I finally finished reading Charlotte's Web to my kids tonight. I had to hand the book to my 7yo to read the final paragraph. I was crying too hard. He sort of chuckled at me, but his 4.5 yo sister was asking "what happened, what's wrong" since I was crying.
I told her that I wasn't crying because someone hurt my feelings. I was crying because Wilbur loved Charlotte so much, she was his best friend, and he would always miss her. I was crying because it is sad, and I was about to tell her it was a joyful type of sad, because their friendship was a wonderful thing, when she exclaimed "Then don't read it!"
