So often when I think of my children I think of vibrancy, energy, motion. Sometimes it's dancing, sometimes it's that I'm-too-tired-to-admit-I-need-a-nap frantic zooming from one thing they shouldn't do (or touch, or put in their mouth) to another. Poetry and children just seem to go together. Children respond with pleasure to the unexpected rhyme, the tap-tap-tapping of an alliterative phrase, or the reassuring rhythm of a familiar meter. In so many ways, kids are poetry - poetry in motion. Mos ...more

The old familiar words are given new life by Susan Jeffers' ethereal, lovely illustrations as an elderly gentleman stops to admire the beauty of a quiet woods, and even makes a snow angel.

This book was siting on a coffee table at a house I was visiting family at, so I picked it up to see what it was, and read through the whole short book. Beautifully illustrated, the pictures with the corresponding lines of poetry are almost magical, and kept we pulled in to a beautiful ending. I really enjoyed this one.

I had not read Robert Frost's "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" in decades. I memorized the poem back in grade school, and it is fun to see how much my daughter loves this book!

One of Frost’s most haunting and lucid illustrations of his resolution to death is in “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” (1923). Written in the first person, the voice of the poet is expressed through the speaker, who, when travelling home on a winter’s night, is compelled to pull up his horse and gaze towards some woods as they “fill up with snow”. Seemingly transfixed, on “the darkest evening of the year”, the poet is positioned between the woods and a frozen lake, alluding to Dante’s “Inf ...more

This is a sweetly illustrated book and makes a nice read-aloud for littler ones. My problem with it is that the illustrations fail to do justice to the poem's intimations. There's way too much light for "the darkest evening of the year," for instance, and the narrator is shown making snow angels on the snowy floor of the woods. If you want to read a poem to little ones while having pictures to show, fine. But I wouldn't think Robert Frost would enjoy this near subversion of his masterpiece! The ...more

I think that Jeffers lyrical illustrations really create a beautiful chord combined with Frost's words. I grew up in snow, and it is captured so exquisitely. I love this edition, but so much is communicated in the illustrations that I started to think about the words being overpowered or limited by the portrayal. I found most of the book, where there are animals subtly drawn in the trees- their image unfolding for the reader who pauses to look- to be in total support of the text, and not interfe ...more

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 sound’s 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 befor

When a book focuses on a single poem, that poem takes on more importance. 'Stopping by Woods" is an American classic that every student should have read at least once, preferably in high school. Sometimes I like to read a line and think about what it means while I admire Jeffers' art. (Note: I am not a fan of poetry.)

LOVE this poem. Reminds me of sitting in a window and watching the snow fall. The illustrator did a perfect job.

Summary: This is a book written as a poem. It is about a man and his horse who travel many miles on a winter day, in their sleigh, to the woods and then back to their house in the village.

Evaluation: I really enjoyed this book and think it is wonderful for students to read as it introduces them to poetry. It also includes beautiful pictures!

Teaching: I would read this book to students when discussing poetry in an ELA class as I think it is a great example of a poetic story. After reading, I coul

It was the beautiful and pristine cover of this book along with its spine that caught my eye. Intrigued I picked it up without even really looking and recognizing that it was a famous poem illustrated until I really got a chance to sit down and read the first line of both the book as well as the poem.

Although the reader of poetry may know the poem well enough, especially if they enjoy Robert Frost it is Susan who adds the beauty to this particular retelling. She explores the concept of the sub

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 ...more

Stopping by Woods on a Snowing Evening is a wonderful picture book that allows young readers of all ages the opportunity to learn about one of the most famous poets- Robert Frost. The picture illustrations match beautifully with the words of the poem allowing young readers an opportunity to visualize the lines of the poem (which can be a great tool when trying to teach them about poetry!.

1) Book summary, in your own words (3 pts)
-This classic Robert Frost poem is about a man who takes a walk through the woods on a snowy evening (kinda easy to see where he got the title for the poem, right?). He enjoys taking in the beautiful scenery. Unlike his anxious horse, he just wants to sit and enjoy nature for awhile.

Do not let my obvious appreciation for Robert Frost's poetry bias this review. The focus here is on Susan Jeffers's illustrated interpretation of this remarkable poem, and how it brings the poem to life for children and adults alike. Certainly the poem stands on its own merit, but the beautifully wrought illustrations of this edition perfectly accentuate the vision and emotion of the poem. The illustrations are paced carefully, not haphazardly, appearing where images are most appropriate and not ...more

For those who follow my reviews on GoodReads, this will seem a rarity to read and rate a children's book. However this little green hardcover book captivated my attention with the first flick of the pages. I've always had a great love for artistic illustrations in children's books and I must say, this one does not disappoint. Susan Jeffers uses pencil and pen and ink to make all the lovely illustrations in this tale. And with a pop of colored pencil in each drawing, it truly is a work of art. Pa ...more

Austin Ratner's recent review of this book prompted me to enter the world of Frost's "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" as Susan Jeffers has depicted it. I plan to periodically return to Jeffers' exquisite illustrations. Perhaps at some point, I will feel as if they are enabling me to see Frost's thoughts. For now, though, I'll settle for the beauty in this presentation of one of the many memorable poems by my favorite poet.

My copy of this book won't be added to bookswap before I sleep.

This is our project for english and the moment I read it, I thought, "Where is this poem hiding for a long time? I should've read it a long time ago." Why? Because it was really great! We also applied a tone for it to be sung.

For me, it's about the journey of life, depression, struggling, and how solitude might accompany us throughout the way.

My grandmother challenged me to memorize this poem when I little. She said she would give me a dollar if I did. I never earned that dollar but I love this poem and think of her when I hear it. I think this book does a great job with the illustrations at really making the words make sense to young kids who might not be used to the poetic way of communicating.

As I told my boys, this is just one person's idea of what Frost may have been thinking of when he wrote his poem. Personally, I doubt anything so busy was in his mind- I think it's a poem about silence, mainly. And that's not the idea presented here. But still. I think it's a good thing to think about, to try to imagine what the poem could mean.

The illustrations are very good.

Wow! One of Robert Frost's best poems gorgeously illustrated! It is in print again (slightly smaller format), so now I can give my mom's copy back to her. This has been one of my favorites for pretty much my whole life, and I would give it ten stars if I could.

Flinty, moody, plainspoken and deep, Robert Frost was one of America's most popular 20th-century poets. Frost was farming in Derry, New Hampshire when, at the age of 38, he sold the farm, uprooted his family and moved to England, where he devoted himself to his poetry. His first two books of verse, A Boy's Will (1913) and North of Boston (1914), were immediate successes. In 1915 he returned to the ...more

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 sound's 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.”
