    Deciding to build himself a cabin in the woods, Henry asks all of his friends for their advice, and the end result is a brand new home that is a lot bigger than it looks, in an adorable story, inspired by the life of Henry David Thoreau, that celebrates the true meaning of home.
  • Baker & Taylor
    Young Henry Thoreau appears frugal to his friends as he sets about building a cabin.
  • Houghton
    How big does a home really need to be? When Henry decides to build a cabin for himself in the woods, he gets some help and a lot of advice from his friends. But Henry, being Henry, has his own ideas, and he sets about building his house as a bird builds its nest. As he adds everything he thinks his cabin needs, Henry’s new home ends up being a lot bigger than it looks!

    Inspired by the life of Henry David Thoreau, and illustrated with nature-filled paintings by author and artist D. B. Johnson, Henry Builds a Cabin is a thoughtful and beautiful meditation on what a home can be.
