Glad Books Series


The Glad Books series by Eleanor H. Porter is about a young orphan, Pollyanna, who goes to live in Vermont with her wealthy but stern Aunt Polly. Pollyanna’s philosophy of life centers on what she calls “The Glad Game” (an optimistic attitude she learned from her father), which consists of finding something to be glad about in every situation. Pollyanna has been adapted for film several times, with the best known being Disney’s 1960 version starring child actress Hayley Mills, who won a special Oscar for the role.
