About the text:
“Play with Heidi high in the Alps. At the age of five, little orphan Heidi is sent to live with their grandfather in the Alps. Everyone in the village is afraid of him, but Heidi is fascinated by his long beard and bushy grey eyebrows. She loves her life in the mountains, playing in the sunshine and growing up amongst the goats and birds. But one terrible day Heidi is collected by her aunt and made to live with a new family in town. Heidi can’t bear to be away from her grandfather; can she find her way back up the mountain, where she belongs?” (from the publisher)
The Heidi Set includes Heidi by Jonathan Spyri, the Student Guide, and the Teacher Guide.
