Always a favorite

This was a childhood favorite of mine and I recently read it to my seven year old. She liked it and was able to relate to the many "scrapes" Anne gets into. The prose can be long-winded at times, and the vocabulary if pretty advanced, so for independent reading it would be better for middle school.

Families can talk about what makes a book a classic. Are all old books automatically "classics"? Why do you think this particular story stands the test of time?

Do you consider Anne a role model? Is she like any kids you know in real life? How do you think she'd be different if the book were written today?

Why is imagination so important to Anne? What sets her apart from the other Avonlea children?

Great for all ages!

This is a children's book but I read it, and its sequels a little later, when I was 15-17 and I must say it still had all the charm. It is incredibly well written and was very funny. I only wish I had discovered it earlier.
