  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rosie Brocklehurst | 1/22/2014

    " This was a well worn favourite as a child -I think it was the fresh air on the mountains and the love of the goats, and the simplicity of everything -I loved and the relationship with the Grandfather. I remember the food (don't all kids?) goatsmilk and black bread, and the first white rolls that Heidi tastes). Wonderful book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anam | 1/1/2014

    " This book is a definition of the easy joys in life that can be taken for granted. Such a simplistic tale told with the childhood perspective of Heidi's. A must read that shows that not all childhood enjoyment is materialistic in nature. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann Jacob | 12/8/2013

    " It was really good. About a girl who lives in the mountains and how happy she is and how she gets to know everyone. I loved this book. It was after a lot of days i got a book which kept from keeping it down. It wasn't much different but i felt really close to the girl. It's a really amazing book. "

    " This book is a wonderful read! Within those lines in this book lies some wisdom and simple happiness that we seldom turn to in this busy life.
