Loved by children and adults around the world, Heidi has sold over fifty million copies. Educators consistently choose Heidi as one of the top one hundred books for children. Unfortunately, the versions of "Heidi" most often read today—even when labeled "complete"—remove the story's essential Christian content. In this P&R Classics for Young Readers edition, Ranelda Hunsicker makes it possible for readers to enjoy a streamlined presentation of "Heidi" that remains true in every way to the original. Heidi's love of nature, her outgoing personality, and her adventurous spirit lead to fun and friendship . . . first in the Swiss Alps and then in the great city of Frankfurt. She has many problems along the way; how she learns to rise above them makes this book a treasure for readers of all ages.
