This was a gorgeous, delightful book I found at my library, and I loved it so much that I'm buying a copy of my own.
I read the Anne books as a young girl and this made me want to revisit the stories. The authors did a fantastic job celebrating and researching the world in which she lived. There's a timeline of historical events from 1866-1919 (the year Anne was born through the year she turned 53, the time period the books cover); planning the quintessential Anne tea party; activities with press

First sentence: Although both of us read and loved the Anne books as children, we became intrigued with them again when our daughters began to read them several years ago. We found ourselves enjoying these "children's books" even more as adults than we had as children!

Premise/plot: In Anne of Green Gables Treasury, the authors share their research with fans of all ages. Their research started with making lists of what their daughters wanted to know more about as they read through the series. The

This used to belong to my big "sissy" and I have fond memories of reading this from her bookshelf. I think we even made cookies from it once! She gave it to me a few months ago, and I really do treasure it. <3

I pored over this during the heyday of my LM Montgomery reading. So much fun.

Loved this!!! Whether you are an Anne of Green Gables fan or an L.M. Montgomery fan, this is a must read for all ages!

My friend Kate gave this book to me for Christmas along with an Anne of Green Gables collector's doll. It provides background for what would have been the daily delights and chores of Anne's era, specifically on the north shore of Prince Edward Island. It took me back to the day I stood at Montgomery's graveside in Cavendish, and the walk along the path from Green Gables to the homesite where she lived with her grandparents.

The book is divided into chapters chronicling the life of the author of

all i'm gonna say is that i'm absolutely obsessed with this series (and Budge Wilson's prequel and Montgomery's own sequel)
I don't really want to rant right now xD

When my parents realized how much I read and reread the Anne of Green Gables series, they bought this Treasury for me around the age of 12. It was the very first "cookbook" I ever received (a large section of this book contains recipes Anne would have cooked for different occassions...I must have cooked Gingerbread Cake 40 times. My parents loved eating it that often I'm sure). I remember learning so much about the meaning of flowers, how to set up for the perfect tea party, and how to prepare t ...more

Everything you want to know about being Anne is here, as well as the original story with illustrations. The drawings are done with Anne's head always facing away, as to let the reader project their image onto Anne, say the authors. Step into Anne's world, with instruction on throwing tea parties to crocheting lace to making aprons. I hate to admit that I never finished the original story, but loved the mini-series and this treasury. I did want to make scones from the recipe here, but instead set ...more

This is the perfect companion for a grown-up or high school reader of Anne. A younger reader would need help doing most of the projects in the book. I like that the recipes and sewing projects have findable ingredients and are at a level that's not too intimidating for beginners, yet feel authentic to the time and setting. I loved the timeline of what was going on in world history at the time of significant events in the lives of Anne and her children. Altogether, a lovely, sympathetic and infor ...more

Just the most beautiful set of books about girlhood and growing up in the small Town of Avonlea on Prince Edward Island, Canada, in the early 20th century. A pure delight!!! Adults and teenagers alike will love it. It is full of wisdom and humanity, funny, with tremendous emotional depth without being mawkishly sentimental. If this does not touch your heart maybe you're dead!

This is a beautiful little book, full of insight into Anne's time period. The authors did a wonderful job of fleshing out Anne's life, providing additional information about what she probably ate, studied, wore, and grew in her garden. I loved the Anne books as a child and this would have been a wonderful companion to the series.

Mom - never read this book as a child, but enjoyed it thoroughly while reading with my daughter. Anne is a charming young girl full of life and vitality who grows into a selfless and strong young woman. A great book for young girls to read.

Faith - I tremendously loved this book. This was one of my most favorite chapter books I ever read. She was a deep thinker. She was truly a rare talent.

This book is so fun (whether you are a fan of Anne of Green Gables or not). It has a timeline of events that happened during the dates covering Anne's lifetime and it has fun recipes from the time. It has a scrumptious recipe for Caramel Pie that I highly recommend!

I haven't seen this book in years. I read through it when I was eight or nine and I loved it, especially all of the illustrations!

I have loved this book since the day I bought it 20 years ago. I made every recipe as a young lady and tried many of the craft projects. I've read it over and over again.

One of the best guides to Anne's world that I could imagine.

Treasury indeed.
Lovely artwork, some very neat little craft projects, and a solid number of workable recipes. I particularly liked the lemondrop cookies.

A marvelous compilation of Anne. I especially liked the Anne timeline, which gives the reader a better perspective of what life was like then.

It's a keeper. Get it for a young new reader of the Anne series!

I really liked this book. It shows how Anne would've spent her days, pictures and drawing of places in the books, craft projects, and recipes for an Anne style tea party.
