The Road Not Taken
by Robert Frost, Vivian Mineker (Illustrator)
5 out of 5 stars
“I took the road less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.”
I am in awe of how beautifully this book captures the majesty and mystery of Robert Frost’s poem. That moment of indecision- which path to take- and those moments of inspiration when you realize that your journey has led you to a place of beauty and heart’s ease; all these things are explored in this lovely picture book.
The artwork is warm and welcoming, inviting the reader into the story of a young man who is making choices in life. He grows up, gets married, and has children and grandchildren, and looks back on his journey and the choices he has made that have led him through his life. The illustrations are beautifully colored in warm yellows and oranges as the leaves fall from the trees in an autumn woodland.
I am completely enchanted with this lovely book! I almost cried reading this, because it touches your heart in a special way.
Even though it’s a picture book, this would make a delightful gift for an adult who loves Robert Frost’s poetry, or maybe for a graduation gift to a young person who is embarking on a life journey. And it’s a great way to introduce Frost’s poetry to children as well.
