    Great read for those who need some love in their life

    I had just seen the movie of this book and thought it was so cute. Its about poor orphaned Pollyanna who moves in with her up-tight spinster aunt who feel its only her "duty" to have Pollyanna. The more pollyanna goes into the town, the more she brings by introducing everyone to caring, fun, and energetic personality and showing every situationn has a silver lining by her "glad game". But just as Pollyanna brings the most that she can-a traumatic accident hits that not even Pollyanna can find joy in. You will laugh, cry, and look at the world through all new eyes after falling in love with Pollyanna.

    greatest book I've read in my live!

    'Pollyanna' is a great book. I gave this book 5 star because it has big prints for kids who have difficulty reading small prints and the pictures are really pretty!

    I LOVE THIS BOOOOOK!

    Pollyanna Whittier is a young girl. Her mother, Jenny Whittier, already died, and her father has recently died as well. Now that she is an orphan, she is sent to go live with her strict, and rich, Aunt Polly. Pollyanna soon does most of the things anticipated by her aunt. When she is running errands in the town, she changes the lives of villagers. As she interacts with the townspeople, she meets a mysterious man named Mr. John Pendleton. After days of trying to get him to say hi and talk with her, one day he asks a lot of questions and they get to know each other throughout the book. She brings him to safety and calls Doctor Chilton. Very soon after that happens, Pollyanna herself mistakenly believed that she could run across the road before the oncoming motorcycle zoomed by. Very, very, unfortunately, she did not make it in time. She is rushed home and the doctor is immediately called. Tragically, Pollyanna finds out that she can not walk ever again in whole her life. Miraculously, Dr. Chilton knows another doctor in the city that can actually fix Pollyanna¿s legs. Her Aunt Polly tells her that Doctor Chilton and she used to be engaged but somehow got in a fight and never talked to each other for 7 years. Now that Pollyanna is in the hospital getting her legs repaired, she must stay there for a couple more months. Finally, Aunt Polly and Dr. Chilton get married right in the hospital!<BR/>Pollyanna is one the brightest girls I have ever heard about! She is so thoughtful of others. The genre was historical fiction and I don¿t like historical fiction. But to my surprise, the book was so touching, that it made me want to read it all over again! I am sure my mom would love to read this book because she is easily touched by these types of stories.

    Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter

    Pollyanna is a preacher's daughter and has been glad for everything ever since she was little-- yes, even the bad things.


    Little Pollyanna becomes an orphan as a kid just about my age, and is sent to live in a town with her Aunt Polly. Aunt Polly doesn't seem to like Pollyanna, but Pollyanna keeps on keeping on.


    Pollyanna then goes on to help many townspeople learn how to love and be glad. At the end, tragedy happens to Polly's dear niece. Will Polly be able to reflect that gladness that Pollyanna shone on her?

    So Sweet, awesome, cute, heart-warming...

    When I was in elementary school, (I am in college now) I read the book and loved it! I have watched the Disney movie, too, and have also loved it. I got my first My American Girl doll then, and named her none other than Pollyanna. I had been enthusiastic about everything except for chores and summer since. Eleanor H. Porter, I owe you one! Please respond to "Pollyanna College Girl!" Haks!
