Should you READ or WATCH Anne of Green Gables first?
Which do YOU do first?
Read the book first!
anonymous: 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.
Fay Favored: If I'm teaching a unit I always tell my students to read first, because many times the movie is nothing like the book.
Michelle: Reading the book is always better. Leave the idiot box off!
Chocolatealchemy: Definitely read the book first - to use my own imagination!
anonymous: it will be better
anonymous: book by far!!!
lovetolink: There is more scope for the imagination in reading first!
Jimmie Lanley: Absolutely read the book.
Abridged or unabridged?
Do you or your children read abridged versions?
It was expensive to do much filming on PEI, so most of the movie took place in Southern Ontario. The roads were dyed red to look like PEI’s soil.
Watch the Movie first!
eccles1: I love the whole story, it is a good family movie
anonymous: 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. Edited by Wendy E. Barry, Margaret Anne Doody, and Mary E. Doody Jones.
The Lady of Shalott, Anne's favorite poem, by Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809-1892 in England)
Poetry Anne Loved - Hard to find poems, now easy to understand!
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.
