Ah, tis the birthday of Johanna Spyri, born in Switzerland in 1827. She is best known for her book Heidi. The classic movie of Heidi does not do the book justice, in fact it's quite different from the book. Heidi is another Prodigal Son story. It's a wonderful story.

But there's more- Heidi Grows Up is good too. And then Heidi's Children answers all the many questions you develop while reading Heidi. Since we collected old books and they fill many bookshelves in our home, we have all three of these books, plus more of hers.

My kids grew up with me reading aloud to them, even into their teen years.
