    Book Reviewed by Stacey on www.whisperingstories.comEleven year old Pollyanna has been through such heartache Her mother died a few years ago and now her Minister father has tragically died too The only family she has left is her Aunt Polly who lives in Vermont in a big house on a hill.Polly Harrington is a forty year old wealthy woman who lives alone in a large white house with green shutters In her prime, she was a lovely young woman but over the years she has become stern and arrogant and likes to be alone She knows it is her duty to take in her niece, though she really doesn t want to.Miss Polly has lots of hired help at her home, including general helper Nancy, Gardener Tom, Driver Timothy, and Miss Durgin the Washer Woman The staff are all looking forward to having a young girl in the house, even if Miss Polly isn t 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 1913 by Eleanor H Porter and her name has over the years has come to mean, an excessively cheerful or optimistic person Look it up in a dictionary 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 That is until a tragic moment and then it s up to the people of the town to remind Pollyanna what an inspirational young girl she is.The book is all about how a little girl who can see the good in every situation even when others can t and that maybe if you look hard enough you can too.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 The language is clear and mainly written using words we use today, except for sometimes when Pollyanna spoke That girl also spoke ten to the dozen and at times it felt like she went on and on As with nearly all Alma classic books, this has extra reading material at the back, as well as a quiz and a glossary of terms used back in 1913 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.

    Pollyanna is the story of a young, optimistic girl who is tragically orphaned, sent to live with her grumpy Aunt, and ends up changing a town s point of view through her sunny disposition It s supposed to be inspiring In fact, it s probably the idea bud for books like The Power of Positive Thinking.Pollyanna, the eternal optimist, plays the glad game where she always tries to find something to be glad about, no matter how challenging Also, everyone who comes into contact with Pollyanna is happily inspired by her wonderful, positive outlook and becomes a 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 I made it my mission in life to be happy and positive all the time, and tried to have that perfect Pollyanna disposition It s now so ingrained into my psyche, I probably couldn t get rid of it if I tried People still give me ghastly looks sometimes and say, Oh my God, you re always so happy How do you do it Let s face it though, the Pollyanna disposition is a bunch of crap Nothing is patronizing then to have somebody tell you after your job has been downgraded and your pay cut in half You should be glad you still have a job That maybe true, but that doesn t take away the outrage of having been screwed by your employer.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 Sometimes you re just sad and don t have the energy to try to find the gladness I ll be honest, I loved this book as a child, but I could not read it again It d just piss me off.

    I picked this book up because I needed a book over 100 years old for my reading challenge this year, and being written in 1913 making it currently 102 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 I was smiling the whole time I read it, and was surprised and impressed how many of the themes Pollyanna speaks to being happy for what you ve got, sending money away to people far away rather than helping those right in front of you for the sake of that number being in the reports, etc were still relevant today I was heartbroken and completely surprised about the twist near the end, but was still so thrilled with the positive message that stayed throughout the book Pollyanna unwaveringly assumed the best of people, which is something very few do It was so powerful, seeing how the grownups in this book reacted to Pollyanna falsely assuming their intentions were usually better than they were What a great little book Even if Pollyanna seemed larger than life sometimes. I don t think it was a bad thing I know I ll be playing the glad game long after putting this book down.

    Wow What have I been missing all these years As a child I grew up on the Disney movie of Pollyanna and thought it was just wonderful I was never introduced to the classics or even realized that Pollyanna was a book turned into a movie When I sat down with my chidlren to read this story I THOUGHT I knew what I was reading to them, but boy was I wrong It soon became apparent that this was another true o the test of time classics that takes you through all the emotions of a true clssic My children fell in love with sweet litle Polyanna and we all cried and laughed along with her and for her My children each had such a touching emotional growth of faith, compassion and empathy through this reading that I wish all children had a mommy to read this story to them Read this one to your chidren no matter their age and share the beauty of real life

    Pollyanna, read when I was in elementary school, is one of the books that helped to form my character The concept of looking for the good in everything, even in events or people that showed no obvious goodness appeared, to my young mind, both a good idea and a challenge First in imitation and later as habit I began to look for the good Recently I received a copy of a college application essay a young friend had written about me, an influential person in her life The characteristic in me that she chose to describe was my propensity to find the shining moment s in each day and to hold onto them Pollyanna is still influencing young people through me forty years after I read the book.
