Publisher's Summary

"Pollyanna" is a best-selling novel by Eleanor H. Porter that is considered a classic of children's literature, with the title character's name becoming a popular term for someone with the same very optimistic outlook. Also, the subconscious bias towards the positive is often described as the Pollyanna principle...

The title character is named Pollyanna Whittier, a young orphan who goes to live in Beldingsville, Vermont, with her wealthy but stern and cold spinster Aunt Polly, who does not want to take in Pollyanna, but feels it is her duty to her late sister. Pollyanna's philosophy of life centers on what she calls "The Glad Game," an optimistic and positive attitude she learned from her father. The game consists of finding something to be glad about in every situation, no matter how bleak it may be. Thus she transforms everything around her, but will even stern Aunt Polly be affected?

It will make you glad. Truly.

The story is a delight, perfect for all ages (though forewarning, the word "ejaculate" is frequently used innocently and antiquatedly in place of the word "exclaim"). I enjoyed the narrator's performance, especially Nancy's voice.

The first classical book my son read and listen

We really love the pitch and intonation my son read and listen to. We are not English native speakers, but we can understand and enjoy this book well.
