With gorgeous watercolor and oil illustrations on each page, this book is a delightful summary of Henry David Thoreau’s Walden. Watch as Thoreau sets up the frame of his house, observes wildlife, and enjoys the beauty of Walden Pond.
Thoreau removed himself to Walden Pond because he felt that living in harmony with the simplicity of nature was better than leading a troubled life like the people all around him did. Though we may debate this philosophy, this book is nonetheless a beautiful work of art and a summary that children will enjoy.
