CLASSICS CLUB

HEIDI – JOHANNA SPYRI

Here is another review for the Classics Club which if you don’t already know, is a club where we make a list of a minimum of 50 classics we want to read in 5 years or less and then we blog and talk about the book after we are done. Join here if you are interested and here is my original list

Now I’m sorry, I keep on posting reviews and I really want to post things like tags, tbrs, wrap-ups, etc but I still don’t have the time but in one more week, school will be over and I can post twice a week, catch up on my reviews and keep you all posted on what I’m reading.

So, once again, I apologise for the short post but I’ve planned a lot of new posts that I’m really excited to write :))

He was up every morning at sunrise, and the sun came climbing up over the mountains at a very early hour during these summer months.

I read this a long long time ago and I’m really glad that I got to read it again when I was older because this is the sweetest little book.

Heidi is such a warmhearted little girl and I loved reading about her life and watching her grow up in the Alps. This book is perfect in the sense that it captures how free Heidi feels in the mountains and I loved how she drank milk from the goats, picked flowers on the hills and slept on a bed made of hay.

Now I can’t even begin to describe how much I love the setting and just the feeling of this book. I want to go to the Alps and just climb on top of a mountain, and … you know …

But my favourite thing about this book was the setting and the descriptions of the Alps in the morning and during the springtime with millions of flowers and during the winter with lots of snow and also at night, when the mountains turn red as the sun is setting.

But because this is a children’s classic, there is not much I can say about it except that I really enjoyed it, I thought it was such a sweet, heartwarming, cosy book that gave me strong Sound of Music vibes.
I just loved everything about it and it’s pretty hard not to.
