“And most generally there is something about everything that you can be glad about, if you keep hunting long enough to find it.”

When young and upbeat Pollyanna is left an orphan, her life seems to be very bleak. Pollyanna is sent to live with her Aunt Polly, a cold woman who does not share Pollyanna’s optimism or joy. Pollyanna resists falling into sadness, until another tragedy shakes up her world.

Left paralyzed by a terrible accident, Pollyanna finds that staying happy is not always going to be easy. As she realizes the misfortune that she has had, she finds it harder and harder to stay positive and bright. But the light of the lives Pollyanna has touched is passed back to her, and she journeys through her difficult circumstances to learn how to find the things to be glad for.

Pollyanna is a hopeful story about optimism, family, and choosing joy no matter the circumstances. This timeless classic is beloved by readers of all ages.
