For @tpixie some very quick (& not great!) 😆 pics of the illustrations, endpapers & cover page of this Puffin edition. I think they are the same inside illustrations as my long ago childhood copy & the illustrator is listed as Cecil Leslie. The end pages are cute.

tpixie Thanks! Great end pages! 2mo

This is a cute quote: ‘At the moment when our story closes‘

The book on the left just has the first half of the story, whereas my Kindle and the book in the right contain both the first and second book of Heidi.
It is very interesting how different the translations are!!
(Why did the library put the code bar over the title???)
This was another fun read for #ChildrensClassicRead2024 Thanks @TheBookHippie

TheBookHippie 🙃♥️🙃 My library has that on a lot of the older books, I wonder why?! 2mo

#ReadAway2024 #MarvelousMarch #readathon

Finished last night & read with #ChildrensClassicRead2024
I hadn‘t read (or been read to) Heidi since I was a small child or seen the movie in eons so it was fun to go back to the Alps with Heidi. She is adorable but I forgot how much of a little butt head Peter was! Lots of charm, sweet & fun. Who doesn‘t love an alpine field with flowers & goats?!? Just mean old Miss Rottenmeier I guess!!💛🐐🌱🐐🌼🏔️

TheBookHippie 💛💛💛💛💛💛💛 I want a goat now…🐐 2mo
DieAReader 🥳Great! 2mo
tpixie Great review! I was quite taken aback by Perter‘s jealousy and behavior! 2mo

#HyggeHourReadathon

Tonight‘s #HyggeHour is taking place on my couch, my “Mood is Chill” playlist. Finishing up some weekend journaling & then hopefully finishing up Heidi for #ChildrensClassucBuddyRead & of course, I needed some Cadbury Mini Eggs as the season is almost over. 💛

Mood is chill, trying to be positive about a busy & challenging work week.

tpixie @DebinHawaii I love that cover. How are the illustrations inside? I‘m thinking about buying it for a family that has a goat herd. I‘m trying to decide whether I should get the Barnes & Noble or the Puffin. ( I generally love penguin/puffin covers) 2mo
DebinHawaii @tpixie I‘m going to make you a post of some quick shots. They seem to be older illustrations like I remember from childhood. 2mo

#HyggeHourReadathon

Tonight‘s #HyggeHour is being spent on my couch with Heidi for #ChildrensClassicRead2024 along with some dessert Cadbury rainbow mini eggs. 😋

I‘m reading the e-book, but there‘s no photographs. These are the library books I checked out.
The top Viking Press edition has very interesting historic information in the margins along with illustrations.
The bottom Julian Messner New York edition has some black-and-white illustrations throughout with a few colored as well. ( I thought Heidi had blind hair!)

PurpleyPumpkin What a lovely cover!😍 I borrowed the audiobook from my library and when I added it to my Goodreads shelves, I realized just how many covers there are!!! Of course, none resembled my cover. 🙃 3mo
mrp27 😍😍😍 3mo
batsy I'm reading it on Serial Reader, which is nice (one installment a day with my morning coffee 🥰) but no nice cover 🫤 3mo
TheBookHippie @batsy oh nice!!! 2mo
tpixie @PurpleyPumpkin Goodreads says there are 3320 editions!!! @TheBookHippie is that the Puffin book? I thinks that‘s the edition I might buy for my granddaughter. My ebook has no picture on the cover & the link to the photos doesn‘t work , but I checked out 2 versions from the library with great pictures! 2mo
TheBookHippie @tpixie link to my book. I have purchased the hard cover puffin as gifts before and it‘s lovely as well. 2mo
tpixie @TheBookHippie oh! Thanks! That‘s a great edition also!! 2mo

BarbaraJean I‘ll have to post some more pictures of mine—I‘m reading my mother‘s childhood copy, published in the 1940s. I posted the title page last week, which has a note from the friend who gave it to my mom on her 10th birthday. 🥹 (edited) 2mo
UwannaPublishme Gorgeous cover! I‘m reading a 1963 edition I found at a thrift store. 2mo

For some reason, I cannot access the illustrations on my e-book. I went to my library and checked out a couple books. The illustrations in this The Whole Story Edition are really neat because they have historical information as well!

My second time reading Heidi as an adult and I still enjoy it. I like the descriptions of the beautiful landscapes, the idyllic life on the Alps, and the themes of family, friendship, and kindness. A gentle and comfort read.

I'm starting off strong with this classic, first published in 1880. It gives me Anne of Green Gables vibes. A delightful, young girl is sent to live with her grandfather, who is a lovable curmudgeon.
After reading this I want to go visit the Alps! #MiddleGradeMarch @megnews

Johanna414 I used to check this book out from the library regularly, just because the author and I shared a name. Literally never read it… 🤦‍♀️ 1y

14 Nov-4 Dec 2021 (audiobook)
A classic story that stands the test of time (if you do not overthink the practicalities of a wealthy invalid girl living in the alps with only an old man and a child). Beatrix was very emotional when Heidi was tricked into leaving Grandfather and concerned she may never return. Heidi‘s homesickness and deteriorating health are heartbreaking. Clara‘s journey to the mountains and recuperation pleased her greatly.

This book filled #translatedbookpublishedbefore1945 for #readingwomenchallenge and #publicdomain for #booked2019. My daughter loved the Netflix series based on this book a few years ago but I‘d never read the whole story. Absolutely charming characters and a sweet, happy story about the power of kindness and forgiveness. Loved it.
