charlottesweb.gifHave you seen the new movie version of Charlotte's Web?  Have you read the original book by E.B. White?  Which did you like better?

Charlotte's Web is just the lastest of many great children's books that have been made into movies.  And just because you've seen the movie, don't think you know the whole story.  Many movies leave things out or make changes from the original book.  Why not read the book then watch the movie and compare the two?

Here are some other good books that have inspired movies:

•  Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
•  How to Eat Fried Worms by Thomas Rockwell
