Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter is the story of a young orphan girl, Pollyanna, who lives with her Aunt Polly after her father’s death. Aunt Polly, an aristocratic woman, only cares for Pollyanna as a sense of duty. This doesn’t deter Pollyanna’s boundless optimism, however. Regardless of what circumstances come her way, Pollyanna manages to see the good in everything. She plays the “Glad Game,” where she always finds something to be glad for.
