" This is a beautiful introduction to Henry David Thoreau and how he began his 2+ year existence at Walden Pond. Not for preschoolers, this book will give older children a lovely introduction to a quietly influential man. I love the closing quote, "We can never have enough of nature." " said.

" It's no secret that I think Henry David Thoreau is bees knees, and I try to share him as much as possible with my students, but it's hard to find relatable texts for grade school students. This book was spot-on! I read it with 5th graders and they impressed me with their interest in the subject matter. " said.

"I really loved reading Henry David Thoreau in college, so I was intrigued by the concept of turning his actual words into a children's book. But I'm afraid this book doesn't do the job well. Perhaps there would be other passages that would communicate the essence of the experience better? I felt this was too long and wordy for a children's book, and I was dissapointed that it didn't use some of the more recognizable segments from the famous book (i.e., "I went to the woods..."). Beautiful illustrations, though." said.

" Great for a specific purpose. Uses text from Walden alongside illustrations. Definitely sets the mood. Would probably not be appealing to the average reader, but for someone who wanted a brief intro to Walden or classic literature, it would be good. Would also make for a great baby shower gift for a literature enthusiast. " said.

" A children's picture book with beautiful Andrew-Wyeth-like drawings and excerpts from Walden,/I> cleverly condensing Thoreau's adventure for a young audience. " said.
