  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2004 September #1
    K-Gr. 3. The fourth volume in a series of Thoreau-inspired picture books features Henry the bear "walking to work." Though unemployed in the traditional sense, he finds plenty of useful things to do, helping his neighbors and his environment, as he follows a circuitous path by the pond, through the woods, into the town of Concord. Back home at last, he gets to work writing about his ramble. Though the story here is less focused than in the previous books, fans of the series will happily follow the amiable bear as he ambles the countryside. The book ends with a page of information about Henry David Thoreau's life and work. As in the previous books, Johnson's distinctive artwork, which uses geometric shapes to strong effect, greatly enhances the experience of any child hearing the book read aloud. Though unconventional in approach, these beautiful illustrations are entirely accessible to children. Recommended for libraries in which the earlier books have a following.
