Very pretty water-color illustrations of numbers 1 through 10 that are more likely to appeal to the mothers who adored Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables than their tots.

I love the concept of this book because it is both simple yet foundational for Canadian children to be immersed in Canadian culture, even from a young age. Anne's Numbers provides Canadian children with a beautiful way to learn their numbers alongside our beloved Anne of Green Gables! The illustrations throughout Anne's Numbers are simply beautiful, providing a lush backdrop for the reader to interact with the world of Green Gables and be introduced to Anne and her friends. This book receives fi ...more

What a brilliant idea for a book this is! I have a young daughter and she was completely engrossed in the book, the pictures are nice, bright and I love the whole concept and the different way the book is presented to allow little ones to learn their numbers. 5 stars from me!

*Please note this review covers the four ANNE board books by Kelly Hill!*

Canadian book designer (and clearly, crafter-extraordinaire!) Kelly Hill brings the youngest of readers- and their caregivers- a marvelous treat with a series of four Anne of Green Gables-based concept board books that feature hand-embroidered illustrations. All inspired by "iconic moments from the beloved L.M. Montgomery classic", this board book series includes: Anne's Alphabet, Anne's Colors, Anne's Feelings, and Anne's

Thank you to Tundra Books for a free review copy of Anne's Numbers!
Kelly Hill's board book Anne's Numbers is a precious way to introduce a wee reader to both numbers and the darling world of Anne of Green Gables. Each page is a high quality photograph of Hill's lovely original artwork - fabrics, stitches, textures and colors sure to enchant tots and moms alike. The images are so clear that for a moment I thought there was actual thread on each page and had to touch it to realize it was photograp
First sentence: 1 cherry tree

Premise/plot: This concept board book is inspired by L.M. Montgomery's Anne series. The concept being taught is counting one to ten. Anne Shirley can be found in every illustration. The scenes often celebrate nature much like the novels do.

3 stepping stones

My thoughts: I find the illustrations cute, precious, adorable, delightful, fun. The text is super-simple and not exactly spectacular. But the illustrations are appealing--at le

I love Anne of Green Gables and I love how the author once again used the backdrop if the story to teach numbers. Each page had a number and an item from nature that would have been seen at a picnic by the lake. The book culminated in the picnic scene from the Anne of Green Gables story. The illustrations, done in thread, material and wool gave this book an added interest for young children who love anything tactile. A wonderful idea for a board book for toddlers to teach numbers as well as intr ...more

Really cute fabric crafted illustrations, a great first numbers book you can read with your child to learn numbers. Words are very simple “two butterflies” and “three stepping stones”, so really a book of numbers - don’t expect a story! So cute.

Find my full review here:

This board book features absolutely gorgeous designs that celebrate, primarily, the settings from the ANNE OF GREEN GABLES series. Counting up to 10 with full page spreads for each number, this is loads of fun for beginning counters. Toddlers will enjoy the vivid colors and beautiful imagery as they count with Anne.

What I loved: These hand-embroidered images (photographed for the book) are simply lovely and a delight to look at. T

Anne of Green Gables (the character and the book) and creator/author Lucy Maud Montgomery seem to be everywhere lately - two recent small screen adaptations, a Heritage Minute in Canada, new biographies and scholarly books, etc.

Apart from its place in the Anne industry, "Anne's Numbers" is one example of the trend in books where writers and publishers are taking beloved classics and putting a spin on them for early readers - which is really meant to appeal to the adults who buy the books for the

Although I love the fabric illustrations in this Anne concept book, the scenes were not as relatable to the story of Anne of Green Gables as they were in “Anne’s Colors”. Woodland animals and toadstools? 5 stars for the art, but it lost a star for not quite meeting it’s purpose of introducing kids to Anne.

So cute! While this book is based on Anne of Green Gables, the objects on the pages are mostly nature-based (flowers, toadstools, clouds, etc.) and not specific to Anne. However, if you're a fan, look out for the Sunday School picnic at the end!

I absolutely adore the stitched, cloth-based illustrations, and especially Anne's orange braids.

This is a beautiful book for babies and toddlers and perfect for introducing numbers. Straight-forward presentation is part of the appeal, but I really enjoyed the use of fabric and needle art to design the illustrations.

I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review.

I'm giving all four books in the series to my niece for her birthday. This is my favorite book in the series because readers don't need to know the original story. It just follows Anne on a pretty day out in nature. I especially loved the end.

I'm always wary when anything Anne-related is released in the world because I'm worried they'll tarnish the character and the magic everything-ness of the books and the stories. But these board books are cute enough. I do prefer Anne's Colors more though.

Anne of Green Gables is one of my favourite characters ever! This is a lovely baby board book based on Anne. I loved the mixed media art, it looks like a scrapbook.
