Saturday Evening's Favorite Movie Moment- 'Charlotte's Web'
The award winning classic, Charlotte's Web, was written by E. B. White, the author of many other beloved classics such as Stuart Little, The Trumpet of the Swan, and Where The Mountain meets The Moon.
E.B. White was born in Mount Vernon, New York, and was the author of many other award winning essays for adults. He is also the author of The Elements of Style, which is commonly known as "Strunk & White".
I've owned a least five copies of The Elements of Style in my lifetime, and still refer to my present copy often.
E.B White's children's books illustrate his astounding imagination, gift for characterization, dialogue, phrasing, and above all else storytelling. E.B. White died on October the first in 1985, but his books will remain shelved for many lifetimes, teaching children and adults about love, sacrifice, loss, joy, courage, friendship, loyalty, and life.
If you haven't read these children's classics to your children, it is never too late to buy a copy.
Thank you for stopping by A Nice Place In The Sun, and I hope you have an excellent week-end- :)

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons
Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.
Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.
Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light
She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free
For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well
Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
