Saturday Evening's Favorite Movie Moment- 'Charlotte's Web'

Saturday's Favorite Movie Moment embraces the best movie adaptations from books, unless I find a screenplay written as well as a book.-If that's possible, and I many times it is-

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- :)

I've never read that book. I just looked it up and they say it is about a spider trying to save a pigs life - so tell me, does the pig die? And, no I probably won't read the book, so just tell me...

Laughing...I ought to make you read it, but I guess I'll go ahead and tell you.

The pig doesn't die, but Charlotte the spider dies after she lays her eggs. It's a great book and movie. You know, I was thinking about reviewing it, but I cannot find my copy.

You have to watch some reviews...laughing...

Thanks for stopping by Grace. And I hope you're having a super great week-end-

xoxo

How adorable. I've not read the book either, but what I got with this is the animals really don't act any different than we humans do. I'm not good at reviews, but that's what I kept thinking.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs and tons of love. ♥♥♥

Sandee,


I can tell how much you read- :)

E.B White was great with personification. You hit the nail on the head- "Animals don't act much different than humans do;" they're just without a voice in various bodies.

You have a fabulous day too- And tons of love back to you- :)

Motherhood- Courage


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-

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.

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

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


Written for Ann

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'


F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.
