Review: Pollyanna | Eleanor H. Porter

I remember reading the Golden Books version of Pollyanna as a kid, and wanted to read the novel now given it's status as a classic. 

 I was very pleased to find that although the language has dated, the moral of the story is still very valid in today's society (usually the case in a classic). 

Pollyanna was an easy and uplifting read, and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a break from reading heavy crime novels, and who need a little 'sunlight' between the pages.

Rating = *****

Carpe Librum!

I also thought the book was an enjoyable and uplifting little read, and the message it carries is even more relevant today than when it was written. Thanks for the recommendation!
