    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “Johnson’s adaptation of a paragraph taken from Thoreau’s Walden illuminates the contrast between materialistic and naturalistic view of life without ranting or preaching.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “A nicely realized retelling of a short passage from Henry Thoreau’s Walden.”

    School Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Johnson implies what money can and cannot buy, and encourages slowing down to experience nature. With graceful understatement, he presents some complicated ideas assuredly and accessibly.”
