The one I remember is actually of Heidi with a lamb and her grandfather. I believe she was wearing a red dress but it was so long ago I'm probably wrong.

I still remember when the TV network cut off the last couple of minutes of a football game to show "Heidi", and what an uproar it caused (several touchdowns were scored in those last few minutes, and there were an awful lot of unhappy viewers!)

Happy WW!

My fifth grade teacher read Heidi to us one chapter at a time. I loved it and still remember little bits of it vividly after all these years.

I had a plain red linen hardback, as the dustjacket was lost. Heidi was an inevitability for me, having as I did an Alp-obsessed mother!

Lovely covers. I don't have any specific memories about Heidi. Although I do remember having a Heidi doll :)

I remember reading this in school. I need to go back and re-read some of the books I loved then.

Sadly, I've never read the book. I only can remember the movie version with Shirley Temple.

I'm rather fond of Heidi. As for covers, the fifth one in your post with Heidi shading her eyes and looking up the mountain seems most in keeping with the time period and the nostalgic, sentimental feel of the book.

I read a "charming classics" version aloud to my daughter about 6 or 7 years ago. I remember that there were some beautifully descriptive passages in it, but that there were also some bludgeon-you-with-the-message scenes. Overall, I found it more slow-going than charming. On the other hand, my daughter remembers it fondly.
