    Editorial Review

    An affectionate, sometimes bashful pig named Wilbur befriends a spider named Charlotte, who lives in the rafters above his pen. A prancing, playful bloke, Wilbur is devastated when he learns of the destiny that befalls all those of porcine persuasion. Determined to save her friend, Charlotte spins a web that reads "Some Pig," convincing the farmer and surrounding community that Wilbur is no ordinary animal and should be saved. In this story of friendship, hardship, and the passing on into time, E.B. White reminds us to open our eyes to the wonder and miracle often found in the simplest of things. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A fine work of literature that can stand alongside any in English
    I just reread it recently as an adult. I had this boxed set of three hardcover E.B. White books when I was a kid - Charlotte's Web, The Trumpet of the Swan (which I remember as my favorite of the three, though I hardly remember it today), and Stuart Little.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Charlotte's Web
    I've purchased this book for my daughter who is almost 9 years old, I end up reading it before her.This book is great for growing up kids; how wonderful and variable it is to have a friend he/she can depend on and be with to share fun, sad and so so stories to one another.
    4-0 out of 5 stars A classic, and for a good reason
    This book, though it may seem to be just a cute story about a pig, is actually quite sad.The first time I read this book I was in first grade and I liked it, but it was only when I just recently read it again that I realized how good it really is. This book, through its simple plot, reminded me a lot about how selfless some people are and also about growing up.No wonder it's a classic; even though it's written for little kids, it can remind a lot of people about their own lives and bring back a lot of fond memories. ...

    I never knew that this book was by a ghostwriter.I loved it even though it was alittle crazy with the whole blair and nate and I wanna be bonnie and clyde thing.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Desperate, sucky, bad plot, and desperate is the recipie for the worst Gossip Girl book.
    I was VERY dissapointed in this Gossip Girl book. It made me mad when I read the previous reveiws on the last book, saying that she had a ghost writer. Why I was mad, I have no idea. But, while first reading this book I was looking for hints that Cicly did not write this.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Here's the Wierd Thing
    I've been reading the GG series since book 3 came out, and well, I hate all the characters, and their choices, but can't seem to stay away. It's just because the books are exceptionally well written for what is basically trash fiction.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Good/Bad Start to the Year
    Starting a completely new school isn't always easy, especially in Claire Lyon's case. Claire and her family moved from Orlando, Florida to Westchester, New York. Claire's Father is best friends with William Block, Father of Massie Block (Claire's age). The Lyon's family (Consisting of Claire's 10 year old brother Todd, Mom, and Dad) is staying in Massie's guest house in the back yard of the Block's estate. Massie does not take a liking to Claire when they first meet, and it doesn't get better. After a hard first day of school, filled with NO FRIENDS, Claire thinks of ways to get back at Massie for all the pranks she pulled on her during the day. One day while Massie, her dog, and her Dad are out on their nightly walk, Claire sneaks in and gets on Massie's computer. There she turns Massie's three best friends Dylan, Kristen, and Alicia against her. Unfortunately, during an argument with Kristen one day, Massie discovers that Claire was responsible for the feuds. At the long awaited school fundraiser auction for the girl's school, Massie and Claire's Dad take the stage for a round of "Ninety Nine Bottles of Beer on the Wall." They were both drunk, and were planning on singing until $1000 more was collected for the school. It was bearable until they called for their family to come up. Massie and Claire ran out of the tent, and hid in the bushes right next to each other. For two hours, the two exchanged jokes, embarrassing moments, and stories. Afterwards, Massie even said she had fun! The war was over; at least until next week.....This is a fantastic book that all middle school girls would love.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Clique
    Wouldn't it be great to be the most popular girl in school? In Lisi Harrison's book, The Clique, that's what life is all about. This is a great book filled with drama that will hold a middle school girl's attention forever. The Clique is about a group of four girls, who rule the school called the Pretty Committee. When Claire, the new girl, comes to Westchester from Orlando, she stays in the guest house of Massie Block, the leader of the Pretty Committee, it's a whole different world. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars A Garden of Love
    Seedfolks is a 69 page book, an easy read. Seedfolks is a book that shows that all different races, religions, cultures, and ages can come together to make something nice and beautiful and have meaning. They took a dump-like place and made it into something beautiful.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Book for Building Community
    This small book (69 pages) contains thirteen vignettes, each written from the point of view of a different person. Although the people begin as strangers from various ethnic backgrounds, they become acquainted as each cultivates a part of a vacant lot. As the lot becomes a place of beauty, individual lives are transformed as well -- and a community is created.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Good reading for children
    This is a good book for children who does not understand the meaning of working together. Also, this book was structured very intelligently; so that any reader can follow the same story but from other people point of views. In addition; the way the author painted colorful pictures of the city was very unique. ... Read more

    This is one of those books that gets read over and over and over.Unlike some other books which end up at the bottom of the drawer.My 5 year old son is also starting to read the book himself (I hear him on the monitor).The other books in is this series are just as good if not better.

