This book gives a child's look on the life of Henry David Thoreau by illustrating a bear getting lock up in jail for not paying his taxes because of the stat's law on slavery. While in jail, the bear draws all over the walls and images helping a slave run away by giving him his shoes. This book is considered a fantasy because realistically, bears can't talk, and you can't take adventures while in a jail cell with your pictures you drew on the walls. But this book is historically somewhat accurate because it shows some of the true events that happened with Henry David Thoreau. A teacher could easily use this book to teach children about the work of Henry David Thoreau and how he wanted and helped abolish slavery. Media: Pencil drawingsThe setting for this book takes place in a small town and in a jail cell. This helps the book be more accurate because it relates to the setting of the real Henry Thoreau and the type of setting that took place during his time.

This is a terrific series of books. The illustrations are terrific, and it's a great way to introduce children to great literature. There are five books in the series, all of which are based on Henry David Thoreau's classic Walden. By far the best is Henry Climbs a Mountain, but the rest are excellent as well. What is especially nice, is that even though the books are simplified, they still capture much of the Thoreau-vian spirit - although a bit more whimsical. Also recommended Trouble with Henry : A Tale of Walden Pond written by Deborah O'Neal and Angela Westengard and illustrated by S. D. Schindler
