There are some books that you remember reading as kids and are relate-able for different generations, and one of those titles is Anne of Green Gables. The stories are all around Anne Shirley who is coming of age in deals with life lessons and friendships as she transitions in her life from a child to a young adult. The stories maybe set back in a simpler time, but a lot of the issues Anne goes through are ones that young girls can understand and that is why the stories are close to our hearts after all several generations.
Watching these stories come to live on the screen helps us relive the stories we’ve fallen in love with and can bring the stories to younger generations. Last fall PBS brought Anne of Green Gables The Good Stars to our screens and people fell in love with it. In time for the holiday season, PBS has brought The Good Stars home to DVD so fans can enjoy it again.
The story brings Anne Shirley back to Prince Edward Island when she’s 13 years old. The story focuses on her friendship with Diana Barry and how it becomes strained when a boy enters the picture. Filled with a great cast and heartwarming moments this will become a family favorite in no time.
You can pre-order L.M Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables The Good Stars on Amazon now, and it will be available on November 7th.