    Great book!I just wish it was clearer that it was a paper book and not card board (which are much more durable for a two year old).Also, would love to know age approprietness for books when buying.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Selection!
    Cows that type? Get out of town! Well, these cows do type, and negotiate. Life in a barnyard could not be more interesting than in this precarious story of farm animals that take a stand to better themselves and their environment. I loved the expressions on the animal's faces when Farmer Brown reacts to their demands. 'Eyes wide open' certainly applies here. This is a read aloud must! Not since I read Animal Farm by Orwell, have I been completely captivated by farm animals.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The A-list, the guiltiest of guilty pleasures!!
    I have read the A-list from the beginning and there is one main reason why it became one of my favorite guilty pleasures. Two Words: Sam Sharpe. This is my favorite character, I just love they way she developed, her approach to things, her cynicism that hides a very emotionally troubled young woman. She is the less cliched of all the four main characters (Anna...classy, prim and proper Hampton girl, yawn..., Cammie the uberbitch always on the verge of redeeming herself and Dee the real LosAngelino character, with all her ingenuity, incense sticks and sojourns in the loony bin). These stories, developments and characters are totally unreal, but hey people, this is FICTION! And meant to be FUN! The characters won't cover their heads in ashes, donate their money to the poor and join Mother Teresa's nuns...It is so exaggerated that it is fascinating for a European like yours truly...
    2-0 out of 5 stars why is it dragging on and on and on?
    i wonder if im reading the same book the others are reading. i'm on page 101 right now and it took me about 4 days to get this far. (i've gone through 3 clique books in a day, so it's not like i'm a slow reader) the book is just so boring. its like ive read all of this cr@p before! so far sam had a graduation party at her dad's yacht, we hear about 2 new characters from a rival school who happen to be enemies of sam and her group and conveniently enough the two schools do something together, i forget what but it looks like it will be the opportunity for sam to get her revenge for getting poop smeared on her white jeans a few years back (eye-roll). anna is incapable of taking care of herself at a time of crisis (her car gets rear ended by some cliche white trash woman) so her dad's 'dont judge a book by the cover cliche' tatooed but hot new intern comes to rescue her, omg romance! (another eye roll) ben is being a troll my guess is hes cheating on her, but seriously reading that chapter where they go on this really uncomfortable date just made me want to scream at the book! it was so annoying.
    5-0 out of 5 stars I loved it

    I really did enjoy the book a lot.This was a book was a page turner for me to read. I have always support any thing that Queen Latifah does. She has a postive attitude.She always show young women and girls that they can do any thing if they set there mind to it. I have nothing but love for Queen Latifah. Queen Latifah keep up the good work that you are doing to help young women and girls know that nothing is impossible.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Why do celebrities write children's books?
    Honest to god, this is one of the worst celebrity-written kids' books I've seen (possibly second only to Billy Crystal's saccharine tripe).Being a songwriter, you'd think Queen Latifah would actually know how to write verse... but she can't.Her rhymes have no real meter or structure, and half the time they don't even make sense (and not in a good Dr. Seuss way).The illustrations aren't that bad, but good lord, it's a shame that famous people can get crap like this published based solely on their fame. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A way to connect
    I read When I was young in the mountains, then took it to my father, who read it.Rylant is slightly older than me, but she grew up near where my dad was born and raised.My father said after reading that he'd pretty much grown up the same way.He left the poverty of Appalachia as a teenager via the poor man's college-- the service.I was born and raised in Utah.Books such as When I was young in the Mountains were a way for me to connect with a way of life I knew very little about, and I am very thankful for Rylant's work, especially since Dad died recently.

