Pollyanna (Aladdin Classics) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
|Kindle Edition, Feb. 21 2012|| |
From School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-Unloved and unwanted, orphan Pollyanna Whittier boards an eastbound train to live with her Aunt Polly, a wealthy spinster. Aunt Polly treats the child insensitively, giving her a musty room in the attic and expecting her to keep quiet and stay out of the way. Pollyanna, with her optimistic outlook on life, turns all the lemons thrown her way into lemonade; punishments are viewed as rewards, unfriendly people in town are befriended. Pollyanna's "Glad Game" is soon played by all the people of the town. A terrible accident with a motor car as she is crossing the street finally breaks Pollyanna's spirit. When long-held secrets are finally revealed, even Aunt Polly comes around to warming up not only to her niece, but to a relationship she had long denied herself. This recording is based on the book by Eleanor H. Porter, originally published in 1913. It remains a charming, albeit old-fashioned, classic. Barbara Caruso's narration is faithful to the text, with a few minor changes sprinkled throughout. Caruso makes use of vocal inflections to differentiate characters. There is no background music or sound effects to distract listeners. Comparable in quality to Pollyanna read by S. Patricia Bailey (Blackstone Audiobooks, 1996), this recording is preferable to the same title available from Chivers (1995).-Stephanie Bange, Dayton & Montgomery County Public Library, OH

Overall very impressed with the quality of the book itself, also was delivered a week earlier than promised!
As for the story.. this abridged version of Pollyanna is just fantastic! So inspiring for little ones. There are also questions in the back for each chapter to guide parents in how to use the book as a learning experience!! What a bonus!!
The story is interesting and you can learn a lot from Pollyanna. I’ve implemented The glad game In my life and it really improve the way I see things.
However, the story can be very boring at some points and it may be the turn off for the reader.
Overall, it’s good book but not the best book around.

All I can say is I'm so GLAD I did!!! What an absolutely delightful story. I'm a pretty positive person so I can see why this story has come to my attention, but the little girl in this book just comes alive through the pages. You can picture her bounding around full of energy and appreciation for life.
Reading it truly does make you aware of how much we all have to appreciate in life and in all honesty, I never wanted this book to end! Just lovely!
