Review of Stopping By the Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost

Synopsis: "Ever since it was published in 1978, the picture-book presentation of Robert Frost's poem "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" has been an enduring favorite. For this special edition with a new design, trim size, and three new spreads, Susan Jeffers has added more detail and subtle color to her sweeping backgrounds of frosty New England scenes. There are more animals to find among the trees, and the kindly figure with his "promises to keep" exudes warmth as he stops to appreciate the quiet delights of winter. The handsome new vellum jacket will attract new and old fans as it evokes a frost-covered windowpane. This celebration of a season makes an ideal holiday gift for a child, a teacher, or a host. Robert Frost (1874-1963) is one of America's most celebrated poets and a four-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize."

My Review: While I was hoping it would include more of Frost's work it was still a beautiful book. The images were beautiful and the simplicity of it all made it something I could enjoy and Munchkin could enjoy. It will definitely be added to my annual Holiday reading list.
My Rating: This is a beautiful book that all ages can enjoy.  There really is nothing like Robert Frost's poetry during winter nights.  I give it a rating of Four Paws.
