When Maud grew up, she wrote about the childhood she wished she had, creating one of the best-loved characters of all time: Anne of Green Gables.

This is the second Little People, Big Dreams book I have read, and I love them. These books have such a great message for kids. Even though she faced adversity Maud wanted to be a writer. She worked hard and became one of the most well loved Canadian authors of all time. Her story also shows kids the importance of family and empathy, that even though Maud decided to leave her job to go home and take care of her grandmother, that did not stop her from achieving her dreams.

I never knew the story of Lucy "Maud" Montgomery who wrote Anne of Green Gables. This is a heartwarming story of a young girl who wanted to be a writer in the days where women were not writers. Her determination and not giving up made her a very popular writer even today. Her sad upbringing inspired her books and stories about Anne as well as a newspaper article she read. My daughter grew up reading about Anne and her adventures. This is a great story for children and to learn not give up on your dreams. It is also good for a school report. The illustrations are well done and deplict the time well. I would recommend this book for 7+ or adults who want to find out how Anne of Green Gables was created. I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

Every month I impatiently wait for news of new books in this series. This time I was delighted to see L.M. Montgomery as a subject. If anyone out there does not know, L.M. Montgomery wrote one of the (and my) most beloved childhood books, Anne of Green Gables. That story about an impulsive, loving young girl who brought new life to brother and sister, Matthew and Marilla, is full of the wonders of friendship, nature and life's daily challenges. How did Miss Montgomery create the novel? This book explains that young Maud wrote a story of the childhood that she wished she had experienced. In doing so, she brought joy to countless children and the adults who read to them. In this entry in the Little People, Big Dreams series, young readers will get to know Maud, understand her early years and see the spirit that moved her toward her dream of becoming a published author. Read this book to a child you know and then, read or re-read the books that made Maud Montgomery a beloved resident of Prince Edward Island. Thanks to NetGalley, the publisher and the author.

Anne of Green Gables was one of my favorite movies growing up and the book ranks among my favorite classics. I never realized how autobiographical Montgomery made the series. Any child who loves Anne will love learning about L.M. Montgomery's life.

"Anne of Green Gables" is one of my favorite books. I even had some of my senior pictures taken with a copy of the book that I own. Through this book, "Lucy Maud Montgomery", I learned a lot about the author of "Anne of Green Gables" and how she came up with Anne's story. This series of books is my favorite for kids and I enjoy them as well. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I really like the concept of these series of books as they each feature a woman who made a significant contribution to society. The books give a brief history with illustrations of the person featured , in this case author L.M. Montgomery. In my opinion the series best appeals to kids in the 4-7 age range. Some of the women featured in other books include Anne Frank, Rosa Parks, Ella Fitzgerald, Frida Kahlo, and Mother Teresa. L.M. Montgomery created the iconic character, Anne Shirley, who is so dear to many of us readers. This book provides a little bit of biographic info on the author and her childhood as well as what led to her writing the Anne of Green Gables books. The illustrations are colorful and appealing, other than the grandmother's nose which I thought resembled a pig snout. This is the type of book that is really fun to share with a child as they get to learn about someone who was special to you when you were growing up. Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an advance digital copy! I was under no obligation to post a review here and all views expressed are my honest opinion.
