A great introduction to "Walden" by Henry David Thoreau, one that I can see working to draw readers toward the actual work. Well done!

"Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads." John Porcellino's simple line drawings pair well with brief excerpts from Henry David Thoreau's writings. The book is divided into four seasons, which gives a narrative flow to time spent at Walden Pond. Additional material at the beginning and the end will help orient new readers to Thoreau's work and will point them towards further reading. Grade 6-12.
