Books That Show the Power of Positive Thinking

In my opinion, the best example of this type of attitude is "Pollyanna" by Eleanor H. Porter

Arnon Hi,
I finally made it here. :)
Please help me understand what you are doing with this list in relation to Sunshine Club.

Lanelle I was asked to speak to the ladies about gratitude and literature. After some brainstorming, I decided to remind everyone about 'the glad game' that Pollyanna plays in the book. I was hoping to find other books that demonstrate the same philosophy: keeping a positive frame of mind during trials. Thanks for making the effort to help me. I hope you have some more books to add to this List.


message 3: by Arnon (new)

Arnon What about Jean Valjean. He experiences redemption, freely given to him from the Bishop - a metaphor for the redemptive love of God. He is changed and tries to live a life of love and service motivated by gratitude for what he received. I am out of town and don't have access to my copy of the novel. When I get home later this week I will see if I can find any specific quotes.


message 4: by Lanelle (new)

Lanelle That sounds good. If you think "Les Miserables" should be on the list, go ahead and vote for it and any other books that are already on the list and others that you think of.
