A Book for Boys and Girls Oct 19, 2008
Written by Kurisa Suhr If you think this book is just for girls - think again! A story that involves overcoming the biggest struggles that life has to throw at you is something that can help everyone. We all face difficult problems in our lives and Pollyanna is a story that will touch your heart. She is a ten year old girl who turns life into a "Glad Game" and finds a positive way of looking at very difficult challenges in her life. The characters are not just girls and women and the stories are about true problems that we all face. Pollyanna is a special book with a special message for everyone.
A classic, for a good reason. Sep 8, 2008
My nine-year-old girl loves this book and I've enjoyed reading it with her. We all know people like those described in the book that are over-critical, grumpy about everthing, never satisfied or loners. Pollyanna applies her charm and glad-game to each of them and melts even the iciest personality. The vocabulary of older writing appropriately challanges a young reader. Short chapters make for easy stopping places when it's time for lights out.

I think the Pollyanna novel is a book we should all read and learn from. Life is always hard, and we should be grateful for things that we have. Pollyana, a young girl who has just lost her father, does that in a soft way that encourages people to be glad, without completly condeming them for their bitterness. This "glad game" is not just for kids, its for adults as well. Being thankful for the little things: family, freedom, and others is important, and we always take that for granted in America. I would recommend that you not listen to the nay-sayers about this noval, they seem like embittered happless people. They don't seem to understand that this book is teaching a vaulable lesson. Overlook them and read the book for yourself, you won't be sorry you did.

A joy to revisit. Apr 28, 2008
I grew up with Walt Disney's story of Pollyanna. I still have the LP record album of the movie soundtrack. But I was pleasantly surprised to read the original story and find such depth of character and meaning. I highly recommend this delightful book.
