What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the theme of the film is the cycle of life and death, which may frighten younger children. Families may want to discuss these themes. How does the movie make the youngest ones feel? How does Wilbur show his love for Charlotte even after she dies?
- Families can talk about which people are the most important in each of their lives. What can each person do to show their friends and family that they love them? Families may want to do an art project constructing "webs" of encouraging phrases made of yarn and construction paper fore each member of the family, similar to the ones Charlotte creates for Wilbur.
