Stuart Little - One of my favorite books as a child. I remember checking this out of the school library numerous times. I loved it!!
Stuart Little is a 1945 children's novel by E. B. White. It was illustrated by the artist Garth Williams.
Happy 115th birthday to E.B. White! During his life, White wrote some of best known children’s books of the past century, such as Charlotte’s Web, Stuart Little, and The Trumpet of the Swan. He captured the imagination of children everywhere with his talking animals, while at the same time teaching them important lessons, like the value of friendship.
Wonderful read aloud chapter book!
