(PDF KINDLE) [Pollyanna] ↠ Eleanor H. Porter
Of my absolute favorite books is Heidi I adore that story I love that bright sunny child I love the troupe or Archetype of the sunny child that changes the lives of veryone around them Pollyanna did touch me reading this I really The First Ghost enjoyed it When I am in my good place and I m not listening to the inside negative wounds I can very much have this sunny positive outlook and people tell me that I radiate this and it boosts their mood I m afraid since school got so rough that I don t feel like I have had that in uite some time So I do love reading this story She brightened my heart I need to find my way back here because it makes me feel balanced in this placeWhile I read this my brother got Disney plus and so I watched the movie of Pollyanna The two have similarities of course and they are also very different I have to say that I thinkach one the book and the movie have the strengthens and weaknesses and both do some things better than the other The movie did a better job of showing how Pollyanna affected the town than the book and the book did a better job with the Aunt Polly and their relationship and how Pollyanna melted her heart I love the accident better in the movie than the book It is glossed over which is okPollyanna is compared to a prism in this story and it s wonderful She takes the sunlight and makes it sparkle into all the beautiful colors of the rainbow I think it s a beautiful metaphor She also is the sunshine that shines into other people and reminds them of all the many colors in life that get forgotten I think the simplicity of the glad game is the best way to play It has to be the simplicity of a child I did wonder if I could write my version of HeidiPollyanna for a modern setting MaybePollyanna has some very hard knocks in life Both her parents die and she must move in with a bitter old Aunt who shoves her away in the stuffy attic The ntire town is mostly filled with sourpusses and she comes in and flips the script on the whole town It s a beautiful story I also like the reverse script of this where there is a town full of happy good folks and one humbug has to change their heart Christmas CarolGrinchI also appreciate how Pollyanna can be around these horribly grumpy people and not let them get her down or put her off Again and again the adults try and scare her off and she keeps shining her light That is something I have a hard time doing When someone is out of sorts I usually try and disappear I don t keep shining light I have a lot to learn from PollyannaI cried in both the movie and the book It brought me to tears I was touched by the outpouring of love from the townspeople to Pollyanna I can t believe I haven t read this yet and I m so glad I did read it For me and who I am this is a must read and I need it for my libraryPSI am getting an newer phone than I have and I am wanting to start a little booktube channel nothing fancy just talking books and I m sure this will have to make an appearance Maybe the niece and nephew will come on The niece wants to make a barbie video so who knows I might procrastinate and it will never happen or it might happen to make a barbie video so who knows I might procrastinate and it will never happen or it might happen can t say I will have to get over my camera shyness Pollyanna is an interesting book It was published only four years after Anne of Green Gables and both stories have a similar storyline a plucky young girl of leven or so is orphaned and has nowhere to go Both Pollyanna and Anne struggle with their appearance and both are received in a lackluster way by new caregivers who aren t sure they really want themBoth girls also work their magic by having a sort of unflagging optimism that turns the stingy hearts of others around themBut after about three chapters in my 11 year old turned to me and said Mom did this author copy Anne of Green Gables And I must admit I was wondering the same thing There are some differences in the storylines Pollyanna is known for her optimistic thinking and her Just Be Glad game where you uickly try to improve negative thinking by using the mindset that you should just be glad that Anne is better known for her poetic proclamations of natural beauty and her imaginationThe middle of the story finally won us over and we stopped making comparisons to Anne but then the tidy nding irked me and we settled on a 354My daughter summed up this middle grades read rather nicely by saying in her new prepubescent tone Mom I m glad we read it but Anne of Green Gables is way better than this one.

