Anne of Green Gables for the Youngest Readers Celebrates Colors and Numbers in Two Delightful Board Books
Celebrate Colors and Numbers with Everyone's Favorite Anne of Green Gables
Anne of Green Gables for the Youngest Readers
Kelly Hill's Anne's Colors brings everyone's favorite character Anne of Green Gables to life for our youngest readers with this bright and colorful board book for infants and toddlers. The first page opens with Anne and her suitcase arriving at Green Gables. Anne's iconic orange(red) braids are featured with the first color word "orange". Hill presents a scene from the original Anne of Green Gables on each page and features a color word in large print of the matching color next to the scene. Anne is featured with her first time in meeting her new friend Diana with the color "black" because Diana's hair is black. She is featured on the "pink" page with her friend Gilbert from the original book. Each page with a different color features a scene from the original book. The color "green" is celebrated with the last page with a scene of Anne's beloved Green Gables farm along with her family. Hill writes with simple text and emphasizes each color with the color word being written in the same color as the identifying color. The illustrations are of special interest in that Hill has created each illustration with resemblance to cut fabric and embroidered pieces.
Anne's Numbers introduces the concept of counting and numbers with Anne of Green Gables taking a walk in nature to count trees, flowers, and friends. Hill bases her counting story on Anne's walk to school in the original Anne of Green Gables. The colorful illustrations in this counting book also resemble cut fabric and embroidered pieces.

Fun Lesson Ideas for Anne's Colors and Anne's Numbers
Board books are included in good early childhood classrooms for infants and toddlers. Board books are created with sturdy cardboard that cannot be torn and are easy for toddlers and young preschoolers to carry around. Colors and numbers are the first learning concepts that are introduced to infants, toddlers, and preschoolers.
*Read Anne's Colors aloud in a group reading session or to individual children throughout the day. Many teachers who have infants in the classroom often sit with the infant in a rocking chair while reading. Many teachers might want to use one page at a time when introducing the color.
*Introduce the color and point to the color word that is printed in the identifying color. Pointing to the color word introduces the young reader to the color name along with the color. Talk with the infant and toddler about what is happening on each page.
* You might want to have other objects of the color available on other days to identify the learned color from the book. The color "orange" lends itself to having carrots available.
