Publisher Description

When Pollyanna was published in 1913, it became an overnight success. It immediately sold over a million copies as young and old alike fell in love with the little freckled orphan girl and her spirited optimism.

Many of Beldingsville’s citizens are ill, misguided, and even despairing. The sparkling, ingenuous eleven-year-old who descends upon them with her “glad game” gives them renewed hope and changes their lives forever. Then unexpected tragedy strikes, and Pollyanna can no longer find the silver lining in any cloud. Can a child’s suffering possibly serve any purpose?

    " This book looks at the virtue of positivity. Pollyana suffers a number of challenges and disappointments which she faces by finding the positive. She reaches outwards and uplifts others in a touching tale. Ultimately, she faces a challenge that she is unable to bear, but is lifted up and supported all the people she positively influenced through her example. I read this book to help me think about how we face challenges and the types of stories we tell ourselves in the process. "
