Video of the Day: Kate DiCamillo Celebrates Charlotte's Web

"Where's Papa going with that ax?" said Fern to her mother as they were setting the table for breakfast.
Charlotte's Web turns 60 on October 5, 2012. My students will most likely convince me to throw a birthday party for Charlotte, Wilbur, and Fern. It won't take much convincing. Just imagine the possibilities! Will Charlotte create the invitation? What will I serve? What will we play? Good times!

Newbery Medalist Katie DiCamillo wrote the foreword to the 60th anniversary edition. I'm going to share the following video with my students.

(Thanks to Travis for the link.)

Take a peek inside the 60th anniversary edition.

Happy early birthday to Charlotte's Web!

Borrow Charlotte's Web from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.


  1. I'll have to keep this in mind for next year. Looks like you are doing a good job on your Newbery Challenge. Keep up the good work!
