{A Timeless Classic Reexamined} Charlotte’s Web


Charlotte’s Web is beloved by children, but do adults give E.B. White's novel the credit it deserves? A new episode of's award-nominated web-series BOOKD asks if Charlotte’s Web should be considered not only one of the greatest children’s books of all time, but also one the greatest novels in American literature - period.

BOOKD sits down with a children’s book author, an elementary school teacher, and a 6th grade poetry prodigy to discuss the heavy themes, lasting appeal, and literary merit of Charlotte’s Web. In addition, one of E.B. White's biographers shares the amazing true story behind the creation of this classic children's book.


I know all my wonderful readers would be very interested in this re-evaluation of Charlotte’s Web. Almost everyone has read the book as a child, but it is rarely examined from an adult perspective. Let me know what you think I the comments below, after you watch the video!


BOOKD is one of four series on THNKR, a YouTube channel created and produced by that gives you extraordinary access to the people, stories, and ideas that will change your mind.
