Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Again, an unassuming, deeply affecting tribute to an essential philosopher and writer.
Kirkus Reviews, Starred

With a quiet humor and attention to natural settings, Johnson respectfully conveys Thoreau's philosophy of simplicity.
Publishers Weekly, Starred

The illustrations are both charming and a graphic tour de force...that evoke the many moods of a summer day.
Horn Book

Young readers will appreciate Henry's endeavors, and commisterate with him.
School Library Journal

Fans of the series will happily follow the amiable bear as he ambles the countryside. Booklist, ALA

This title offers subtle reassurance that things that don't read like work can be quite important; kids who have had their diligent efforts to keep their worlds in order go unnoticed will feel a kinship with this observant, tireless bear.
The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
