In this novel about a sweet girl and her kind grandfather, Heidi chooses to the hayloft to sleep in in her grandfather's cabin so that she can see the beautiful landscape out of her window. The hayloft is a lovely place to sleep. Heidi makes a bed and pillow out of piles of hay, and with the help of her grandfather, covers the hay with a bedsheet. She then enlists her grandfather's help to find something similar to a comforter for her to snuggle up underneath when she goes to sleep. At first, her grandfather is not sure that he has anything like that, but he soon remembers he has a large sewn sack that will work wonderfully as a comforter.
