But frankly, corny is good for the soul, even if jaded me felt like rolling eyes sometimes. It surprised a lot of laughter out of me (specially her Annesque steamroller-chattering and the romance tangle) and quite some tears, so even if it goes to the preachy/edifying/anvilicious grouping of Heidi...

Voyez-vous, quand on cherche des raisons de se réjouir, on oublie les choses qu'on n'a pas comme la poupée dont on rêvait.- Quel est donc ce jeu? s'enquit le pasteur.- Il consiste à trouver des raisons de se réjouir quelles que soient les circonstances. Ce dont hommes et femmes on besoin c'est d'ê...

One of my favorite films growing up (and still to this day much to my mother's chagrin) was Pollyanna starring the magnificent Hayley Mills (remember the original Parent Trap?). The story of a young girl orphaned and sent to live with an aunt she had never met (and who was less than thrilled to be t...

I've read Pollyanna several times many years ago. It is a wonderful story about optimism and finding a silver lining in any situation. I'm still trying to play "The Glad Game". I can't and don't expect to live in a moment of total happiness obsession, but “The Glad Game” can help you focus on what...

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. ...

This was the second time that I'd read this book and I enjoyed it. I re-read it for my Classics Club challenge but also because this is the book that the Kindred Spirits book club on Goodreads, which I am member of, was reading in February. The Kindred Spirits decided to read this book, because ther...

This was a surprisingly good book. Pollyanna is not an insipid character. Rather, she is a strong, young woman who makes a game of finding silver linings in gray clouds. But more importantly, by her irrepressibly, she brings a town full of repressed, early 20th-century Yankees, into people who begin...

"Pollyanna" is a very sweet book about an 11-year-old orphan girl (Pollyanna) who comes to live with her grumpy Aunt Polly. Accustomed to living only on what comes in the mission barrels, Pollyanna has made a game of finding something to be glad about in anything.Before long, she has managed to mee...

It was a nice book, but I think I would have like it more if I were younger or if I did not read Anne before this one. I could not help comparing both stories: orphan girl with freckles who goes to another town and lives with a severe spinster, and changes the life of the people. While I fell in lov...
