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 happil [...]
Eu estava TAO FELIZ de encontrar e leer isso Nao, na verdade, eu estava.
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 [...]
I m GLAD I read it
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 [...]
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 [...]
My teen daughter and I read this on the way to a soccer tournament and it was a great conversation starter on so many topics one s approach to life and bad events or circumstances, communication styles, charitable endeavors, gender roles, and on and on I m sorry I didn t pick up Pollyanna until now, but enjoyed it immensely and was glad to have read it and finished it right before Thanksgiving pun intended
Absolutely lovely Such a sweet book Highly recommended
Such a sweet story I really enjoyed this one.

When did I first read Pollyanna I couldn t say This little book is a perennial favorite It s been a few years since I picked it up and this time I found that my memory had deceived me again What you remember is a story about a girl who wants everyone to be glad, and who gets a happy ending at last What you get is a story about an orphaned girl sent to a loveless home who reaches out to the troubled people of a small town, resulting in a wide variety of pathetic tales of woe and loss Pollyanna s [...]
Slatka draga Pollyanna To je djevoj ica koja uvijek u sebi i u drugima mo e prona i ne to zbog ega e joj biti drago Svi bismo se trebali povesti za njenim primjerom Jer za Pollyannu disati ne zna i ivjeti U ivotu treba u initi puno vi e.Hvala Sanja, to si mi ovu krasnu knjigicu posudila na itanje

It has taken me a while to get to this book, I distinctly remember watching the movie several times as a child.I thoroughly enjoyed it It comes with a very strong message, and even some marital advice Pollyanna is terribly good Her ability to play the game of always being so nice, her absolute charm is almost of the Mary Sue type character.However as a lesson, the book is wonderful, it is a gentle reminder that a lot can be gained by being gracious, nice, etc then by being horrible.
It s terrible to admit, but this may be the first time I ve ever read Pollyanna straight through although I ve definitely read it in bits and pieces I feel like people sometimes associate Pollyanna with syrupy sweet, too good for this world cheerfulness, but she s so much better than that She s such a real little girl talking too fast and too much, mixing her thoughts up delightfully, and sometimes being painfully blunt and observant, although of course she never intends to cause pain Even thoug [...]
What a great story I love Pollyanna s attitude, her glad game, and her outlook on all things I would love to know this girl I would love to be this girl I read this aloud to my daughter and she greatly enjoyed the story as well Now we will move on to Pollyanna Grows Up and see if we enjoy that one as well.
After reading the Hunger Games trilogy, followed by somber nonfiction, I felt ready to read something good Not good as in well reviewed literature, but something good as in happy literature Eleanor Porter s Pollyanna did not disappoint.You ve probably heard someone called, been called, or possibly hopefully not called someone a Pollyanna It s someone who is considered impossibly optimistic in the worst possible circumstances Such people are thought to be annoying, naive, even exasperating, and P [...]

Pollyanna gets a bad rap in this jaded age Written in 1913, this is the story of an orphaned little girl who makes the best of her life experiences, always looking for something good to be had of a challenging situation Pollyanna lost her mother at an early age, and then her missionary father a few years later As a family, they themselves lived a life of privation, while ministering to those less well off.Upon the death of her father, Pollyanna is sent to live with her Aunt Polly, who as she see [...]
This book deserves its position as a children s classic.The little orphan girl, Pollyanna, is sent to live with her gruff Aunt Polly after the death of her father What a potential set up for a sad life outlook, but she manages to transform not only her aunt but many other townspeople with the Glad Game her father taught her Always look for the silver lining in every cloud and you ll be bound to find it.I ve noticed Pollyanna has been given a bit of a bum rap in recent years She s almost always p [...]
There are many classics that I did not read as a child Treasure Island, Frankenstein, Robinson Crusoe, Around the World in 80 Days, and Little Women are but a few.However, I vow to systematically read these treasures in the next few months Today I read Pollyanna.Published in 1913, this gem stands the test of time It is delightfully sappy, corny and wonderfully filled with old fashioned fun.Pollyanna is an orphan whose father left her with the wonderful gift of optimism and the ability to find so [...]
I loved the movie and i can t wait to read the book I loved loved this book It was so beautifully written There were moments when I just wanted to cry from happiness The way Pollyanna touched everyone she met was amazing There isn t anything better than smiling so much after finishing a book When I feel bad or sad this will be the book I m going to read to feel better.
Pollyanna Whittier ovvero, storia di una piccola santa della letteratura infantile, resa martire per mancanza d immaginazione dell autrice e salvata in extremis con prevedibile miracolo finale.La cosa irritante di questo libro non tanto la protagonista, che in fondo solo una bambina scema Il vero dramma sono gli adulti, tutti pronti ad abboccare a questo suo benedetto gioco della contentezza Salva perfino una mezza prostituta Cristo con la Maddalena in confronto na schiappa.Capisco il messaggio [...]
Inspirational And, to my surprise, it wasn t that cheesyI wonder why people say that about this book I have no plans to watch the movie.Recommended to ages nine and up It s sad, but clean and ultimately uplifting.Discussion questions 1 If the readers haven t read Anne Of Green Gables, skip this question Compare this book to LM Montgomery s work Which was better How did the books differ Etc.2 Discuss the ending Was it too pat happy Or was it right for the story 3 Was Pollyanna a Mary Sue or just [...]
It was the very first BOOk that I read At 9 years old I don t remember it very well, and it took like AGES to finish it And probably I didn t like it, because it was an obligation, BUT it opened the doors to this very world that I just adore, nowadays So, it s a 5 stars
Vamos brincar amigos do jogo do contente , onde fica combinado que veremos beleza e coisas boas em tudo, mesmo que sejam coisas que n o nos pare a boas, mas que ir nos ensinar a dar valor nas coisas que temos
The concept of the Glad Game was actually interesting to me when I started reading this novella And really at some points during my everyday life I found myself playing the game , and it did help sometimes, to my surprise However I did have a problem with the comparisons that Pollyanna used throughout the story I am against comparing oneself to others as I see it the ultimate cause of unhappiness If the author had dealt with this point better I believe it would have been a better book in general [...]
I was thoroughly surprised how much I enjoyed Pollyanna, and to think I was never going to read this book The fact is Pollyanna has a bit of a bad reputation stemming quite possibly from the general cynicism of today s day and age It s true that there are some shortcomings to this novel 1 Quite a big chunk of the book seems to be just like Anne of Green Gables and in parts Anne of Avonlea the disgruntled neighbour part It starts off just like the Anne books do, and Pollyanna is just as extrovert [...]
I have clearly lived under a rock not that this is news I have heard my mom reference Pollyanna about a million times but until a couple of weeks ago didn t realize she was a book character I m not sure where I thought my mom and others got that name, but I m not too swift on the uptake I really wanted to hate this book, and frankly there are things to hate But its impossible to hate it as a whole It s overly simplistic, ridiculously sweet and still touching I think you d have to be dead inside [...]
