What is Heidi Reading? is dedicated to what our littlest worker (my 5-month-old daughter) is reading at home.
I thought my mom was crazy when she pulled out this classic… Jane Eyre. BORING!! But, I was wrong. I loved it! I loved counting out the 4 towers at Thornfield Hall.

Until then, I’ll keep reading these abridged classics. ~Heidi S.
