Heidi (Heidi #1-2)
At the age of five, little orphan Heidi is sent to live with her grandfather in the Alps. Everyone in the village is afraid of him, but Heidi is fascinated by his long beard and bushy grey eyebrows. She loves her life with him in the mountains, playing in the sunshine and growing up amongst the goats and birds. But one terrible day Heidi is...more

I normally read children's books during Christmastime. Not only to catch up with my Reading Challenge (I am behind by 10 books as of this writing), but also, most of children's books have life lessons that can be good reminders for the coming year. New Year always means new beginning, new hope. Do you remember when you were still in school and after reading a story in class, the teacher asked you what was the lessons you learned from it? So, in thi ...more

Ah, but then there was the period where I discovered Heidi and as I read and reread it a bunch of times, I most fervently wanted to become a goatherd, with all that this entailed. The bell. The sleeping snuggled into warm hay in the attic. The eating of too much cheese.
So taken was I with the idea of Switzerland that when we were asked, about grade 6, where we were going for the term holiday, I – who had never been on a holiday ...more
I loved Heidi as a child. This book was a dog-eared favorite! I did enjoy revisiting this book recently as part of a group read, as an adult. However, I do think that the magic of the book is best for children. I will fully disclose that 1 of the stars is completely nostalgic!
What I loved:
* The beautiful descriptions of the setting -- the Alps in Switzerland
* The fact that Heidi had such a positive impact on those around her ...more
The tears flowed out of my eyes without me noticing them...........
The story begins well and is lively and after certain chapters (after the first half, to be precise), the novel contains only pure and innocent happiness. Each chapter in the second half gets better and the happiness begins and flows through the chapters making the reader very sentimental and longing for such lovely landscapes, friendships, relationships, and hap ...more
Heidi is a childhood favorite.
All the evils of the world might be cured by mountain air, kindness, and goat's milk.
Vividly descriptive. Just whisk me to the Swiss Alps, bright with myriad blossoms, fragrant with fir and pine, alive with birdsong. The blessings of nature surround, the sun shines down all around, and never an unkind sound.

يبدو أن قصص اطفال القرن التاسع عشر هي الافضل , و اظن انه من الظلم ان نصنفها ضمن قصص الاطفال , فهي تصلح لكل الاعمار وفيها من الدروس الانسانية البليغة .
حسنت مزاجي بل و أِشعرتني ببهجة في الوقت الذي لم تتمكن من ذلك ثلاث كتب اخرى .
" النجوم تلمع لانها تعيش فوق في السماء و سعيدة , ثم تومىء لنا لانها تريد لنا السعادة ايضاً . اتعلمين ؟ ان الله يصلح كل شسء بحيث لا يكون ثمة داع للقلق . فكل شيء سيكون على ما يرام في النهاية "

من منا لا يتذكر هايدي ذلك المسلسل الكارتوني القديم؛ هايدي تلك الطفلة ذاتَ الخمس سنوات عندما كُتبَ لها أن تعيش مع عجوزٍ غامضٍ يتجنبُ مخالطة الناس، وينسجون عنه الحكايات والقصص لانزوائه عنهم أعلى الجبل بعد أن تخلت عنها خالتها ديتي... لقد غيرت كل ما حولها بصفاء قلبها وبراءة مشاعرها...

Clasicazo de la literatura infantil que creo que todos los que hayamos visto de peques su adaptación animada sabremos disfrutar.
Una historia para niños de las de antes, con bastante moralina y una presencia de la religión hacia el final demasiado pronunciada para mi gusto... y aún así me parece un libro delicioso y enternecedor, de esos que te hacen reír y llorar con sus adorables personajes.
Me quedo sin duda con la genial Heidi (una heroína infantil de la talla de Anne Shirle ...more
This was one of those rare books which instilled in me the gift of imagination, and taught me how to dream...
I believe it requires great skill to weave magic for generations, armed with nothing but a simple, heart touching plot and oodles of feel-good-factor! And Johanna Sypri is one such skilled author.
The story flows thus: Heidi, an orphaned little girl, goes to live in the Alps with her grandfather. She is the personification of innocence and gaiety. Living on goat milk, and grazing the herds ...more
El estilo quizás no es el más extraordinario ni el argumento muy profundo pero la historia y el personaje de Heidi es entrañable.

It's a slower read, for normal juvenile lit--owing to the fact, I'm sure, that it was written more than 100 years ago. Compared to other things I've read from the same time period, the book is a page turner! And it's a page turner compared to most of the adult fare I read, too. But it's not a lightweight book in terms of wordiness, length, and descriptions.
It does have a good dose of religion, but Spyri ...more
This book was sweet, but very unrealistic and unsatisfying. The child is too good, the characters too underdeveloped and the miracle too preposterous for my adult tastes. I think I will leave all the other childhood books that beacon my ...more

Ok, as far as I recall, I've never actually read this before. I do love the art of Tomi Ungerer so when I had a chance to pick up a copy of this edition, ISBN 0385302444, I thought it'd be fun. And, once I realized that Ungerer was doing an entirely different kind of work than I've seen before, and got used to it, I loved it.
Now I did have a thrill of recognition at the very beginning, in which Dete has Heidi ...more
Heidi was one of my most read books as a child. I think our family owned it so I could just pick it up and read it whenever I wanted to. I remember being entranced by the fact that Heidi's aunt made her wear ALL her clothes so there would be nothing to carry on the journey to Grandfather. It was a hot spring day when Heidi made that first climb up the mountain to her grandfather's cabin. I felt sorry for her being so over-dressed but I knew right away that the aunt was a "b ...more
