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 themBoth girls also work their magic by having a sort of unflagging optimism that turns the stingy hearts of others around themBut after about three chapters in my 11 year old turned to me and said “Mom did this author copy Anne of Green Gables” And I must admit I was wondering the same thing There are some differences in the storylines Pollyanna is known for her “optimistic thinking” and her “Just Be Glad” game where you uickly try to improve negative thinking by using the mindset that you should “just be glad that Anne is better known for her poetic proclamations of natural beauty and her imaginationThe 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 354My daughter summed up this middle grades read rather nicely by saying in her new prepubescent tone “Mom I'm glad we read it but Anne of Green Gables is way better than this one”

Died taught her a trick for life – the 'Glad Game' – the aim of which is to find the good in every bad situation Before long Pollyanna’s sunny outlook has brightened up the whole town But when a horrible accident occurs can the Game save PollyannaIncludes exclusive material In The Backstory you can test your knowledge of the book and find out if y. 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
