My eight year old granddaughter enjoy watching the DVDs so I thought it a good idea for her to be reading the books. Haven't heard anything as yet~~~~maybe she can have the time in the summer to do the reading.
The Anne series is a delightful read for families and especially for girls. Anne is an orphan taken in by an aging brother and sister. Far from being a sort of farm hand, Anne turns their ordered world topsy-turvy with her chattering tongue and vivid imagination, and of course captures their hearts. The series follows her from age 11 to the engagement of her youngest daughter, and gives us a glimpse of life in small Canadian towns about 120 years ago.
I have loved this series since my teenage years. I now live in Prince Edward Island (Anne's home) and feel if you are going to visit or have ever visited PEI, you would especially enjoy this set. Many people think the "Anne" series is only three books long. I like this set because it includes the complete eight books of the Anne series. Although these are usually classed as children's books, I don't believe most children would be interested in books 2 - 6. As a teenager and as an adult I loved the whole set. When my son was about 10 years old, I read him "Anne of Green Gables" and he loved it. He wasn't so interested in "Anne of Avonlea" so we jumped ahead to "Rainbow Valley". I knew he would enjoy the children in "Rainbow Valley". He loved it and the final book "Rilla of Ingleside". I often recommend this set to friends and family.
My grandchildren are in first and second grade are are still in the process of learning to read. These books have become a great tool for them to learn with. They read some each night and are excited to get back to it because they are such terrific stories. I have actually not seen the entire set here in Canada so it is great to have them all together. Thank-you Christian Book!!
