Adventurous Animals

Adventurous Animals


Animals are unpredictable creatures, but they can also be kind and protective! In this section, we’ll be meeting some geese, pigs, ducks, rabbits, and even spiders! It’s time to watch and learn as we read about a spider that saves a pig with its webs, and a little black rabbit in the Netherlands who befriends a little boy.

Charlotte’s Web, by E.B. White
Some Pig. Humble. Radiant. These are the words in Charlotte's Web, high up in Zuckerman's barn. Charlotte's spiderweb tells of her feelings for a little pig named Wilbur, who simply wants a friend. They also express the love of a girl named Fern, who saved Wilbur's life when he was born the runt of his litter.


Shadrach, by Meindert DeJong
Even after Davie had had the little black rabbit, Shadrach, for several weeks, it was still almost unbelievable. Every morning when Davie woke up it was a miracle all over again -- there in his grandfather's barn sat a wriggle black rabbit, and it was his. David had never been happier...until the day Shadrach slipped through the stats of his hutch and disappeared.
