What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

For all of life’s adventures comes this beautifully illustrated companion inspired by Robert Frost’s perennial poem “The Road Not Taken.” Heartwarming illustrations of a young boy journeying through a yellow wood accompany the original text of the poem. When a fork in the road arises for the boy, so too does the first of life’s many choices. And as the poem progresses, so does the boy’s life: college, career, marriage, family, loss, and, by journey’s end, the sweet satisfaction of a life fully lived. The first children’s book ever made of Frost’s famous poem, this moving presentation makes an inspiring gift for graduation, marriage, career moves, and all of life’s exciting roads.

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

B is for Bookworm
Human Development Degree, Book-loving aunt

This book isn’t text heavy, but the words are poetic and might be difficult for little ones to understand—I think adults will appreciate this one more. I love the illustrations, the concept, and the inspiring, well-know words of Robert Frost, “Two roads diverged in a wood…” The illustrations really tell the story.
