I realize this is a children's book, but I actually bought it more for me than my kids. We did this as a FIAR-style book in homeschool the year it was released, and I got it from the library then... been looking for a copy for myself ever since. The poem is one of my favorites and the illustrations in this book are perfect.
One of the most beautiful books I own (and will never part with). The poem has always been special to me, but the illustrations make this a truly exquisite book to be enjoyed by the entire family. A must-have for all Robert Frost fans.
