In Wednesday's post I promised that I would share more about how the kids + I have been listening to Anne of Green Gables on cd in the car. I have heard for years now how amazing all of the Focus on the Family Radio Theatre productions are, but I had never checked them out for myself. Then couple of weeks ago, my friend Chelle lent me a few of her own to borrow, and now we are completely in love! They truly are amazing!
It took us about a week or so to get through Anne of Green Gable and it was so, so lovely. I really don't know if the kids or I enjoyed it more! I couldn't believe how much of the story touched me. Time and time again, I wished that I could pull the car over and right down inspiring quotes I heard. I grew up watching the well-known 80s PBS version of Anne of Green Gables- it has always been one of my very favorite movies- but I have never read the books themselves (although I have read other books by L.M. Montgomery). Reading the entire Anne of Green Gables series is now super high on my reading list, if not to the kids, at least to myself!
For now, we are listening to the radio broadcast again; after we finished it the other day, Audrey immediately requested to listen to it all over again. We love listening to books on cd in the car, but I think Anne of Green Gables was hands-down our very favorite. Even Elliot, my super boyish boy, listened to the entire thing quietly!
What are your favorite books to listen to?
