Anne of Green Gables: A Graphic Novel - Mariah Marsden,Kendra Phipps,Erika Kuster,Brenna Thummler

Anne of Green Gables: A Graphic Novel, is a generally faithful adaptation of the book of the same name. For the most part, I liked the illustrations, however the pupil-less eyes gave me pause. As so many TV adaptations have recently appeared, this book is sure to be sought after for kids who are fascinated by Anne, but can't yet read the originals. This graphic novel version would be perfect to introduce the series to a reader who was a little behind in skills, or a little young for the reading level.

Anne of Green Gables Novels #1 - L M Montgomery

Among my faves:

"I’ve done my best, and I begin to understand what is meant by ‘the joy of strife’. Next to trying and winning, the best thing is trying and failing."


"Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.” 


"Don’t you just love poetry that gives you a crinkly feeling up and down your back?”


“Why must people kneel down to pray? If I really wanted to pray I’ll tell you what I’d do. I’d go out into a great big field all alone or in the deep, deep woods and I’d look up into the sky—up—up—up—into that lovely blue sky that looks as if there was no end to its blueness. And then I’d just feel a prayer.”

Anne of Green Gables - L.M. Montgomery

"Oh, Marilla espérer quelque chose, c'est déjà ressentir la moitié du plaisir que cette chose vous procurera", s'exclama Anne. "Il se peut qu'elle ne se produise pas, mais il vous restera toujours le plaisir de l'avoir espérée. Mme Lynde dit :"Bienheureux ceux qui ne s'attendent à rien, car ils ne seront pas déçus." Mais je pense, moi, qu'il est pire de ne s'attendre à rien que d'être déçu."

The Complete Anne of Green Gables Boxed Set - L.M. Montgomery

Another of my favorites! (I love history) The Lexile level is HL710L. Since this series is set in the early 1900's and quilts were becoming popular, I would do a story quilt with a 3rd grade classroom. Students will illustrate their favorite part of the story, add captions, and glue their square onto a poster board that we will all use for the quilt. We will punch holes in the poster to string yarn through it to create the rest of the quilt.

Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
Anne of Green Gables Novels #1 - L M Montgomery

Yes, it is the same old story used over and over about an orphan. But Anne Shirley is no ordinary literary creation. In my opinion she is a masterpiece. And the author's attention to the details of life and the world around Anne is spellbinding. This story not only brings to life a lost era, but it also portrays a writing style that we may also have lost. This book is easily one of my classics. I have already read it several times in the past twenty years, but I have never read any of the books that follow in the series.
