E-Book photos taken by me. When I found this on my NLB Overdrive, I thought it would be a good fit for our current reading theme, especially since giant goddesses, like Anna Swan, are rare and far between. Anna Swan was born near Tatamagouche in Nova Scotia. She continued to grow and grow, perhaps already as tall as I am I am tiny, by the way when she was only four years old. Similar to the realities of people who are different from everybody else, Anna had her fair share of taunts and ridicule. Yet, what struck me the most about this picturebook biography is the gentleness and quiet dignity in which Anna led her life, notwithstanding her being constantly perceived as an outsider. Definitely a picturebook biography you should add to your library.
