It seems odd that a book of poems by Robert Frost for children, especially one that is organized around poems on each of the seasons of the year, doesn't include "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening." This is one of Frost's best known and most beloved poems and it's an ideal one for children.

My mother had bought this for me, and I read from it too my son since he was born. Now I've purchased it for his about-to- be born son. Have cherished Frost's poetry all my life, as a New Englander his sights and feels are my own. This book is beautifully illustrated and perfect to pass on the tradition

I got this for my four year old because I grew weary of reading her Elmo. It’s been a challenging transition, but she’ll thank me for it one day.

I thought these were poems for the very young. These are more for ages 9+, but Robert Frost never wrote a bad poem! Excellent seller...refunded my money when I shared that I wanted the simpler poems!

I'm 24, and I'm a poet now and even have written books. My mother gave me my first poetry book at a young age and it was this one. I absolutely love it and I still love frosts work. It came in great condition! Thank you so much.

I bought this book to read to my first grader and my Kindergartner. I love the impressionistic illustrations that accompanied the poems. I felt they were a perfect accompaniment to the poetry and didn't overwhelm the text at all. The selections were appropriate for younger listeners and I greatly appreciated the arrangement of the poems by season. I've been reading the winter poems to them this winter and am looking forward to moving toward the spring poems as spring approaches. I'm so glad we have this book.
I love Robert Frost's poems and was eager to share them with my nieces and nephews for Christmas. I just thought they could have done a lot better on selecting child-friendly poems for younger children. When we received these, I did not give them out because it includes the poem "Out, Out!" which is a poem about a boy using a chain saw to do is an excerpt...

His sister stood beside him in her apron
To tell them ‘Supper.’ At the word, the saw,
As if to prove saws knew what supper meant,
Leaped out at the boy’s hand, or seemed to leap—
He must have given the hand. However it was,
Neither refused the meeting. But the hand!
The boy’s first outcry was a rueful laugh,
As he swung toward them holding up the hand
Half in appeal, but half as if to keep
The life from spilling. Then the boy saw all—
Since he was old enough to know, big boy
Doing a man’s work, though a child at heart—
He saw all spoiled. ‘Don’t let him cut my hand off—
The doctor, when he comes. Don’t let him, sister!’
So. But the hand was gone already.
The doctor put him in the dark of ether.
He lay and puffed his lips out with his breath....

Anyway, I did not want my young nieces' and nephews' first exposure to this author to include this poem about a boy cutting his hand off and spilling blood everywhere. I suppose it could be valuable as a cautionary tale...but I didn't wish to alarm or offend the parents so I did not give them out. It's kind of funny actually...not the poem but this little story!
I personally always hated this poem! But that's just my personal opinion....
