As soon as Pollyanna arrives in Beldingsville to live with her strict and dutiful maiden aunt, she begins to brighten up everybody's life. The 'glad game' she plays, of finding a silver lining in every cloud, transforms the sick, the lonely and the plain miserable - until one day something so terrible happens that even Pollyanna doesn't know how to feel glad about it.

Optimism is something that is hard to find. People tend to only see the negative parts of life, and then concentrate on them. Seeing the good things of life is an easy forgotten art, despite how simple it may be. This is especially something that happens a lot in today's society.
That is why Pollyanna, while being an classic, is the perfect book to read for young and old. Pollyanna is an optimistic girl who plays the 'glad game'. Which is simply just a game of finding stuff to be glad about in every day life. The harder it is to find something, the gladder it'll make you.
I found myself to be highly entertained by the effects of Pollyanna teaching people the glad game. It even made me appreciate the small things in life more.
Highly recommended for anyone who wants to read something lighthearted.
