Little Naturalists: Henry David Thoreau in the WoodsGibbs Smith
Introduce your baby to Henry David Thoreau, his time at Walden Pond, and how he enjoyed living in the woods. Thoreau was an American author, poet, historian, and philosopher. Millions of people have read his writings, and a favorite of many is Walden, the story of the year he spent gardening, whittling, and walking in the woods around his tiny house at Walden Pond. Thoreau still influences people today, and is considered extremely important to the environmentalist movement.
