Carrying On A Tradition
I am a long time fan of the Anne of Green Gables book series written by L.M. Montgomery. I have a treasured beautifully illustrated unabridged copy of the first book in the series, Anne of Green Gables, given to me by my mom. She read it to me when I was a girl. My mom sent it to me a while ago and I started reading it to my daughter, Mrs. Sayuri.
At the rate of about two chapters a night, it took us three weeks (give or take) to finish it up.
We really enjoyed it together. Something I found interesting was how much your experience reading a book can change with you as you go through life. Now that I am a mother myself, I found myself relating more with Marilla’s maternal feelings than Anne the girl.
Next up – I would like to find out if the local video store has the made for TV movie version of Anne of Green Gables starring Megan Follows so we can enjoy watching that together. It’s one of my all time faves.
Some Anne of Green Gables Inspired Art by Mrs. Sayuri
Mrs. Sayuri is always drawing. She loves to create things. These two drawings were both inspired by our having read Anne of Green Gables.
