A review of Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost, illustrated by Susan Jeffers by The Girl (age 11)

[The poem can be read in its entirety here.]

*I think this poem is about a man taking time out of his day to enjoy nature in the woods.

*My favorite lines were “He gives his harness bells a shake/To ask if there is some mistake.”  I like those lines because they give you a really good picture in your mind of what the man’s horse is doing when the man stops to observe nature.

*I thought the illustrations were great, but they were also distracting because I like to make my own pictures in my mind when I read a poem.

*This wasn’t my favorite Robert Frost poem, but it did make my top 10.  [For the record, her favorite Frost poem is "Fire and Ice."]
