Core Classics Series Stories loved for generations come to life for today's young readers in the Core ClassicsTM series. Faithful to the style, plot, and themes of the originals, Core Classics are designed for use as classroom editions of the literary works listed in the Core Knowledge Sequence. They include introductions by E. D. Hirsch Jr., editor of the Core Knowledge© Series (What Your Kindergartner - Sixth Grader Needs to Know). The Core Classics are generally considered suitable for fourth and fifth grade students. The texts are illustrated, annotated, and include a brief biography of the author. From the Introduction When Pollyanna was published in 1913 it created an amazing sensation among readers and rapidly sold more than a million copies. People were very attracted to the story's cheery main character. They wished they had her outlook on life. Since then, Pollyanna's name has become a word in the English language that is used to mean someone who tries to find good in everybody and every situation, someone whose optimism is so blind that it seems a little silly.
