Papa is a Poet | 09-Aug-14

"Papa thought that any book worth reading twice was worth owning. So instead of buying desserts, we bought books." 

Recently added to our children's collection is this charming story book, a biography of Robert Frost written from the point of view of his eldest daughter Lesley.  Written by Natalie S. Bober, with illustrations by Rebecca Gibbon, the story starts with the Frosts arrival back in America after their two and half year stay in England, with Lesley reminiscing about growing up on their New Hampshire farm. The book includes extracts of poems within the story, with the full-text of the poems given at the back of the book, and is a celebration of taking the road less travelled.
