Pollyanna (version 2)


Read by Phil Chenevert

(4.8 stars; 52 reviews)

In a small town far out West, 11 year old Pollyanna loses her mother then her dad to disease. This book describes how the orphan is sent to be raised by her aunt who lives far away in the East of the country. Unfortunately her aunt does not want her but accepts her very reluctantly only out of 'duty' and sticks her into a tiny hot attic room so she will be 'out of the way'. What Aunt Polly does not know is that Pollyanna is bringing the game of being 'glad' that her father taught her and that her irrepressible happy attitude will transform not only that dull and miserable house, but an entire village before she is through. (Summary by Phil Chenevert) (6 hr 6 min)

Reviews

enjoyable.

(5 stars)

This is a favorite of mine since I saw the movie as a child. I’ve tried to keep gladness in my life, difficult at times but it’s always in the back of my mind. The reader was pleasant to listen to as well.

Great reader, Positive book!!!

(5 stars)

I believe there are too few books and teaching about being positive and cheerful. There are certainly many people who need to learn how to be more positive and grateful. Thank you for sharing this classic!!!
