I haven't been reading a lot of chapter books with the kids lately because Vern usually handles most of bedtime with the older kids (he's on the last of the Chronicles of Narnia books), and Peace makes it hard for me to read to the kids any other time. But we did manage to finish this book.
It was lovely. Pollyanna plays 'the glad game' where she finds something to be glad about with anything that happens. It's sweet and something that we should all be play in our everyday lives.
When you read this book, you'll have to try not to laugh at the amount of times the author uses the words "ejaculate" and "erect" in everyday speak. ("Well, I never! Now, what does she mean by that?" ejaculated Mrs. Snow.) It's funny and constant.
"Exciting at the end, and I liked the glad game." - Ezra, age 6
"I really, really, really, really, really liked it. And it is a good book. I recommend reading it." - Ocean, age 8
"Stop reading Pollyanna Mama." - Peace, age 2
