Heidi & Peter
For those who did not grow up reading the children’s book Heidi we offer this brief explanation. Heidi is one of the best selling books of all time. It is the story of an orphaned, young, city girl who goes to live with her grandfather on his farm in the highlands of Switzerland. Heidi becomes friends with the young goatherd Peter and has many adventures.
This is the very barest of sketches and we encourage you to find a copy to read to your children or to yourself. Though a children’s story it is enjoyable on an adult level, too. Do read it before you see any of the several movies made from the book.
