Poetry for Young People: Robert Frost

by Gary D. Schmidt, Henri Sorensen
Use all your senses—not just your eyes—when you read Robert Frost’s remarkable poems. Your own world will quickly melt away as Frost draws you into winter wonderlands, forests, and fields. More than twenty-five of the Pulitzer-Prize winner’s best-loved poems are included, along with stunning illustrations, in this introduction to the work of one of America’s greatest poets.

Gary D. Schmidt is a professor of English at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He is the author of, most recently, Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy—which won Newbery and Printz Honors—as well as First Boy and The Wednesday Wars. Schmidt lives in a 150-year-old farmhouse in Alto, Michigan, where he is a swinger of birches and a mender of walls.

Henri Sorensen is a Danish artist who has illustrated over 20 books for children, including I Love You As Much . . ., The Yellow Star: The Legend of King Christian X of Denmark; and Christmas in the Trenches. His work can be found in The Very Best Children’s Book Illustration, published by the Society of Illustrators. He lives in Risskov, Denmark, with his wife and two daughters.
