This week’s What to Read Wednesday theme is kindness. The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, KINDNESS… Upon racking my brain I could think of no better title for teaching the value of kindness than the first book I truly loved -the first book that broke my heart- Charlotte’s Web.
Fern’s love for her furry, four-legged friends forged a path for my own; her compassionate courage in standing up to her father to save Wilbur’s life sparked something inside me at an impressionable seven years old. Wilbur’s unlikely friendships with Charlotte and Templeton subtly model the virtue of kindness, of loving your neighbor, loving the unlovable.
I might even venture to claim this book was formative in molding me into a bookworm.
