Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost, Susan Jeffers
Since I already confessed I didn't read anything over the holidays, I'm going to share a gift book that I gave, thanks to a display at Parnassus Books. This is a reissue. Susan Jeffers' illustrations of Robert Frost's classic poem, Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening, are beautiful. While it's designed for children, ages 4-8, I gave it to my sister for memories. I also gave a copy to a friend who loves poetry, and a friend who loves poetry and art. Poetry and art just seem to go together, and they do with this book.
I will say, when I gave it to my sister, and said I almost kept it for myself, she said, "But you hate winter." She's right. But, Jeffers' artwork makes up for that. Even I can admire winter in a book.
If you have a gift card to a bookstore, and love Robert Frost's poetry, you might want to think about this book.
