As a child, Heidi was one of my favorite books. I have probably read it a hundred times over. It is about a young girl sent to live in the Alps with her grandfather. She loves climbing the mountains and helping her friend, the goat herder, Peter. She loves the Alpine flowers and sunsets. I loved it because I could relate a lot to her, and love stories with animals and mountains. Heidi is an awesome book for anyone who loves simple, beautiful, sweet stories.
