Listening to this as my bedtime book! It's as good as I remember and maybe better. Bless ...

This is definitely a book I can imagine reading aloud to imaginary children at bedtime, like Little Women. Anne is a fantastic heroine, and while there is much I don't agree with in the value system, the possibilities for not just basic acceptance but for truly becoming a heroine in everyday life for a girl who would now be classed ADHD is exciting and wonderful.

tatterpunk Yay for rediscovering old classics!

But I disagree with the idea that Anne is ADHD. Anne isn't even that "flighty," as they would have called her -- just deeply imaginative and passionate. One of the treasures of the book, for me, was how she was eventually valued for who she was despite very few people truly understanding her.
