Ralph Waldo Emerson has made an impression on adults worldwide, but how should his writings be introduced to a child?  In this biography for young readers, A Home for Mr. Emerson,  Barbary Kerley focuses on the dramatic house fire that Emerson suffered through in his old age.  Adult fans of Emerson will enjoy his quotes sprinkled throughout the text.  Children will be fascinated by the imaginative and colorful illustrations on every page.
