I read the Heidi Heckelbeck books with a 3rd grader that I help with reading. She enjoys these stories immensely. The short chapters and pictures keep her engaged.I've just started reading the first one with my 1st grade granddaughter. She loves them!

I ordered this book for my daughter because she really enjoys Heidi Hecklebeck and I loved the Holiday Theme. She got it on a Monday and had it finished by Wednesday because she just couldn't put it down. Any book that draws her attention for that long is a winner to me!

My daughter (8) loves the Heidi Heckelbeck series. It's a great series for kids who've graduated to chapter books but still like to see occasional pictures for imagination. I have to add the Heidi is quite an adorable character!

Our daughter was not an early reader. When a teacher gave her a couple of these books it was wonderful to see and hear our daughter laugh as she read these books. The main character in this series is such a delightful little girl who involves herself in the silliest events. Such a great series.

Christmas has performed its magic and saved Heidi her day!Heidi was enthralled by her mother's bracelet of tidy trinkets with movable parts that she could not wait for it to be given to her at ten. She helped herself to it and it was smooshed by the snowplow! As usual her attempt to use the spells in the Book of Spells failed and she mustered her courage to admit her fault to Santa and prayed for a new bracelet and forsook her earlier gift asking. When things did not happen the way she wished, she admitted her fault to her mother. And Christmas worked its magic because Henry found his mother's bracelet intact amongst the Christmas decorations on their tree!

This is a nice chapter book. It has several illustrations on the pages so helps, when like myself am reading it out loud to my special needs teen age son that can't read for himself. This is apparently book #9 of a series but we have never read any of these books and found this story to be nice. Although she had a 'spell' she chanted to fix a broken braclet. That I wasn't to found of but that is my personal opinion. Nothing 'bad' about it just my own opinion about exposing children to spells and such. But that was just on a few pages not throughout the story.Wonderful story to help teach children to mind what their parents tell them. The little girl, Heidi, was told not to go in her mother's room and take a braclet from her jewelry box without permission. But she does take it and it gets broken right before Christmas. She feels horrible about it and knows her mother will be mad so doesn't tell her mom about it. The story is about what she does and at the end how her mother does react when she finally tells her.Heidi's little brother Henry, although not a major character to the storyline adds just a little extra 'fun' to the storyline as well

My granddaughter is six and loves to read so I went looking for books that she would enjoy. I found the Heidi Heckelbeck series and bought her the first one. She liked it so much that I bought her the others that were available. This one I bought her for Christmas. She has already read it, but she does reread her books and shares them with her aunt, who is eight. It is not only fun reading, but I found that my granddaughter plays the characters and creates her own stories based on Heidi and her antics.

My 8 year old daughter likes all the Heidi Heckelbeck's books. She has all and wish there were more. I wish the author writes more of these books. They are all funny and exciting.
