This month my boys and I read Heidi by Johanna Spyri. Heidi is the classic tale of a young orphan that is brought to live in the mountains with her grandfather whom she has never met. Heidi and her beloved mountains show that love and time can heal a multitude of wounds. The book focuses almost completely on the fairer sex, so I wondered what my sons had thought of it.
Did you like Heidi? Both agreed - "Yes it was actually pretty good!"
What did you like about it?
Perry said-"I liked Peter and when Clara learned to walk."
Did you have a favorite part?
Buzz said- "Yes, I liked when Uncle Alp turned nice!"
What was the funniest part?
Perry said- "I didn't really think it was funny."
Buzz said- "I thought it was funny when Grannie thought they were going to take Heidi back to the city."
What was the scariest part? Both agreed - "It was scary when Heidi was "the ghost""
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Both agreed - "Yes, it was kinda cool."
So there you have it...looks like Heidi is not just a girl's book afterall! :)
