Kids and parents can do one of the activities in the new book, "Henry David Thoreau for Kids: His Life and Ideas, With 21 Activities." Author Corinne H. Smith will demonstrate an easy project: making a rock collection box from a shoe box and extra cardboard. Thoreau made his out of wood; but we’ll have fun recycling and re-purposing more common material. We’ll supply the boxes and cardboard. You can bring along rocks you’ve already found. We’ll have guide books to help identify, label, and store them.
