Hear Heidi if you’ve ever longed to see the Swiss mountain slopes. This story transports the listener from the fine air and freedom of the mountaintop to the confines of Frankfurt, back to the peaks again, bounding in flowered fields with goats at your heels and sky utterly surrounding you.We meet Heidi when she is 5, led up the mountain by her aunt who has raised the orphan but must leave now for a position in Frankfurt. In a mountain cottage overlooking the valley is Heidi’s grandfather, and there with him the girl’s sweet, free nature expands with the vista. The author’s voice is straightforward, and so is our reader’s, with the child’s wonder, devotion, and sometimes humorous good intentions. When Heidi is taken from the mountains and nearly doesn’t make it back again, the most humorous as well as most heart-wringing scenes occur. All she learns during her absence from the mountain she brings back as seeds that will grow to benefit everyone around her.

The reader speaks very clearly but gives a lot of slightly off inflection/word emphasis. Still very listenable. I remember loving this story as a young child. It isn't really meant for adults.

This is the first book I ever read when I was about seven. I just read it again at 76 and the magic is still there. Wonderful! I have kept it all of these years.

This is a moving book. I know that it was written for children but I only read it as an adult, and I loved it more than words can describe. I will be reading this to my own 5 year old daughter in the near future.
