Anne's Colors: Inspired by Anne of Green Gables
Each scene has its own color, with simple text and tactile, gorgeous works of art created from cut fabric and embroidery.
Part of a series of Anne concept books, Anne's Colors is a perfect way to introduce future fans to this winning character.
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.
