Beware of all enterprises that require new clothes.
Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.
In Wildness is the preservation of the world.
Surely joy is the condition of life.
Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in.

Henry David Thoreau for Kids: His Life & Ideas, With 21 Activities - Corinne Hosfeld Smith
American author and naturalist Henry David Thoreau is best known for living two years along the shores of Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts, and writing about his experiences in Walden; or, Life in the Woods, as well as spending a night in jail for nonpayment of taxes, which he discussed in the influential essay "Civil Disobedience." More than 150 years later, people are still inspired by his thoughtful words
about individual rights, social justice, and nature. His detailed plant observations have even proven to be a useful record for 21st-century botanists. Henry David Thoreau for Kids chronicles the short but influential life of this remarkable American thinker. In addition to learning about Thoreau's contributions to our culture, readers will participate in engaging, hands-on projects that bring his ideas to life. Activities include building a model of the Walden cabin, keeping a daily journal, planting a garden, baking trail-bread cakes, going on a half-day hike, and starting a rock collection. The book also includes a time line and list of resources--books, websites, and places to visit that offer even more opportunities to connect with this fascinating man. This book was reviewed in
