We have several copies of Heidi. Some are the original story, some are abridged picture-book versions. We just happed to pick this one up to read and Charlotte loved it. It's a shorter version with great vintage pictures. It's not quite in chapter form so we read a couple pages at bedtime and naptime. I think Charlotte loves the character of Heidi (who wouldn't!?) and keeps asking questions about her.
I remember reading Heidi when I was little and I loved best her bed in the hayloft with the window and the murmuring of fir trees.