    5-0 out of 5 stars West Virginia
    Growing up in West Virginia myself, I relate to to this book. Although I'm now 20 and currently attending college, I still love to read it. It is something I plan to read to my children.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Memories of the Mountaina
    This book showed us what is best about the mountains and the traditions of those living in those mountains.It has been so easy for our society to stereotype Appalachian mountain people as ignorant, backwards hillbillies that it is refreshing to see a depiction that shows mountain people in a different light.The old ways are disappearing.So are the mountains.The Appalachian mountains are one of the oldest mountain ranges in the world, containing one of the most diverse hardwood forests on earth.Mountain top coal removal, strip mining, and valley fills are destroying these mountains.Soon, the only way we will be able to show our children the beauty and wonder of these mountains will be through books and memories. "When I Was Young in the Mountains" will be a treasure in our house for generations.I encourage everyone to not only read this book, but also to support efforts to stop destructive, non-sustainable coal mining practices so we will be able to show our children and grandchildren more than just beautiful pictures of what once existed! ...

    Editorial Review

    Kuplink, kuplank, kuplunk go the blueberries into the pail of a little girl named Sal who--try as she might--just can't seem to pick as fast as she eats. Robert McCloskey's classic is a magical tale of the irrepressible curiosity--not to mention appetite--of youth. Sal and her mother set off in search of blueberries for the winter at the same time as a mother bear and her cub. A quiet comedy of errors ensues when the young ones wander off and absentmindedly trail the wrong mothers. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Sweet Little Story
    I purchased this book to read to my baby and it is just a sweet little tale about Mommies and their mischievious babies.I can't wait until she is old enough to sit on my lap and really understand the story when I read it to her.I highly recommend it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It's an Oldie but a Goldie!
    My kindergarten teacher had also read this book to me and now I'm reading it to my kids, but really to my son because he's 4 and my daughter is 8. She listens to it when it comes time for me to read it to him because she would find it amusing. Blueberries for Sal preserve a distinct since of life when tin pails and wood smoke, bobby pins and rambling dirt roads were routine. At the same time it is a timeless portrayal of curiosity and maternal instinct as Sal and her mother find themselves sharing their berry patch with a hungry bear cub and its mother. The words flow in a natural rhythm, creating patterns that build anticipation.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Good book
    My daughter loved this book from the age of six and continues to love it now that she is just about eight.This book doesn't hold my six year old son's interest as long as it did my daughter's but he does like it.Makes a nice gift for any that age group. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Spectacular series!
    I started reading these books before the summer started and Im hooked! To live like Massie Block and her friends would be like living among the gods. Sure they are spoiled snobs that we all hate to love, but, Hello?? we're entertained by it. Thats the important thing that we read a good story that keeps us entertained and we want to read more, and more of them. Lisi Harrison should be one happy camper. Cause I don't know anyone who doesn't like her books. THUMBS UP!!!!!!!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars i luv this book!!
    when i first saw this book, i thought it would be another one of thosesame, old, never-ending popular book about the lives of popular girls, but i was dead wrong! i was bored and started reading the first book and i was hooked! i couldn't drop the books... and i'm not that big of a reader. this book is my favorite one so far... i think. i'm not done with the series yet. the book shows that although some girls can look cool and pretty on the outside, they do have the problems that other girls may have and the solutions are crazy and entertaining. i luv this book and the other clique series book. read it! =] ...

    If you had a boyfriend who you liked a lot how would you feel if someone stole him from you?Well that's how the girls feel in this book. The book I read was really good. It ended with the girl getting caught stilling everybody else's belongings. Then she tried to get other girls boyfriends so that they would want to go out with her. So then she had to go back to Spain.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Definitely In the Top 5 of All Children's Books
    Almost everyone else has said it already--this is as good a book as you can read to your kids.Not, contrary to what an isolated review suggested, stilted at all.Just beautifully evocative of a family living complete and joyful lives, with their ties to the land still unbroken.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Touching, beautiful, full of love
    I love this book!I bought this book for my son (then 3) when I was expecting my daughter.Admittedly, this is MY favorite book.My son would much rather read something silly than poignant.But this book is GORGEOUS!The illustrations are achingly beautiful.The love in this multigenerational family leaps off the page.There is a home birth, love of the land/ nature/ farming, and sibling love.The boy in the story is taught by his mother, father, grandfather and grandmother about "all the places to love."The story closes with him teaching these things to his new sister.Every once in a while, my son asks me to choose the books I like best for our reading and I always choose this one.Don't get me wrong, he likes it too (he's now 5) he just doesn't usually choose it.You won't regret buying this book!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Passing on the things we love
    I am not only a Book junkie, I am a grandma who wants to pass on the Passion. I fell in love with this book not only because I grew up in rural Michigan, on a dairy farm, with my grandparents up the road. But because this book captures the love and family bond that I want to pass to my grandchildren. Mike Wimmer did an exceptional job of bringing this lovely story to life. I Dare youto read this out loud to any child you love .. and not shed a tear! ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Sleazy and Petty
    This installation of the Gossip Girl series is just as shallow and superficial as all its predecessors are. The entire plot revolves around getting high, having sex, smoking, and guzzling down alcohol. The whole series is pure trash from beginning to end.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the others
    I agree with what some of the other people are saying this book is no where near as good as the other books, it seems as if ever since the kids graduated the author has run out of ideas. And those reviewers who are complaining about how this book isn't apporiate for younger readers, shoud know this book is for ages 16 and up and every 16 year old has heard or used the "f" word at least once in their lives.Yes there is a lot of sex, drugs, and bad language but that's a part of the real world. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars A lovely book
    This story is an fresh perspective on a simple subject. The author sees scarecrows as neither scary nor effective in repelling crows. On the contrary, her scarecrow is a gentle and companionable creature who welcomes crows with, well, open arms. It is a lovely antidote if your little one has been frightened by an unfortunate Halloween experience. And the illustrations! Lovely, lovely. Rich fall colors, muted tones, dreamy softened edges. Buy this book if you are considering making over the paint scheme in your home. Copy the illustrator's color palette shamelessly.

