There was so much wrong with the third. So. Much.
I love the Anne books. I still reread them now. And I actually managed to get my DH to read them! He got hooked and voluntarily read the entire series. I love the first movie too. Oh Anne and Gilbert, still gives me goosebumps.
to the person with the DS who loves diggers, trucks etc - try Terry Pratchetts Wings/Diggers/Trucks books.
And spinning wildly off topic in a whole Anne of Green Gables direction, did you guys see this? (You'll need to scroll a little)
And this brilliant review of the cover on amazon
I also keep my mouth shut with most other parents - no-one is interested in hearing about her. I used to try but got the glazed eyes, and very early on - a lot of disbelievers. I just think ... meh now.
I think there is a big misconception of what the term gifted means. They don't all throw themselves into novels, science, Maths etc. Giftedness is more a term for how they think & perceive things. Most of them are extremely academic. My son however had the potential to be, but instead throws himself into afl & is 'over academic' stuff. He has his own football league with teams, players & it's own complex history. He suffers from intense heightened emotions & anxiety. So to the parents who feel like making snide remarks you have no idea how hard & utterly heartbreaking it can be at times. To hear your 6 year old tell you they wish they weren't alive so they didn't have to keep feeling so anxious about dying, is not worth bragging about. Maybe you should research Giftedness a bit more before you feel the need to judge!
My Ds spoke early, could recognize numbers & letters by 15 months. Worked with numbers in the millions by 3& remembered everything. He would tell me street names from an area we had been too once like a year before. Sounds silly but i didn't think anything of it. Until his kindy suggested I have him tested!
