Episode Notes


Chapters 1-2 Anne of Green Gables Ms Rachel is Surprised & Matthew is Surprised (too!)

  • red roads in PEI
  • Fave quote of today’s chapters: people laugh at me because I use big words. But if you have big ideas you have to use big words to express them, haven’t you?”
    “Well now, that seems reasonable,” said Matthew.
