Introducing Anne With An E On Netflix! #StreamTeam #Giveaway @Netflix #Ad

Anne With An E

    Are you ready for the exciting next chapter in Netflix content?  I am so excited about being a part of celebrating the debut of the Netflix original series, Anne With an E, based on the beloved book series Anne of Green Gables.  As a Literacy Specialist, I always enjoy when some of my favorite books are made into television series that different generations can enjoy and fall in love with.

    Anne With an E is a coming-of-age story about an outsider who, against all odds and many challenges, fights for love and acceptance and her place in the world. Set in Prince Edward Island in the late 1890s, the series centers on Anne Shirley (Amybeth McNulty), a young orphaned girl who, after an abusive childhood spent in orphanages and the homes of strangers, is mistakenly sent to live with an aging sister and brother.

    Over time, 13-year-old Anne will transform the lives of Marilla (Geraldine James) and Matthew Cuthbert (R.H. Thomson) and eventually the entire small town in which they live with her unique spirit, fierce intellect and brilliant imagination. Anne’s adventures will reflect timeless and topical issues including themes of identity, feminism, bullying and prejudice.

    She is definitely a strong character who, despite being an orphan, finds an unlikely home with a hardened spinster and her soft-spoken bachelor brother.  Her life and struggles inspire young women to keep going, even in the face of obstacles and adversity.  I’m thrilled to have another brave, female protagonist added to the lineup of Netflix original series!

Let’s Discuss:  How are you teaching your children to remain strong in the face of adversity?

  1. I actually haven’t even seen a preview to this until now but it looks awesome. Can you believe I’ve never read the book series!

  2. I constantly teach my kids to try their hardest and do their best.

  3. donna porter says

    I try to keep them positive through all types of situations.

  4. I saw an ad for this, but haven’t seen it yet. I am looking forward to bingeing on it very soon!!

  5. Tammy Shelton says

    We moved states from Texas to Florida. My Grandkids handled the move so well. They made new friends so easily and are very happy.

  6. My children have always had a very strong sense of who they are. They were both home schooled for most of their schooling years, so I think it gave them the chance to develop individualism which in turn made them strong when facing adversity.

  7. Andrea v says

    To be themselves and not let others influence them in making the wrong decisions.

  8. I am probably way to excited to see this. I remember loving Anne of green gables as a kid, so this is like my childhood coming back around to me.

  9. Julie Wood says

    I help my kids buy being a good role model and teaching strong self esteem and to talk about their problems and teach them to find ways to solve their problems and be stronger in the process!

  10. elizabeth miller says

    We have always taught our daughter to be herself no matter what the circumstances are. We teach her she is a good person and raise her with strong values that help her get through whatever comes her way. She is has a very empathetic side to herself and understands that at the end of the day, it is only her looking at her in the mirror.

  11. Bianca Munoz says

    We are teaching our children to remain strong in the face of adversity by making sure we are communicating with one another. Maintaining daily routines as much as we can. And by taking breaks some days. Thank you for the giveaway!

  12. I teach children to remain strong in the face of adversity by telling them to stick to their beliefs. They need to know that they can trust in themselves. My daughter and I would enjoy this series.

  13. I really love the idea of this series, even though I havent heard of it. Looks like a great girl power kind of vibe and one that shows girls how to problem solve and face their challenges head on.

  14. I feel I’ve taught my children to be strong in the face of adversity being being strong in their convictions and making sure they are respected. Anne of Green Gables is a timeless series, and I’m so glad that Anne with an E has been created, to show a whole new generation of children this amazing example!

  15. I just binge watch this over the weekend and it was fantastic. I pretty much cried every single episode too.

  16. We teach our kids to stand up for what is right and do what they know they are suppose to, regardless of if friends are not. Our older 2 are 8 and 9.

  17. I’m so excited this is now on Netflix! I can’t wait to binge watch this!

  18. I teach my son to be strong in the face of adversity by instilling in him a strong faith in God and his family. I try to show him that he can reach within for inner-strength, but it is also good to have faith and others to call upon for help, and there is no shame in that.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  19. Cassie, I have never read this series either and I was/am a bookworm. Not sure what happened there..LOL

  20. I praise them when they demonstrate persistence, resilience, a brave heart, etc. I try to make it more about the effort than the result.

