A multimedia presentation by award-winning illustrator, Wendell Minor, on his new children's book, If You Spent a Day with Thoreau at Walden Pond.
Follows Thoreau and a 21st-century child as they explore, row on the Pond, watch wildlife, and pick huckleberries. The boy learns to see the natural world through Thoreau's keen eyes. An appealing introduction to Thoreau for young children. Beautifully illustrated.
