What to Read: Anne of Green Gables

agg

Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery


 

Summary

Rediscover a classic! A young orphan, Anne Shirley, is adopted by Matthew and Marilla, a pair of aging siblings who own the charming landscape known as Green Gables in the town of Avonlea. The classic children’s book follows Anne on her escapades into adulthood. Her habit of daydreaming and bright imagination lead her into all kinds of trouble. It also teaches her many valuable lessons about friends, family, and what it means to be a young adult.

Overall Impressions

I originally had read this book for my Children’s Lit course, but in the end I enjoyed it immensely. Aside from the blatant sexism (which is probably due to the time period of the piece), it teaches many lessons about mindfulness and the importance of creativity. I loved the characters, especially quiet Matthew. His interactions with the much more outgoing Anne were adorable and well written. Anne was instantly relatable and charmed me throughout the entire book. This novel is a great choice for lovers of classic children’s books.

Happy Reading!
