    1 thought on “Anna All Year Round

    1. Although Anna All Year Round, which is loosely based on the childhood of author Mary Downing Hahn's own mother, is rather episodic in nature (with not much of a plot and little narrative tension and excitement), the short, descriptive vignettes of early 20th century childhood (in Baltimore, Maryland) are pure delight; they might not be substantial, but they are sweet, caressing, and at the same time, very much historically informative. Anna all Year Round is thus basically a year in the life of [...]

    2. This book reminds me a lot of the books that my mother wrote, based on diaries kept by her and by several other members of our family. A lot of little vignettes about what life was like at the time. It is interesting to see the differences between now and then and between life in mostly rural Iowa and life in more urban Baltimore. In a way, some of the children's behavior lends support to a recent discussion I had with a friend about whether behavior of children had changed in the last few decad [...]

    3. gr 2-4 128 pgs1913 Baltimore, Maryland. 8 year old Anna loves her neighborhood, family and friends. Although she is excited about some of the new things that are appearing in her neighborhood like automobiles and birthday parties, she still loves hearing the sound of horse drawn wagons going down the street and roller skating with her best friend Charlie. Follows Anna's adventures over the course of a year. I would recommend this book to readers who enjoyed "Anna on the Farm"

    4. I saw this doing a search for another book, and thought it was one I had loved as a kid. But now, I don't think I ever read it! It's one year in the life of the author's mother, set in 1913. Anna was a whiny brat at times, but it was fun seeing her going through her days as something of a tomboy and her adventures with the trolley ride and town car, etc. Sweet and funny.

    5. Over all, I enjoyed this snippet of life in Baltimore in 1913. The main character, Anna, is just 8 at the beginning of the book, and turns 9 mid-way through. Really, these are little vignettes from the life of M.D. Hahn's mother's childhood, and some made-up stories to accompany those that Hahn's Mother told.I picked this book up because my Dad's parents were born in Baltimore in 1915, but there were no stories about their childhoods passed down by them. Anytime I see somebody else willing to pu [...]
