The classic story of a little orphan who is sent to live with her eccentric uncle up in the Alps. When she is sent to live as a companion in Frankfurt years later, she misses the mountains - for life is more joyful in the Alps with her uncle, friends and goats; the air is fresher and everything looks more beautiful on #higherground

“I think you have to wait,” she said at last, “and keep on thinking that God has something good which He‘s going to give you out of the sad thing, but you have to be patient. You see, when something‘s awfully bad, you don‘t know about the good bit coming, and you think it‘s going on forever.”

Yay! It finally arrived. Ordered this a few weeks ago. I adore The Shirley Temple film but have never read the book! Kept hoping to find a copy at Barnes and Noble but finally just ordered it online. #bookmail

rohit-sawant Such a fabulous edition! This was the first novel I read growing up. 2y
EvieBee @rohit-sawant Really?! What a wonderful memory. The first novel I read I couldn't finish because it was too scary. But it started me on my reading path. ☺️ 2y

A little sad to finish this book. It instantly became a favorite with its almost fairytale atmosphere 💜 Makes me even more excited to go up to the mountains in a few weeks to visit my own grandparents ⛰

I've been building up a new bookcase in my basement for when my girls are older. I still need to dig through some boxes in my garage to find some of my old books, but I have been collecting books from various places to add. Then I decided to buy them each a "nicer" book every year for their birthday. Florence's birthday isn't until May but I just got her book and went ahead and added it. ???

Primrose always remind me of our trip to Switzerland. Outside it was cold & snowy. But inside these cheerful blooms were on every table in every cafe.

I just love the classic Heidi. It's set in one of the most beautiful lush countries. I was blessed enough to travel to Switzerland and around Europe with Washington Ambassadors of Music during the summer of 2014. Switzerland is the most beautiful setting and I love this story. #iwishiwasthere again. 😘

For #usedbooks, today's #augustphotochallenge

I loved HEIDI as a young girl (age 8-10) & it helped me understand the love of a place in ways I wouldn't have been able to otherwise.

It came to me from my mother's bookshelf, and is all the more meaningful for having been shared with her now that she's gone.

DebinHawaii Lovely--the book and the memories ❤️ 3y

When I read books aloud to my kids, I find it hard to properly judge a book as its so tied to the experience of reading with them. I know Heidi is a problematic book: class issues, ableism, and incredibly preachy BUT I'm so glad I read this to the boys.

ReadingOver50 One of my childhood favorites 😄 3y

Don't you hate it when GR doesn't have the exact edition you're reading? I'm reading Heidi to my kids now. First time for any of us that we've read the novel, but we've read the Golden Book version countless times. (Mine when I was a kid: an antique!)
