Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening

By Robert Frost
Illustrated by Susan Jeffers

“And miles to go before I sleep.”

This is one of Robert Frost’s most popular poems. Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening has a beautiful, bordering on haunting lyricism. When I came across this picture book set to his words in Barnes and Noble I was more than enthused. It was so gorgeous. The artwork is perfect, and it puts a new spin on the tale. I couldn’t help but picture Santa Claus (as I first found this over Christmas) and was delighted. Everyone I’ve shown this to has been touched and thought it wonderful. It’s a great gift for Christmas, for a friend, for your poetry lover, or your child. Great all around.

It gets a 4.5 out of 5
