      I read the book first, because it is the original. The book has a lot of extra information and details the movies don't have.

      If I'm teaching a unit I always tell my students to read first, because many times the movie is nothing like the book.

      Reading the book is always better. Leave the idiot box off!

        I love the whole story, it is a good family movie

        It was my favorite tv series of all time. I read the whole set of the books later on to understand more on the stories.

      Hundreds of notes describing the real-life characters and settings Anne encounters, the autobiographical connections between Anne and Maude Montgomery, and the book's astonishing range of literary, Biblical, and mythological references. Additional essays offer fascinating background information on such topics as the geography and settlement of Prince Edward Island (where Anne takes place); the education, orphanages, music, and literature of Anne's time; and the horticulture, homemade artifacts, and food preparation that are so prevalent in the story.

      Poetry Anne Loved - Hard to find poems, now easy to understand!

      Anne's anthology: Following the footnote trail
      Anne's anthology: Following the footnote trail

      Anne's Anthology is a compilation of many of the pieces, primarily poetry, Lucy Montgomery mentioned in Anne of Green Gables. They were pieces Anne loved and ones with which the girls in Lucy Montgomery's audience were very familiar. However, many have been lost in obscurity and the allusions are no longer understood. Now these hard-to-find works are collected for your reference and enjoyment in the almost 700 pages of Anne’s Anthology. Most of the poems are given in full-text with notes. Portions of longer works are also included. Like a patchwork quilt made from scraps of loved clothing, Anne's Anthology exposes its readers to best-loved poems from a previous era.

          Anne of Green Gables is one of my favorite book series, and even after having read the book this lens taught me some new things. I loved the maps, they helped put locations into perspective :)

          As a native of Atlantic Canada, I'm always delighted to see our own red-haired girl get her due attention. :)

          @favored: I agree. Wow, over one hundred, that's a fan! I think Megan Follows was just perfect for Anne. I can't imagine anyone else.

          This is one of my favorite series along with the movies. I've probably watched them over one hundred times. They are very well written and timeless.

          Very nice! I love the maps. I recently flew over Prince Edward Island on my way home from Denmark, and I was so happy to be seeing Anne's world (even though from the sky) and remembering the books and movies (shared years ago with my children) . . . I would love to actually go there someday. :)

          I like the video clips. They bring back some memories when I was young as it was my favorite tv series. I love the character of Anne Shirley and the place she lived - Prince Edward Island.

          What a great Lens you've created! The Anne books were some of my favourite growing up (actually even now, for a trip down memory lane!).

          @jimmielanley: Oh thank you! I'm really excited about it and wish I could devote all my time to it. Your lenses inspire and educate me so much. Now I know what a squatty potty is! LOL

          God Bless you and your family:)
