Book Suggestion and Writing Idea Combination

Author E.B. White was born on July 11, 1899.  He was the author of the famous children's book, Charlotte's Web.  If you haven't read this book before, you definitely need to pick it up.  You'll love the story of the many farm animals who become friends, including the spider (Charlotte) who comes up with an amazing plan to save the pig's (Wilbur) life.

Did you know that E.B. white lived in Maine?  Did you know that the farm he lived on in Maine inspired a lot of his characters and ideas for the stories he wrote (including Charlotte's Web)?  Take a look at some of the websites I've included below to learn more about E.B. White's life.  Create a Google Doc (or Google Presentation for those of you who want more of a challenge) and write about what you learned about this famous Mainer.  

Here are some websites about E.B. White (feel free to search other websites about E.B. White with your parents' permission):
