An easy read, but I prefer un-adapted and un-abridged books.

Heidi is a wonderful story of a young girl in the Swiss Alps. Heidi is an orphan girl of five years old who goes to live with her reclusive grandfather on a remote mountain in the Alps. Heidi's winning ways positively influence all around her. She loves nature and people and thrives in her new environment. Changes come to Heidi in her new home, but Heidi endures and does not forget those whom she loves.

Classic children's story about a young girl who finds healing for herself and others in nature. Includes reading group guide. Not the classic translation--a bit more modern.

Five year old Heidi goes to live with her grandfather in his lonely hut high in the alps. She quickly learns to love her new life with him. But her strict aunt decides that Heidi must be sent away again, to live in town. Heidi cannot bear being away from the mountains and is determined to return to the happiness of life with her grandfather.

Whenever I'm reading a classic that starts talking about what people used to eat, it never ceases to amaze me that our ancestors managed to survive at all. If it's not 'Wuthering Heights' talking about gruel and feeding children milk for supper, it's 'Heidi' making claims that all people ate for days at a time was cheese. Amazing.
