Anne of Green Gables is a heart-warming story of a quirky girl who has had nothing but dreams until she is placed in a home with an old maid and her bachelor brother who were expecting a little boy as a farmhand. The tale tells of her many challenges, usually self-afflicted, and her great achievements. She is always looking on the brightside, and is a beacon of hope. Despite her difficult past she is able to make friends and attend a prestigious school. The story emphasizes the importance of family and friendships. All readers can connect with Anne because she symbolizes life in a very honest and exciting way. Altogether, this novel is a joyous one that brings hope to the reader, that no matter who they are and where they came from, they can accomplish big things. This book is a pleasure to read. Some lessons could include: Have the students draw Anne of Green Gables, have the students share when they made a mistake or lied to their parents, ask the students to make a character chart with mini summaries of each of the main characters and their relation to Anne. These lessons will help the students to reflect on the book and apply it to themselves. ( )

I loved this book and would read it to my own children. I think the language in the opening chapter, and even throughout the book, is a little thick and superflous due to Anne’s personality, but if a child/teen can navigate it, the lessons Anne learns and teaches the reader are so valuable!

I read it in like 3rd grade so i don't remember it very well, but I have read it. ( )
  Brinlie.Jill.Searle | Nov 22, 2016 |
One of the most heartwarming and wonderful books ever written.
Anne Shirley's personality and imagination are addictive. The secondary characters are engaging, the humor is quirky and the language is excellent.
A must read! ( )

Epigraph
The good stars met in your horoscope,
Made you of spirit and fire and dew.
- Browning
Dedication
To the memory of my Father and Mother
First words
Mrs. Rachel Lynde lived just where the Avonlea main road dipped down into a little hollow, fringed with alders and ladies' eardrops and traversed by a brook that had its source away back in the woods of the old Cuthbert place; it was reputed to be an intricate, headlong brook in its earlier course through those woods, with dark secrets of pool and cascade; but by the time it reached Lynde's Hollow it was a quiet well-conducted little stream, for not even a brook could run past Mrs. Rachel Lynde's door without due regard for decency and decorum; it probably was conscious that Mrs. Rachel was sitting at her window, keeping a sharp eye on everything that passed, from brooks and children up, and that if she noticed anything odd or out of place she would never rest until she had ferreted out the whys and wherefores thereof.
Quotations
"Marilla, isn't it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet? … Oh, don't you see, Marilla? There must be a limit to the mistakes one person can make, and when I get to the end of them, then I'll be through with them. That's a very comforting thought."
"There's such a lot of different Annes in me. I sometimes think that is why I'm such a troublesome person. If I was just the one Anne it would be ever so much more comfortable, but then it wouldn't be half so interesting."
Marilla felt more embarrassed than ever. She had intended to teach Anne the childish classic, "Now I lay me down to sleep". But she had, as I have told you, the glimmerings of a sense of humor – which is simply another name for a sense of the fitness of things.
"Oh, but it's good to be alive and to be going home," breathed Anne.
But if the path set before her feet was to be narrow, she knew that flowers of quiet happiness would bloom along it.

Although they had originally wanted a boy, they begin to fall in love with the red-headed spunky girl, despite her shenanigans.

Haiku summary
We'll get an orphan,
He can help with the farm work.
Oh-oh -- she's a girl.
(SylviaC)

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 055321313X, Mass Market Paperback)

When Marilla Cuthbert's brother, Matthew, returns home to Green Gables with a chatty redheaded orphan girl, Marilla exclaims, "But we asked for a boy. We have no use for a girl." It's not long, though, before the Cuthberts can't imagine how they could ever do without young Anne of Green Gables--but not for the original reasons they sought an orphan. Somewhere between the time Anne "confesses" to losing Marilla's amethyst pin (which she never took) in hopes of being allowed to go to a picnic, and when Anne accidentally dyes her hated carrot-red hair green, Marilla says to Matthew, "One thing's for certain, no house that Anne's in will ever be dull." And no book that she's in will be, either. This adapted version of the classic, Anne of Green Gables, introduces younger readers to the irrepressible heroine of L.M. Montgomery's many stories. Adapter M.C. Helldorfer includes only a few of Anne's mirthful and poignant adventures, yet manages to capture the freshness of one of children's literature's spunkiest, most beloved characters. There's just enough to make beginning readers want more--luckily, there's a lot more in the originals! Illustrator Ellen Beier creates vibrant pictures to portray the beauty of the land around Green Gables and the spirited nature of Anne herself. (Ages 5 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
