Truth here…I love Anne of Green Gables. I have read the first book in the series more than once and I adored the old TV series with Megan Fellows. The original may seem wordy to today’s young readers but it is still a great read aloud or read alone for elementary school kids. There are fun adventures in the book and also universal longings (as for love and acceptance).
For a child who is not ready for the length of the unabridged book this could be a good introduction. It may even encourage some to go to Montgomery’s novel. The events are true to those in the book. There is an added plus here with the beautiful, vividly rendered illustrations.
What happens to Anne (remember the important final E) when Gilbert Blythe comes to school? Follow the short chapters to find out.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
