A is for Anne, is a wonderful opportunity for mother, daughter or grandmother granddaughter bonding. The Anne of course is Anne of Green Gables, one of the most delightful and well-loved Canadian stories, and in fact book series of all time. And here we are reminded from A to Z, of the highlights of the people and events in that book and its series.


The text is gentle and leaves openings for you to explain and discuss and have a conversation. Author Mo Duffy Cobb is well-known in Prince Edward Island, and this book reflects the love she has for her delightful corner of Canada. The illustrations for this lovely board book by Ellie Arscott are sweet and gentle, pretty watercolors full of perfect colors and details. The whole book is so invocative of Prince Edward Island, and of the books and movies that have been made about Anne of Green Gables. 


If you know the story of Anne of Green Gables, you will love reading this book to your kids to introduce them to Anne and get them ready to read the book when they are older. What a discussion you can have, telling your daughter or granddaughter Anne’s story and about your life as a girl.


And, if you don’t know the story of Anne, read this to your kids and then read the Anne of Green Gables books together to learn this slice of Canadiana. It was published by Pownal Street Press in Atlantic Canada.
