About A Book: Henry Works

Henry is a bear who lives in the woods. Some folks don't realize all the work that Henry does! He makes sure even the wild plants have enough water in the dry season. He places stones in the stream so people can cross. He keeps his eye on the land and sky. And at the end of the day, he begins his most important work of all.

Read D.B. Johnson's Henry Works, and other books about Henry, the bear whose character is based on the life of Henry David Thoreau. Thoreau lived over 150 years ago, and he wrote about his experiences living simply in the woods of Concord, Massachusetts.

Other books about Henry include: Henry Builds a Cabin, Henry Hikes to Fitchburg, and Henry Climbs a Mountain.
