Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter

I realized while searching for a book set in Vermont for the 50 State Reading Challenge that I had never read Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter. As a fan of Hayley Mills during my childhood I've seen the movie and most of us know the story. The book is delightful (a little like Anne of Green Gables) with a happy child who always finds something to be glad about. But I'm sad to say, with all the horror stories of abductions and children being treated badly, the days when a child can wander through town making friends with adults are long gone.

I enjoyed this book. My sister read it aloud to her children and they loved it.

I read this a few years ago, and really, really liked it.

I've never read the book either, but loved Hayley Mills back in the day. Ahh - nostalgia
