This book was definitely my favourite silver birch book. I thought it was amazing that when Anna was only 4 years old she was 1.4 meters and when she was fully grown she was 8 feet tall!!! I also thought it was sad that she lost her baby daughter when she was born and that her baby son only lived 11 hours. Her and Martin must of been so sad. I loved this book so much and I reccomend it to people who like storys of people's lives.

Hey there it's DJPopular and I'm here finished reading a new book named The Extraordinary Life Of Anna Swan By Anne Renaud! Well I think this kind of book are cool to read. I mean she was literally a giant. It would be awesome to meet Anna Swan. But sadly she died so did her children at birth and only for 11 hours. spill. I like how the author kept my attention to reading the book instead of making me falling asleep. It was the best to see the pictures of Anna Swan. Awesome job Anne Renaud! You can learn facts about Anna Swan like she lived in an extraordinary house.It's different but fun to read! Well that's my opion on the book see you next time on www.silverbirchonline.com!

This book is informative because it tells the life story of Anna swan the tallest women in the world.My favorite part is when they tell when Anna swans baby was born on august 1846.Also it was cool because it said Anna is almost 8 feet tall.

I loved this book and the fact that she was born in Canada (a small wood cabin in Millbrook Nova Scotia)make the story even better. But I wished the author would have maybe used more expressive language. But overall it was a great book.

The book "The extraordinary life of Anna Swan" is a very interesting book. I cant believe that when Anna was 4 a man who saw her playing with her dolls, thought that she was a grown women. That was a really funny part! Its sad that both of Anna's children died at birth or shortly after birth. In the book, it said Anna's children both weighed even more than she did when she was born! Anna's second child was the heaviest baby known to medical history! I recommend this book to everyone because Anna's life biography is really cool. Great book!

I thought that this was a really interesting book. I really liked how it told you how her family had to do so many things differently to fit her size, like how her father had to build her a desk that was bigger than everyone else's. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO PEOPLE WHO LIKE BIOGRAPHIES.
