One thought on “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

  1. 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 Most of the [...]

  2. 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.

  3. soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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 Inferno in Th [...]

  7. 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 subtler [...]

  9. 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 interfering [...]

  10. 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 sle [...]

  11. When a book focuses on a single poem, that poem takes on 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.

  12. 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 could use [...]

  13. 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 subject [...]

  14. 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 class [...]

  17. 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 si [...]

  18. 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 Paired [...]

  19. 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.

  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. This book is one of our family Christmas traditions Last year, we memorized the poem and this year when we read it again, everyone was able to recite it Such lovely illustrations for this cute poem.

  25. Mom rates 3 stars, kids 1 star Oh how I wished I would have read poetry to my kids when they were babies They just don t really have an affection for it unless it is funny poetry like Jack Prelutsky writes
