Summary

Filled with the power of love and the beauty of nature, Heidi is a lyrical tale about a little girl sent to live in the mountains of the Swiss Alps with her grandfather. A grumpy recluse, her grandfather has isolated himself from his fellow townspeople and his church. In very little time, Heidi warms his heart; and she quickly charms the whole town and makes new friends, including young Peter, the goatherd. But when Heidi is sent away again to care for a young girl her own age, she must grow wise beyond her years, learning invaluable lessons that she will impart to others to better their lives.

In her best-known book, Johanna Spyri portrays how a child's radiant joy and simple faith can transform the world around her.

Good book for audio

Well read. I enjoy listening as I go to sleep. This is a great audio for that or for listening to it you've not read the book in younger years.

Wonderful story!

Enjoyed the story though out. Will read it again I'm sure. Wishing I was able to share it with my granddaughters when they were younger.

Heidi

This was so poorly done. The first words in the sentences were cut off. POOR!
