It's a battle of the books vs movies. And might i say an interesting twist. I admit the format of talking, made me somewhat drag my feet to finish. But I was bound and determined to finish!
A story of a girl, that brightened the spirits of all in her new town, when she goes to live with her Aunt Polly, after losing both her parents.
Most is the same from the movie, to my memory. Except for one. And I will tell ya if you ask!

For the 36th hour of the #24in48 readathon. 2 of my childhood books on top of a chair made by a friend for my daughters. Now my grandchildren love this chair/stool. I loved Pollyanna. I will not reread it and just keep those memories. I remember she was a happy positive person! The Bobbsey Twins I may revisit with my grandchildren Almost 16 hours read!

I can still see the movie in my head from my childhood. It was lovely to revisit it as a book. It really makes you feel glad. I was a little surprised that the story was more mature than I recall from the movie of my childhood. A great one for all ages. #readwomen

I just finished rereading this classic! While some people may consider it too saccharine for their tastes, I have always enjoyed the book and movie. Looking on the bright side of a situation is a skill that can help anyone.

I've never seen a more #cheerful character in fiction. What would you expect from the creator of the Glad Game? I just rewatched the movie a few weeks ago and realized I should reread the book. #JubilantJuly

My daughter has run out of books to read - I've just discovered this beautiful 1938 edition of Pollyanna which was a favourite of mine growing up - hopefully she'll love it too! 😊

Eyelit That's lovely! 2y

BookBabe @Alfoster omg, I loved it! It has a couple minor flaws, but overall I think it's a fantastic book. What did you think? 2y
Alfoster Yes, I agree! Didn't see where it was going and lagged a little 3/4 of the way through but was very satisfying overall! Love coming-of-age novels that are quirky! 2y
