I am going to read it again, haven't read it since I was a child.

This is one of my favourite books, even now as an adult.

Awww! What a great post! I try to be a good writer. And a good friend. And mom. And wife. And teacher. And...hee. It's a fun challenge, but I do try!

While I don't have the tools to spin webs like Charlotte does, I often reflect on how I can use my writing to help others see things in a different way, kind of like how Charlotte spun her web to help the humans see Wilbur in a different way.