Eleanor H. Porter å 9 summaryTo stay away from the classics as a child and unfortunately I have a feeling ven today that children prefer newer books than classics like this which is a shame as they are really missing outAs classics go this was surprisingly asy to read The language is clear and mainly written using words we use today xcept for sometimes when Pollyanna spoke That girl also spoke ten to the dozen and at times it felt like she went on and on As with nearly all Alma classic books this has xtra reading material at the back as well as a uiz and a glossary of terms used back in 1913 This is a beautiful book that I really njoyed The words just flowed and the plot was so vivid and I felt like I had travelled back in time Wow What have I been missing all these years As a child I grew up on the Disney movie of Pollyanna and thought it was just wonderful I was nev I picked this book up because I needed a book over 100 years old for my reading challenge this year and being written in 1913 making it currently 102 years old it just fit the billI didn t really go into this book with any xpectations I ve never seen the movie I knew nothing of the plot but I was intrigued to read a book written for young readers so long agoI am happy to report that this book was delightful I was smiling the whole time I read it and was surprised and impressed how many of the themes Pollyanna speaks to being happy for what you ve got sending money away to people far away rather than helping those right in front of you for the sake of that number being in the reports AI Weiwei: Beijing Photographs, 1993-2003 etc were still relevant today I was heartbroken and completely surprised about the twist near thend but was still so thrilled with the positive message that stayed throughout the book Pollyanna unwaveringly assumed the best of people which is something very few do It was so powerful seeing how the grownups in this book reacted to Pollyanna falsely assuming their intentions were usually better than they were What a great little book Even if Pollyanna seemed larger than life sometimes I don t think it was a bad thing I know I ll be playing the glad game long after putting this book down Pollyanna is the story of a young optimistic girl who is tragically orphaned sent to live with her grumpy Aunt and The Bubble Economy: Is Sustainable Growth Possible? ends up changing a town s point of view through her sunny disposition It s supposed to be inspiring In fact it s probably the idea bud for books like The Power of Positive ThinkingPollyanna theternal optimist plays the glad game where she always tries to find something to be glad about no matter how challenging Also veryone who comes into contact with Pollyanna is happily inspired by her wonderful positive outlook and becomes a nlightened person because of it I was only The Social Machine: Designs for Living Online eight years old when I read this book Conseuently I bought this message hook line and sinker I made it my mission in life to be happy and positive all the time and tried to have that perfect Pollyanna disposition It s now so ingrained into my psyche I probably couldn t get rid of it if I tried People still give me ghastly looks sometimes and say Oh my God you re always so happy How do you do it Let s face it though the Pollyanna disposition is a bunch of crap Nothing is patronizing then to have somebody tell you after your job has been downgraded and your pay cut in half You should be glad you still have a job That maybe true but that doesn t take away the outrage of having been screwed by yourmployerBeing positive all the time is like crushing a piece inside of you Sometimes you just want to bitch grump and spew a bunch of obscenities Sometimes you re just sad and don t have the Collision Course: Endless Growth on a Finite Planet energy to try to find the gladness I ll be honest I loved this book as a child but I could not read it again It d just piss me off One of my favorite books when I was a girl A delightful read Pollyanna likes to play the glad game This was written in 1912 and one of the interesting things is that very concept is a healing concept It s about shifting our perspective from seeing the wrong to finding something to be glad about Gratitude is uite a powerful tool and being positive can bring our livesase We had several classes discussing helping people shift their perspective like this to help them heal From this idea comes the word being a Pollyanna a Goody Goody Or An Overly goody or an overly person Still there are many studies that have shown that people with an optimistic outlook on life live longer healthier livesOne. Ad Game an optimistic attitude she learned from her father The game consists of finding something to be glad about in very situation It originated in an incident one Christmas when Pollyanna who was hoping for a doll in the missionary barrel found only a pair of crutches inside Making the game up on the spot Pollyanna's father taught her to look at the good side of things in this case to be glad about the crutches because we didn't need to use
them with thisWith this and her own sunny personality and sincere sympathetic soul Pollyanna brings so much gladness to her aunt's dispirited New England town that she transforms it into a pleasant place to live The Glad Game shields her from her aunt's stern attitude when Aunt Polly puts her in a stuffy attic room without carpets or pictures she xults at the beautiful view from the high window; when she tries to punish her niece for being late to dinner by sentencing her to a meal of bread and milk in the kitchen with the servant Nancy Pollyanna thanks her rapturously because she likes bread and milk and she likes Nancy Soon Pollyanna teaches some of Beldin.
