Overview

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.

Susan Jeffers is the illustrator of such distinguished picture books as Three Jovial Huntsmen, a Caldecott Honor Book; Rachel Field's Hitty; and the ABBY Award-winning Brother Eagle, Sister Sky, which was also a New York Times best-seller.

Illustrations of wintry scenes accompany each line of the well-known poem.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Robert Frost's Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening with Susan Jeffers's 1978 illustrations plays up a festive family atmosphere. Jeffers warms the snowy b&w scenes by accenting coats, blankets and birds with muted colors. A frosty vellum cover evokes a wintry feel. (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
This lovely book begins with its vellum-covered exterior muting the finely drawn and colored illustrations of Ms. Jeffers. She has brought the poem to life for youngsters by personifying the speaker as an elderly gentleman with his horse and sleigh. The poem, inspired by the beauty and quiet of a winter wood, has also inspired Ms. Jeffers as she interprets Mr. Frost's now famous words with creatures and habitats of seasonal beauty. Here is a wonderful way to introduce fine poetry to a youngster or class, one that is sure to inspire further reading. A note at the end explains the author's inspiration. Try pairing this with Sharon Creech's Love that Dog. 2001, Dutton Children's Books, $15.99. Ages 4 to 7. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger

Meet the Author

Robert Lee Frost was born in San Francisco in 1874. When he was ten, his father died and he and his mother moved to New England. He attended school at Dartmouth and Harvard, worked in a mill, taught, and took up farming, before he moved to England, where his first books of poetry, A Boy’s Will (1913) and North of Boston (1914), were published. North of Boston brought him recognition as the preeminent voice of New England and as one of America’s major poets. In 1915 he returned to the United States and settled on a farm in New Hampshire. Four volumes of his poetry, New Hampshire (1923), Collected Poems (1930), A Further Range (1936), and A Witness Tree (1942) were all awarded the Pulitzer Prize. He died in 1963.
Susan Jeffers is the illustrator of such distinguished picture books as Three Jovial Huntsmen, a Caldecott Honor book; Rachel Field's Hitty; and the ABBY Award-winning Brother Eagle, Sister Sky, which was also a New York Times besteller. She lives in New York.

Read an Excerpt

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sounds the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

    An Amazing Picturebook!

    When I was in high school, my English teacher made my class memorize random poems. I don¿t remember why we had to do this, but I do remember analyzing and memorizing ¿Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,¿ which soon became one of my favorite poems of all time. It stayed with me long after high school, and in my graduate program for education, I made an iMovie of the poem depicting the scenery while also depicting the chain rhyme on screen. I still have that iMovie and I occasionally show it in classes when I go to teach poetry, so imagine my surprise when I came across this hardcover, illustrated book of my favorite poem! I stood in the bookstore and read it; absolutely amazed with the illustrations and the interpretation of the poem, which is a bit different from my own interpretation, but alas, I decided not to buy the book, not then anyway. Of course, I thought about it often and kept thinking of going back to get it, but never did. Then Christmas came, and my wonderful friend bought it for me! I was, and am, extremely excited because it¿s such a beautiful book! And, I plan to use it in the classroom as well, making poetry more fun for my students as I read it to them and show them the pictures¿ and then the real analysis will begin. I think this is one of the best picture books I¿ve ever seen, and I highly recommend it, for both the young and the old. It¿s a fabulous book to add to your library. Five stars.

    Awe Inspiring

    I got this book because this is my favorite Frost piece. Now that I have this book, I get to read it not just for myself but for my grandson. He asks me to read it to him for his bedtime story. It has become a catalyst for sharing poetry with my 5 year old grandson. Great book

    A Deep Meaning

    I think that 'Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening' is about his life and how he thought of death. But, he decides that he still has a long way to go before he dies ('and miles to go before I sleep'). Anyways, this is great!! I recommend it to all.

    Superb!

    This is one of the finest books for all ages that I know of. The beauty of Frost's wonderful poem is only enhanced by the magical, excellent illustrations. I am delighted to learn it is still available. I gave a copy to my brother and his wife several years ago and it has become one of their favorite books of any kind. We all enjoy it together at Christmastime.

    For All Ages

    I bought this book for my 14 month old,and it has quickly become her favorite. As we read it, she enjoys finding the horse and other animals on each page. As soon as we finish reading, she demands me to 'rrread!' it again! I've taken the book to school where I shared it with a group of first graders. I read the poem first to familiarize them with it, then read and showed the illustrations. They loved finding all the hidden animals and interpreting the man's work. Later, a group of high schoolers found the book on my desk and pored over it. This is truly a book for all ages to enjoy.
