"Some Pig."

"Terrific."

"Radiant."

"Humble."

The words Charlotte crafted into her web to praise her friend Wilbur. I thought it would be fun to surprise Norah with a web in her bedroom door frame that had a word just for her:

She woke up, looked up, and saw it. She tried to hide her pleasure from me. But, she blushed and was barely able to contain her smirk. She asked "Can I color it?!" right away. That was the first time in history she didn't ask for breakfast before anything else.

So, if your child knows the story and you want to play along, print this sheet and write in a word that fits your child. Hang it over their head as they sleep and they can wake up to praises like Wilbur did.
