30-Day October Book Challenge ~ Day 5

Day 5 ~ Book that makes you happy


Even the covers make me happy, so I posted two.




How could the story of an orphaned little girl who helps those around her while remaining singularly unaffected not make one happy?


One of my favorites of Heidi's loving acts is when she saves soft rolls for Peter's grandmother. Of course they become too hard for the grandmother to eat, but all turns out well at the end.


For a children's book, Heidi has its share of downright nasty characters, but love motivates throughout and will not be defeated.


According to Wikipedia, Heidi is one of the best-selling books ever written and is among the best-known works of Swiss literature.
