Grand Prairie Elementary School recently completed an all-school read of the book “Charlotte’s Web.”  Written by E. B. White, the book tells the story of Fern, a girl who saved the life of Wilbur the pig after he was born the runt of the litter.  Characters in the story include Wilbur, as well as Charlotte the spider and Mr. Zuckerman, farmer and owner of the barn where the animals live. The story captures feelings of friendship, love, life and death.
