Redlands Caught Up In ‘Charlotte’s Web’ For 2021 Community Read
|Redlands Adult Literacy|
The Redlands Adult Literacy Program has named the classic story “Charlotte’s Web,” written by E. B. White, as its 2021 Community Read.
“Charlotte’s Web” is a story that speaks to all generations with its themes of friendship, life, death and the power of words. The Community Read offers the opportunity for parents and children, readers who have read “Charlotte’s Web” or are new to the story, book club members and others, to experience the book’s message in a new way, particularly as we reflect on all that has occurred in the last year.
Guillermina Rangel, an adult learner enrolled in the Redlands Adult Literacy Program, is reading “Charlotte’s Web” for the first time. She observed, “I just love Wilbur, how innocent he is and his determination to learn. I also like Charlotte, who is very well educated, patient and compassionate towards Wilbur. To me, she is like a very dedicated teacher.”
To enhance the reading experience, a Charlotte’s Web activity guide has been posted on the Adult Literacy website. The guide includes a history of the author and the book’s illustrator, Garth Williams, as well as vocabulary, discussion topics, and activities for people of all ages. READ MORE ➤➤
