Listen to the silence
on 2 September 2017
I read this book once when I was much younger. Even back then I loved the stories of Wilbur and Charlotte, the spider who could fool all and bring a friend a chance that never existed. However underneath that you need to always remember Fern, who becomes less of a character as she grows but is the person who allowed all of it to come about in the first place. A story of love, chances, fighting for what is right and friendship.
I love this book and love that Fern could hear and understand the animals, what we all need to learn that sometimes it is better to stop talking and listen. It is an underrated skill nowadays and lost by many. There are lessons that can still be learnt from books today if you are willing to hear them.
