Johanna Spyri (1827-1901), a lifelong resident of Switzerland, began to write stories to earn money for refugees from the Franco-Prussian War. "Heidi", her first novel, was also her most successful, though she wrote many other children's books. Spyri's firm belief in the natural innocence of children and their ability to grow up into decent, caring adults if left to their own devices was remarkably similar to that of her Danish contemporary, Hans Christian Andersen.

Heidi is just one of those classic stories that will not only entertain, but touch your heart and is written in such a way that the character come alive to the listeners. I read this aloud to my children and both the boys and girls loved it. It's a very clean and wholesome story, but riveting too. I highly recommend it!
