In 1845 in Concord, Massachusetts, Henry David Thoreau began a
radical experiment: he built a cabin in the woods and lived there,
alone, examining the world around him. He spent his days walking
the shores of Walden Pond, growing beans, observing plants and
animals, and recording his reflections in his notebook. These
reflections eventually became his seminal work "Walden."
In this lovely picture book, Robert Burleigh and Wendell Minor
imagine a special day spent with the celebrated writer and
naturalist "through the eyes of a child." Together Thoreau and the
young boy watch small but significant wonders such as swimming
fish, fighting ants, and clouds in the sky. It is a day full of
splendor and appreciation of the outdoor world.
