Heidi by Johanna Spyri is a book worth reading.  I read an abridged version as a girl.  One year I read it to my fourth grade class.  This past week I read it for enjoyment.  If you read it as a child, it would be worth picking up to read again as an adult.  If you have never read it, pick up a copy at the library to read.  If you are unfamiliar with the story, it begins when Heidi is a five year old and goes to live with her grandfather.  Over the course of several years, Heidi grows up some and experiences many different adventures.  What children's classic novel would you recommend everyone read?

This book never was on my to read list, but perhaps it should be? You make it sound appealing.