  21. Patricia says

    This looks great. My kids have a little mantra they repeat to themselves. I hope it helps them realize they are special and unique. I hope that they might realize no one is the same and they must embrace their uniqueness as well as others.

  22. I think movies are a really helpful tool to teach kids about how to persevere and come out stronger. They see it in characters in the movie and they can connect and realize they can do it themselves too!

  23. I’ve been obsessed with the books and just listened to most of them on audiobook this past year. The movie that came out with Martin Sheen was okay, but I wish they had remade the rest of the movies, too! Hoping this series lives up to the hype!

  24. I tell them to be themselves because being exactly like others gets old. I grew up reading the series because I liked that Anne was smart & creative when approaching life even when there were obstacles.

  25. Aw, I have a Netflix subscription otherwise I would have entered the giveaway but I do like Anne Green of gables so the Netflix version sounds good. What a great giveaway

  26. aish das-padihari says

    Neither I have seen the series or read the book. But after going through your post, I think, I should.

  27. I have never read the books, but Anne sounds like a character I would love to read about. I love a strong female who moves past her pain and makes things happen for herself!

  28. Julie Lundstrom says

    I try to teach my kids acceptance. I try to teach them to accept people for who they are even if they are different then them. I try to teach them to be proud of who you are and just be you.

  29. Kristina says

    I saw the preview to this and I would actually like to watch it. I think it would be interesting and keep my interest.

  30. Melissa Storms says

    That is such a tough one. It really depends on the situation, I try to teach my son to look at a situation in many different ways. I think that if you can take a step back from any issue you are facing you can make better decisions than if you just react.

  31. I saw this on Netflix today, will be checking it out soon! I LOVED Anne of Green Gables when I was younger 🙂

  32. I have been meaning to watch this show! I think I may try tomorrow.

  33. Journa Ramirez says

    I’ve seen its trailer and yes, this show is so interesting! I can’t wait to see it and get entertained, shocked, and more roller coaster of emotions!

  34. I just tell them to talk about it with us and be positive .

  35. Seyma Shabbir says

    I teach my children to compromise in certain situations but never with fairness or honesty.

  36. Seyma Shabbir says
  37. Annemarie LeBlanc says

    I guess the best way I taught my kids to be strong and steadfast in the event of any adversity was to be an example of strength. They saw how hard I worked to have enough to send them to college. They knew how I balanced two jobs and hardly got any sleep. I am proud that it paid off. They are all grown ups now, responsible and loving young adults.

  38. I am a super Netflix fan so many good options for all the family. And this giveaway what a great opportunity for a chance to win.

  39. DealinDiva says

    I try to teach my kids adversity daily. It’s kind of hard because of the world we live in today, but I believe it can be done.

  40. Love this book and I am really excited to see that they are coming out with a new show. It will be interesting to see a new take on such a classic story. Teaching my kids to be confident in themselves and their decisions is so important – and so difficult!

  41. I loved to old Anne of Green Gables so much. I’ve been hesitant to give the new one I try, but I know I will since I just love the story. Anne is a great role model for girls as she shows how you can persevere no matter what.

  42. I make sure to model that behavior and to explain to them that you will get knocked down in life but your true spirit comes from pushing forward.

  43. This looks interesting! I will look into it, I love Netflix adaptations and this looks like another great one!

  44. Kayte CookWatts says

    My niece and I talk about the importance of bravery & kindness all the time. At five, she seems fearless- she will try anything once! It’s a joy to watch her grow.

  45. I was so hooked watching movies on Netflix. But it is a good timing, coz my niece will be visiting me, and it is a best time together, watching Ann with an E, oops with an E!!! AnnE!! She loves it!

  72. Cynthia C says

    I always taught my boys to stand up for their values and to value kindness to others. I think that is the greatest strength.
