Charlotte's Web- Chapter 1
“But it’s unfair,” cried Fern. “The pig couldn’t help being born small, could it? If I had been very small at birth, would you have killed me?”
I chose this passage because Fern made the pig’s problem hers, and with her passionate feelings about the piglet, she saved his life.
This chapter reminds me of the time I found a baby turtle at my grandpa’s cottage and I wanted to keep it. My dad said it would die because it was so tiny, but I took it home and took care of it. Scooter was one of my very first pets.
