    1. Another book in D.B Johnson s series about Henry David Thoreau conveniently depicted as a bear in this series This story is about the jail time he served for not paying taxes, his protest against the laws that allowed slavery Great story, very imaginative, fun illustrations.

    2. This was a surprise I expected some cutesy story with jumbled looking pictures I actually came to like the pictures and certainly did not expect slavery to be introduced at the very beginning I spent most of the book trying to pick up on the symbolism that I m sure was in there Some I got, I think some I missed But it all was completed for me when at the end I learned who the bear and his experiences were based off of.

    3. D.B Johnson s Henry picture books are a perfect introduction for young readers to Henry David Thoreau and the ideas he shared in his book Walden In this book Henry is put in jail because he refuses to pay taxes to a government that allows people to be bought, sold and owned This experience helped shape Thoreau s speech Civil Disobedience Ghandi and Martin Luther King, Jr were very much influenced and inspired by his important speech.

    11. After reading Henry Climbs a Mountain, I was able to pick up on the connection to Henry David Thoreau through the main character, Henry Henry stands up for what he believes in although he has to go to jail for it Henry also has a wild imagination and a kind soul I think this book would be fit for a lesson in social studies for a 4th grade class It could bring in connections to slavery, philosophy, and history The tax payer encounter and talking of slavery, combined with the time spent in jail wo [...]

I really enjoyed this book but it is definitely for older readers due to the content It is a simple read but it deals with slavery and taxes and protesting the government, which younger students would not really understand I would say this book is best for 5th grade students It deals with these important topics but also wraps in creativity and making the best out of every situation Henry gets thrown in jail for not paying his taxes because he doesn t believe in paying a government that buys and [...]

    24. This is a great book to use to teach students how they can use research in all types of writing It would work well for teaching a research based short story or picture book as part of a multi genre research paper.

    25. This story is a ode to Henry David Thoreau and his stand against slavery Of course, you don t know this till you read the About Henry passage at the back, so a lot of this story just doesn t make sense first read through.Really interesting illustrations they seem very Cubist to me.

    26. I love reading this to my daughter because of lines like I won t pay taxes to a state that lets farmers own slaves I feel like I m sowing the seeds for a future revolutionary But, then again, she loves Fancy Nancy too, so maybe a revolutionary in a tiara.

    30. We love this series This one introduced some topics going to jail, paying taxes, drawing on the wall that we had to discuss further, so maybe a little better for an older child.
