When Marilla Cuthbert and her brother Matthew send for an orphan boy to help Matthew on the farm, Anne Shirley, a skinny, red-headed girl who never stops talking, arrives instead. From the beginning, Matthew's heart is captured by this "kindred spirit" and he decides he wants to keep her. Marilla reluctantly agrees to this, but eventually finds herself entranced by Anne's chatter, amused by the scrapes Anne gets herself into, and frustrated with Anne always having her head in the clouds. As Anne grows, Marilla finds her a "genius for getting into trouble." Yet, as Anne says, "have you ever noticed one encouraging thing about me, Marilla? I never make the same mistake twice."
A book full of fun, close scrapes, and love. As Anne says at the end of the book, "'God's in his heaven, all's right with the world.'"

    LA Materials.

    Seems disorganized. Hard to see what goes with each chapter. Not enough higher order thinking questions. Progeny Press Response: We are sorry you did not find what you were seeking in our Anne of Green Gables Study Guide. We strive to provide well-organized, clear, academically challenging questions and answers in our study guides that incorporate higher order thinking concerning both the work as literature and applications of the concepts within the work to students' life. (A very good review of higher order thinking in education can be found at ) We hope that you find other Progeny Press study guides more suitable to your expectations.
