A great Canadian novel to introduce your older child to reading classic works of literature! Perhaps, join in on the reading and spend quality family time as you & your older reader explore the world of Anne of Green Gables.
“When Marilla Cuthbert and her brother, Matthew, decide to adopt a child from a distant orphanage, they don’t get quite what they bargained for. The child who awaits them at the tiny Bright River train station is not the strapping young boy they’d imagined—someone to help Matthew work the fields of their small farm—but rather a freckle-faced red-headed waif named Anne (with an e, if you please).
Matthew and Marilla may not be sure about Anne, but Anne takes one look at Prince Edward Island’s red clay roads and the Cuthbert’s snug white farmhouse with its distinctive green gables and decides that she’s home at last. But will she be able to convince Marilla and Matthew to let her stay?
Armed with only a battered carpetbag and a boundless imagination, Anne charms her way into the Cuthbert’s hearts—and into the hearts of readers as well.”
