My first grade teacher read us Charlotte's Web. I remember bawling in class when we reached the end.

A much happier moving experience was The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare. It is a powerful book with many scenes that will bring tears to your eyes, but it has a much more uplifting tear inducing ending.

Thanks for sharing your story, Mark! I have not read Speare. Somehow I missed her work growing up.

It was the death of Amy in "Little Women" that got me crying, Dean. Nice blog.
