Henry's Night

Henry the bear longs for sleep but discovers the magic of nocturnal animals. A quiet contemplation of nature perfect for bedtime, inspired by the life of Henry David Thoreau. 

 

What to do when you can't fall asleep? 

 

Henry the bear, based on Henry David Thoreau, wants to sleep, but the sounds of the village keep him awake. Henry takes his night jar, fills it with fireflies, and sets off to track the elusive whippoorwill to help him feel tired. Each time he draws near, the bird flies deeper into the woods, where Henry encounters many wonderful creatures. But will he ever find his night bird? 

 

This book, inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s moonlit walks, shines a quiet comfort on the mysteries of nature in nighttime.
