Eleanor H. Porter æ Pollyanna KINDLE

Ve wherever she goes But when tragedy strikes Pollyanna finds her optimistic attitude tested and she must learn to find happiness againA heartwarming tale that has become one of the most love 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 billI 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 agoI 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
