I've loved the writings of Henry David Thoreau since I was in my late teens, so I was very excited to read about Henry Hikes to Fitchburg when it was published in 2000. I bought the book immediately and read it as soon as it arrived. Not only was I not disappointed, I felt as if I had been given a chance to re-experience parts of Walden in a new way. D.B. Johnson takes a one-paragraph passage from Walden and extrapolates it into a beautifully illustrated story that brings to life Thoreau's point -- the journey is its own reward. In this picture book Henry and his friend are both bears, dressed in 1840s New England clothing. The illustrations tell the story of the tedium of working for wages versus the enjoyment of nature. I especially like the illustration which shows Henry crossing the Sudbury River. Highly Recommended.

I find this book to have a good solid moral foundation and a decent flow to the overall story. The illustration in this book is top-notch and love looking at it. My son loves it as well. I wasn't sure if the story would be boring to him, but it is not. He asks me to read this to him for bedtime. Whether you read Henry David Thoreau back in the day, or not, it is still a good book and I would recommend it to a friend.

Best children's book to introduce the ideas of a great American author, Henry David Thoreau.

With a wonderful art style, this book presents an excellent story that my kids love to this day, and can be read and reread with the same enjoyment each time. It’s a great gift for new parents, and I highly recommend it.

I'm simple-minded and easily addled, so Henry's simple approach to getting to Fitchburg reminds me that it's not all bad to leave some of the technical complexities to solve themselves, and to travel light, examining the rewarding beauties and curiosities of nature along the way, instead of speeding headlong to a prosaic goal, where we'll likely spend at least 10% of our time waiting for something or someone.

This is a fantastic book, based on the writings of Henry David Thoreau. Great for kids and adults alike.

Don Johnson's clever book contrasting Henry's smell-the-roses approach to life with his friend's more conventional idea about the value of efficiency would make a good addition to any child or school's library. Based on a quote by Henry David Thoreau, the book is a welcome antidote to the plethora of books aimed at the aspiring "Tiger Mom" market. The illustrations in the author's distinctive cubistic style lend an almost otherworldly and inviting element to the story. My wish for every child of high-pressure, well-meaning helicopter parents is that they have a relative or friend who will read "Henry Hikes to Fitchburg" to them at an early and impressionable age.
1. It's a work of Henry David Thoreau for kids!
2. The pictures are great.
3. Historical figures from the era are mentioned throughout.
4. Accurate geography mentioned.
5. It's a fun game. Find the similarity in the pictures of Henry and his friend.
6. A few sentences per page, at most. Keeps your attention.

This is my favorite children's book.
