In her prime, she was a lovely young woman but over the years she has become stern and arrogant and likes to be alone. They hope that over time she will bring joy and laughter back to what was once a house full of love and happy families. Pollyanna was written in by Eleanor H. This is because little Pollyanna named after her two aunts Polly and Anna is always happy and sees the best in people. Even though Pollyanna has been through so much hardship and heartache she is always upbeat and brings joy to the townsfolk who come to adore her.
I never read this book as a child, though I had known of it and had seen it about. Most likely because I tended to stay away from the classics as a child and unfortunately, I have a feeling even today that children prefer newer books than classics like this, which is a shame as they are really missing out.
As classics go this was surprisingly easy to read.
Pollyanna (Pollyanna, #1) by Eleanor H. Porter
The language is clear and mainly written using words we use today, except for sometimes when Pollyanna spoke. This is a beautiful book that I really enjoyed. The words just flowed and the plot was so vivid and I felt like I had travelled back in time. View all 6 comments. Sep 16, Willow added it. It's supposed to be inspiring.

Also, everyone who comes into contact with Pollyanna is happily inspired by her wonderful, positive outlook and becomes a more enlightened person because of it. I was only eight years old when I read this book. Consequently, I bought this message hook, line and sinker.
How do you do it? Being positive all the time is like crushing a piece inside of you. Sometimes you just want to bitch, grump, and spew a bunch of obscenities. View all 30 comments. Oct 06, Julie rated it really liked it Shelves: in-the-middle , vermont. Pollyanna is an interesting book. It was published only four years after Anne of Green Gables , and both stories have a similar storyline: a plucky, young girl of eleven or so is orphaned and has nowhere to go. Both Pollyanna and Anne struggle with their appearance and both are received in a lackluster way, by new caregivers who aren't sure they really want them.
Both girls also work their magic by having a sort of unflagging optimism that turns the stingy hearts of others around them. But, Pollyanna is an interesting book. There are some differences in the storylines. The middle of the story finally won us over, and we stopped making comparisons to Anne , but then the tidy ending irked me and we settled on a 3.

These characters and especially this sweet sunshine girl Pollyanna made me just smiling in nearly six hours. Absolutely charming and lovely. I wish I, mys 4. I wish I, myself, could remember and live after Pollyanna's "Glad Game" strategy every 'cloudy' day. If we followed her idea would probably life and everyday life become so much more fun for everyone.
Pollyanna Whittier is a young orphan who goes to live in Beldingsville, Vermont , with her spinster Aunt Polly. Unfortunately doesn't Miss Polly want to take in young Pollyanna, but feels it is her duty to her late sister.
Sorry, this book is not available.
It doesn't start that well But Pollyanna is a brave little girl and her philosophy of life is what she calls The Glad Game , she just has to find something to be glad about in every situation.

I picked this book up because I needed "a book over years old" for my reading challenge this year, and being written in making it currently years old it just fit the bill. I didn't really go into this book with any expectations. I've never seen the movie, I knew nothing of the plot, but I was intrigued to read a book written for young readers so long ago.
I am happy to report that this book was delightful.