    If you don't know the name Ezra Jack Keats, then you just might miss out on one of the ultimate treasures of the literary world. This simple story of young Peter is a delight to read any time of the year as the protaganist wakes up to a snow-filled scene that he explores and enjoys. He even tries to capture a bit to bring home! Read this with your young ones as they anticipate the coming season or read it by the fire as you dry your feet after a winter day.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats, reviewed by Joshua, Mrs. Bhola's second grade
    If you like snow you would like the book The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. It is about the adventures of Peter going out in the snow. I like when Peter put the snow on his head. I liked it because I like books on snow. Check it at your local library.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A-List 4: Tall Cool One
    This book was very interesting, but not the best. First, I thought that Danny and Anna were gonna get together but he's in the beginning, and then he just disappears. Where did he go? I was also confused because this used to be kinda like a teenage soap opera and now this book was... a mystery in mexico. Different, but I should give Zoey Dean some credit for not writing the same old thing every book. But it was a great read, even though it was kinda different. The series is still awesome, and I still read the next book. So all is well, I'll just say it wasn't as great as the others.

    I was so happy! Finally obnixous Ben was gone! I loved when Sam and Anna got lost in the desert and found that house, but i also reallly wanted to know whos house it was. I loved how it wasn't all set in Beverly Hills and i loved all the descripiton. My favorite charcter was Lloyd because he was so werid. That drink that Sam and Anna drank that made them high is kind of like potscheen. ( Though i sure have never tried it.) I loved this book and you will too! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Not to be ignored
    This book is a tiny slice of genius. It can't be judged by a descriptive birthing scene in the first chapter, or the descriptive "climax" toward the end. What it should be judged by is the wonderful writing, the spot-on capture of dialect, what it's like to live on a farm under rules that seem foreign to us - but that are explained through prose rather than preaching. We are allowed to see a young boy growing into a man, and the responsibilities he accepts at such a young age are remarkable. Today's children could take a lesson from 12-year old Robert Peck. Less video games, less television, more hard work (reading and learning is included here, not just farm work).
    5-0 out of 5 stars "It will leave you better than it found you."
    I quoted a reviewer from the jacket of the book, because this short novel is full of dignity and plain old goodness.It is a testament to simple living before there were video games and cell phones.It is about poor people who are rich in the blessings of life, and how they meet the challenges of being poor with integrity and self-reliance.This is not for those who read superficially or those who are interested in plot only.It is a gorgeous read, full of lessons to be learned.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Why make young readers' lives more miserable than they already are?
    Adults would never choose to read this garbage. It would be seen as masochistic [...] and too depressing to bother with. Raise an animal, get attached to it, but the reality of farm life is that if it can't successfully breed, you personally will have to butcher it. Heck, why should your dad do it for you, when we can reinforce that valuable childhood lesson of "Life sucks and then you die"?

    We "got" Eloise as soon as we read the first page.My daughters, 4 and 6 love, love, love Eloise.They love her antics and can visualize the trouble she gets into so innocently (or not).Eloise is curious, inventive, creative, sleuthy, and definitely oblivious.We travel a lot so my kids can relate to being in a hotel.Eloise lives in a hotel so there are lots of opportunities to involve others (other guests, employees, restaurant staff, telephone operators, etc.) in her wicked (hilarious) fun.After we read Eloise for the first time (and we love the Essential Eloise the best, then Paris) we could not wait until the next night to read some more.
