Henry Builds A Cabin Activity

When Henry decides to build a cabin, he is given lots of advice from his friends. While others think it should be bigger, he has his own ideas. Follow Henry through the building process and see how his cabin is just right! Henry Builds a Cabin is another fantastic book by D.B. Johnson that looks at the life of Henry David Thoreau in a delightfully engaging way. It is a book for all ages.
We would like to thank the following individuals for their wonderful support of this project: the author D.B. Johnson; Richard Smith (Thoreau); Leslie Wilson, Curator of Special Collections, Concord Free Public Library; and Jeff Cramer, Curator and Jayne Gordon, Education Program Director at the Thoreau Institute at Walden Woods. With their gracious assistance and warm hospitality, we are able to enrich the lives of students with this virtual activity. So many children cannot make the trip to Concord to view the important primary source material or experience the essence of Thoreau and his friends. With much gratitude, we hope you enjoy the activities and the fun of discovery.
