lovely and fun exploration of colors
This board book features lovely images made out of hand embroidery that feature scenes from the classic, ANNE OF GREEN GABLES. The images of the embroidery are gorgeous, and it brings adults back into the novels. The colors are vividly portrayed with not only the described item but other colors in the images complementing. A delightful introduction to Anne and her life, this book is fun for toddlers and their parents.
What I loved: From the scenes portrayed to the lovely embroidered fabrics and colors, this book is absolutely a joy to read and explore with young toddlers. Anne is such an iconic character, and the most memorable scenes (including raspberry cordials, her brown dress, and the trip through the blossoming trees) are shown. This is a great book for adults to share with future fans.
What left me wanting more: As a small point, I would have elected to skip the hair pulling scene (which shows Anne’s pink cheeks), due to the potential consequences of imitation. However, this could potentially also start a dialogue about appropriate behaviors.
Final verdict: ANNE’S COLORS is a lovely and fun exploration of colors and scenes from the classic novel. Fans of Anne, old and young, will delight in this fantastic board book.
