Orphaned at an early age and taken in by her young aunt Dete, Heidi is soon in the way. Dete has a new and better job where Heidi is not welcome, so the child must live with her curmudgeon of a grandfather high on the Alm Mountain in the Swiss Alps. Everyone calls him the Alm-Uncle because he never comes down to the village, even in the coldest winter, and he’s developed a reputation as an evil, godless old hermit. But Heidi soon finds that things are not always what others say they are, makes friends with the Alm-Uncle, and happily runs wild in the glorious mountains with the goat boy, Peter, and his goats.

Suddenly, Dete appears again, and Heidi finds herself confined in a stone house in a stone city where she is expected to be companion to the invalid Klara. Dete sees this as a great opportunity for Heidi, one that will provide her with an education and polish. But, bitterly unhappy away from her grandfather and the outdoor life she has grown to love, Heidi at last makes her way back to the Alm. How Klara finally comes to the mountains as well, and the surprising events that follow, form the heartwarming ending to a story that has been loved for generations by children all over the world.

    " I read this book for the first time the summer when I was 8 years old. I was stuck in bed with rheumatic fever. It was the first book I had ever read that transported me to another place. I was on the mountain with Heidi and Peter. It was an amazing experience for me, and it is what made me love reading and books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna | 2/18/2014

    " I love this book! I learned things from it myself. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ramona | 2/16/2014

    " I used to love this book when I was little. I remember reading it to my little sister. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Indu | 2/12/2014

    " Very charmingly written..reading it feels like actually being there in all the places she describes "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurie | 2/12/2014

    " First "real" book I ever read and still my favorite. Interesting to see how my perspective has changed over the years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cherice | 2/11/2014

    " Reading this with my own mother from the 1945 edition her older brother gave her as a 9-year-old, brings cozy, happy, content, and being loved feelings. I shared this book (the same 1945 copy of their grandmother's) with my 2 nine-year-olds and they were endeared by Heidi, the goats, and the beloved Alm Uncle. A timeless classic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katelin | 2/9/2014

    " I read this back in elementary school, during a summer vacation. It's not a bad story; I liked it. Nothing to get excited about though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claussius | 2/7/2014

    " Only one word describe it.... Charming. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol Tonnies | 2/6/2014

    " My favorite book to read to my children, but make sure you have a good translation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gabidok | 2/6/2014

    " When on primary school, I had horrible choices of books to read, all about dragons, witches and very bad literature, so my mum start giving me her childhood books, and Heidi was one of those, and how I loved! So simple and so powerful! I read over and over again. Till today, I can close my eyes, and be on the mountains where Heidi was, with the goats, and taste a bread with a big chunck of thick cheese. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karlyne Landrum | 2/3/2014

    " This book is in a class by itself. It doesn't matter that I've read it dozens of times; it still reads as fresh as the Alm air and as delicious as the toasted cheese Grandfather makes over the fire. It's not timeless -- it definitely belongs to a day gone by -- but it is a time worth returning to for the sheer goodness of Heidi and for the love of the mountains and their healing beauty. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda Nyawara | 2/1/2014

    " I admire Heidi. She and I have some similarity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Raevyn | 1/30/2014

    " What can I say? It's good. It's a classic. And the language wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristina Noelle | 1/29/2014

    " My childhood book along with Little Women "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 1/25/2014

    " There's a reason this one is a classic. It teaches so many good things, and for that reason it is on my favorite list. Heidi learns to turn to God during times of trial. She learns that although our prayers aren't always answered exactly as we hope they will be at exactly the time we would like, God always knows what is best for us and often has something better in store. Her example of optimism and especially of selfless love is inspiring. After reading this I am craving a good outing into nature. The Alps sound absolutely irresistible as described by Spyri. It teaches the consequences when we do something wrong through Peter's story. Although the plot is a bit predictable, the good morals that are taught in this book completely outweigh that for me. I loved it and I hope my children read it someday. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hayle | 1/20/2014

    " I love this book so much. I had got this book froma church and then I started reading it. When I read that Hiedi's mom and dad had died I didn't cry but I felt sorry for her. I thought Heidi's grandfather was mean and didn't care about her. But when Heid's aunt came to get her he think he cried but I am not sure. The picture I saw was him crying but I was really happy at the end. This is my favorite book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robin | 1/19/2014

    " I'm still choking on the treacle. I didn't read this book as a child, so I have no fond memories of it. Reading it as an adult, I appreciated the glimpse of Swiss alpine life, but found the relentless message, that good cheer and faith in God make life turn out right, tiresome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shruti Tiwari | 1/17/2014

    " One of the best books that I ever read as a kid .. This book still gives joy as I think about all the experiences and adventures of Heidi. Wish to re-read this one again very soon, this time as a kid-who-has-crossed-20! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mari | 1/13/2014

    " It's a book that makes you happy "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robbie | 1/13/2014

    " I read this when I was maybe Heidi's age. Loved it. Wanted to move to Switzerland and get a friend in a wheelchair. Klara was so nice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arshia Zehra | 1/7/2014

    " i loved the innocence,joy and happiness portrayed in this book in the form of Heidi.....i really liked her desire to wish to see everyone a happy being......simply PERFECT!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/7/2014

    " I adore this book. It's so light hearted and absolutely beautiful to read. I am always transported to a wonderful world full of hope beauty and innocence "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emilysa | 1/7/2014

    " After owning this book for over 20 years...I finally finished it. The description of the mountains and nature pushed this from a 3 star to a 4 for me, as natural mountain beauty is somewhat limited for me right now. It's a little preachy sometimes, and a very simple story, but I finished! Go me! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 1/4/2014

    " This was another amazing, down to earth book :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Selvi | 1/4/2014

    " I edited out a lot of the back story of the grandfather and various stereotyping. I liked some of the discussion of God and prayer, but edited out some of that too. We read the unabridged version and it was fine. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carissa | 1/2/2014

    " Loved it! Read this with my 10 yr old daughter and I'm sure I got more out of it than she did. I do know that it caused her to think quite a few times and we had some great discussions. A great story for the soul! My 11 yr old son really liked the book too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Niecole | 1/2/2014

    " Read the story after seeing the tv programme when I was a child. The book streches out a litte, but it will always stay a classic. The wonderful story of a girl, her relationship with others, her grandfathers love for her, her love for her friends and freedom "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allison | 12/27/2013

    " I read an edition unknown, I think the cover was red. It was such a cool story! I wanted to be so good- like Heidi! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaitlin | 12/24/2013

    " A great book full of life and joy. Heidi is like a bird in the story, flitting here and there, spreading joy wherever she flies. I love the way Alm-Uncle opens up on account of his little grandchild. Although no one in the village could reach the old man's heart, Heidi could, and did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 NaDell | 12/23/2013

    " I read this with my daughters over the last few weeks. We enjoyed it. I had never read it, but it was one of my grandmothers favorite movies (the one with Shirley Temple) so I watched it many times. It's a great book to read with your kids. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Haley Grizzell | 12/18/2013

    " This story of love, forgiveness and friendship touches our deepest emotions. However, it is also extremely predictable and dry writing. An ok book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danielle W | 12/15/2013

    " Wonderful read - hard to put the book down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Artemis Eclectica | 12/9/2013

    " 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.

    " I loved this book in a way I could never love Little Women or Anne of Green Gables, and I have no idea why. I think something about it just appealed to me. However, the sequel is actually BETTER. "
