If You Spent A Day With Thoreau At Walden Pond by Robert Burleigh

In 1845 Henry David Thoreau began a radical experiment: He set out to see if he could live alone in the woods of Massachusetts by Walden Pond. While there, he built a cabin, grew his own food, and mostly observed the nature around him.  The well known book, Walden, recounted Thoreau's observations for an adult audience; however, this simple, beautiful picture book now makes Thoreau's experiences acccessible for children.  Recommended for 5-9 year olds.
