Anne of Avonlea Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Anne of Avonlea

Anne Shirley, now a teacher, has still got that admirable enthusiasm and optimistic spirit within her that keeps the reader's spirit up and interested. Even though not all of her students treat her with total respect, Anne still believes that “there is good in every person if you can find it” (pg. 29). She always seems to make out the best of unpleasant situations that come her way. She takes the time to look past the negative subject and searches for an optimistic point instead. This book is full of Anne's ability to handle things with a joyful attitude (for example with the unfortunate conditions of Marilla's eyesight). I would greatly recommend this to all who enjoy experiencing cheerful and humorous feelings while reading, especially kids and young teens and those who have read and enjoyed the first book in this series.
