E. B. White Study — Student Materials

Charlotte’s WebStuart Little, and The Trumpet of the Swan are three of the most well-known and best-loved books ever written for children. No doubt many of you are familiar with some or all of these books. You may have had Stuart Little read to you when you were little and watched the movie of Charlotte’s Web more than once. Or you may have read all three books on your own. Those of you new to these books are in for a treat — they are truly wonderful stories.

For this first literature study we will be looking at the work of E. B. White. Not only will we read and discuss his children’s books, but we will learn about White himself, his approach to writing, and how others have responded to his work.
