Charlotte's Web by E. B. White is a classic book that teaches so many lessons that will be valuable to children. The story line grabs you in and the characters are easy to relate to and fall in love with. I like that this is a chapter book that isn't too difficult for learners.
I would use this book in my class to teach about central messages in a text. As a class I would use a class chart to write a major event in the book and what the central message of that event was.The students would help me find the central message and I would write them down as they shared ideas.
