    One thought on “Pollyanna”

    1. I read this one to my 4-year-old daughter. Both of us loved it. Not only did she understand the story, but she loved having the pictures on every page to look at. I read many of these Great Illustrated Classics books as a kid and loved them. I'm having a great time sharing these with my daughter now.

    2. A classic from childhood. Actually, I remember the movie better, with Haley Mills as Pollyanna (I think). The classic plot of poor little wonderful girl who becomes an orphan, moves in with an unsympathetic relation (aunt), and gradually turns the cold hard woman into a loving person. All the while, making friends with everyone in town, all of whom love her.Tragic accident, misery, eventual recovery. It is a wonderful book, full of optimism, happiness and a positive mental outlook. I recommend i [...]

    3. This book was really formative for me, and I recently realized the full extent of the impact it has had on my life. After learning to play the "Glad Game" at a very young age, I have kept that attitude of positivity with me to this day. The biggest takeaway from this book for me is that attitude is everything!

    4. I thought it was just okay, but my daughter liked it.Polly is a rather severe woman, who takes no nonsense from her servants or anyone else. When her brother dies, she very grudgingly takes in her only niece, named Pollyanna. Even though Aunt Polly does her best to raise the girl with strictness and no affection, Pollyanna's positive attitude in every situation soon has the staff of the house jumping to her every need.She makes friends everywhere she goes with her "Glad Game," from the invalid n [...]

    5. Sometimes I rate books based on writing style, sometimes on content, though I may like them equally but for different reasons. I gave Pollyanna 5 stars based on content (though there was nothing wrong with the style). My daughter suggested it to me after hurting my back because she thought I would really like it. I did. Pollyanna was an orphan who played a game her father taught her before he died; to find the good in every situation, something to be glad about. Pollyanna not only took this advi [...]

    6. Finally got around to reading the book that my wife was named after. And, I sure am glad I did it.

    7. Pollyanna can cure the dullest hearts and brings sunshine to the darkest places. She is just simply adorable!I read for #ReadKidsLit 2017

    8. I've seen the movie but never read the book. I used it as a read aloud for my 3rd grade class. Tomorrow we watch the Disney movie, & use a Venn diagram to compare & contrast. In the book Mrs Snow has black Curley hair. (Red in the movie) We'll make ice cream (Pollyanna thinks rich people eat ice cream every Sunday) we will take chandelier prisms outside & see the rainbows they make (science). We will taste fig newtons (Pollyanna learned to make fig cake with the Ladies Aide before he [...]

    9. Fans of the 1913 juvenile classic book POLLYANNA (and the sequel POLLYANNA GROWS UP) may enjoy discovering that there is one NEW HAMPSHIRE town that is glad to celebrate both fictional Pollyanna and her creator, writer Eleanor H. Porter: Littleton, New Hampshire. (Interested readers can find more info by searching online.)Author Porter was born in 1898 and raised in the northern New Hampshire town, which is not far from Vermont, the state where eleven-year old orphaned Pollyanna was sent to live [...]

    10. With responses to the challenges of life that are more "normal" than those of Heidi of the Alps, Pollyanna still influences and transforms life perspectives of many different people through her "glad game." Oh, to be able to live out the peace that comes from giving thanks - in everything (Philippians 4.6).Some of my favorite quotes:"You breathe all the time you're asleep, but you aren't living. I mean living - doing the things you want to do, playing out doors, reading.bing hills""he wouldn't s [...]

    11. Pollyanna was one of my favorite movies as a kid, so I was pretty excited to read the book with my daughter. I have to say that I was pretty surprised how much different the book was from the movie. I still really enjoyed it though! As I mentioned in my review for Charolette's Web, I'm loving being able to spend some extra time with my daughter reading, she has a love for reading already and I couldn't be prouder!

    12. I have read this book like, six times and I never get tired of it. it's a really sweet book. Pollyanna went to live with her aunt Polly and is the last thing Miss Polly wants. Pollyanna teaches her aunt an unforgettable lesson!

    13. I loved the books I read as a young girl. I don't think there is a classic that I would have rated less than. 5 Star. I didn't read then for composition, but for the sheer spell of the story and this was one I especially loved. Maybe I will read again.

    14. A friend had given this to me in primary school. It became one of my favorite classics to date. It also inspired me to learn how to be grateful for all the little things in life. And had me wishing I had red hair and freckles to. Lol!

    15. A sweet story and a good reminder to us to follow the verse in Philippians. 'Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say rejoice.'

    16. polyanna is a true classic and everyone loves it especially because it is part of the great illustrated classics group and i love all their books as well

    17. I'm liking this Great Illustrated Classics series. Another fun book to read with my kids and discuss. We finished this book the same day we started it. I love reading with my kids!

    18. I adored this book, it was warm, happy and all round fun, with a valuable lesson of being contented with what you have and bringing joy to others.

    19. Nothing like a good classic novel - this is an oldie that was on Rebecca's reading list. Thought I would re-read it so we could have a discussion - looking forward to when she reads it!

    20. My daughter read this after seeing the Disney movie. She said that she liked it, but there were many things different from the movie and she was expecting it to be pretty much the same story.
