Charlottes Web is my all time favorite children's book ❤️ bought it for my daughter when I was 6 months pregnant !!!😊

Roald Dahl is amazing. I still remember my dad reading me James and the Giant Peach 20 years ago. I read every Dahl book I could get my hands on after that and they have been such a positive influence in my life.

I loved Roald Dahl's books...
