Annabelle received this book for her birthday from my mom and dad, and was encouraged to read it before her next visit to their house so Grandma could watch the movie with her. We did it! I'm excited for her to watch the movie to compare the two. First, my comments, later I'll add hers. I really enjoyed this book. By the end, I'd decided it was such a nice breath of fresh air! After all the fluff of the Fairy books I've read with her, it was nice to read a book about real people, with hearts, and devotion to humanity through service and love. And a love of God, too. Heidi learned that God is a loving being, who knows what is best for each of us, and wants to be part of our lives, if we let Him. But if we don't, he can't be. She learned to trust Him. A GREAT story with values I treasure. Sooooooooo glad I read it with my daughter. But it will be interesting to see what she got out of it, since she's only just 5. ------- What did you think of "Heidi"? I thought it was a great book, but there were some parts I had to say something on it. Like what? I don't remember what I said. Would you recommend this book to other people to read? I think maybe my Dad's class would like it. What do you think about Heidi as a person? I think she was a great little girl. Why? Because she was really kind and cared for the people she loved. Like who? She loved her grandmother's. And she loved her grandfather. And she loved her friend Clara. And she loved the new friends she made- Mr. Sessemen, and the doctor. Why do you think she loved them? Because they were taking care of her and they also cared for her. And they loved her. Tell me about Clara. Well, she became great friends with Heidi when she first met Heidi. And she played with Heidi a lot, and she loved her. And they shared their lessons. What is the story of "Heidi" about? It's about a little girl named Heidi that gets to walk for a LONG time with her Aunt to her Grandfather's house. Then she gets to meet her grandfather. Then they make a bed for Heidi when Heidi is in the house. Then Heidi explores in the house. And she liked the house. A lot. Then it was time for her to go down and meet Clara. But she didn't know how to read but she had to read in her lessons. So, they taught her to read. And then she was reading to Clara and her Grandmother. (We got interrupted and couldn't finish the story. Maybe another time).
Yes, this is a comic book version of the national hero of Tibet, Milarepa. And I did rather enjoy it.
