Charlotte's Web

I am reading Charlotte's Web to the boys. I wasn't sure if they would get bored with more story and little pictures. Since it's a long book for the boys, I allow them to hold a toy and play quietly beside me as I read. As I read along, I am thinking "are they even getting this?" and "my throat hurts from reading outloud for this long". As I read chapter 5 where Wilbur meets Charlotte and she reveals herself, the boys stopped what they were doing and stared at me. They were excited because they were engaged in the book and all of the sudden wanted to see the picture of her. Okay, so I guess I can move away from the picture books at the library from time to time. How fun is that?
