Heidi, one of my all-time favorite books, is a heartwarming story of a young girl in the Swiss Alps whose kindness, optimism, and love of life has a transforming effect on all those around her. This engaging story is skillfully written with imagery, beautiful description, and elevated vocabulary. Readers also learn about Switzerland, the Alps, and life in the 1800s. If girls could only read one book in a summer, this is the one I would give them.
