Orphaned Heidi lives with her gruff but caring grandfather on the side of Swiss mountain, where she befriends young Peter the goat-herd. She leads an idyllic life, until she is forced to leave the mountain she has always known to go and live with a sickly girl in the city. Will Heidi ever see her grandfather again? A classic tale of a young girl's coming-of-age, of friendship, and familial love.
I decided to pick this book up as it had been sitting on my shelf for a very long time and it is a children's classic, so better late than never. I really quite enjoyed this.
I really loved Heidi as a character, she warmed my heart. Reading this book actually took me back to my childhood and it reminded me of the times I have as still do spend with my grandparents and just family in general. This book enhanced my appreciation to life itself and just how special and beautiful it is.
Reading this book made me feel really cozy and just happy in general. It gave me a sense of being younger, carefree and full of life. It is really scary how life goes by so quickly and Heidi truly helps you value and cherish everything in the present.
Overall, I adored this book and I loved everything it stood for. I am extremely glad I chose to read this and I think you should pick it up too!
Overall Enjoyment: ★★★.5
