9780805094077: Papa Is a Poet: A Story About Robert Frost

When Robert Frost was a child, his family thought he would grow up to be a baseball player. Instead, he became a poet. His life on a farm in New Hampshire inspired him to write "poetry that talked," and today he is famous for his vivid descriptions of the rural life he loved so much. There was a time, though, when Frost had to struggle to get his poetry published. Told from the point of view of Lesley, Robert Frost's oldest daughter, this is the story of how a lover of language found his voice.

Book Description Henry Holt and Co. (BYR), 2013. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Praise for A Restless Spirit : "Bober successfully portrays the four-time Pulitzer Prize winner as a very human schoolboy, husband, father, farmer, and teacher. She stresses Frost's determination and Yankee spirit, but also gives glimpses of his darker sidethe anger, the depression, the suicidal bent. The clear and straightforward text is interwoven with poetry." School Library Journal Praise for Rebecca Gibbon's illustrations in Elizabeth Leads the Way : "Excellent gouache and colored pencil illustrations, rendered in a lighthearted folk-art style, provide rich background for the brief text." School Library Journal "The sometimes informational tone is animated and energized by Gibbon's plentiful vignettes and paintings, rendered in a vibrant folk-art style." Publishers Weekly Praise for Rebecca Gibbon's illustrations in Celebritrees : "Gibbon's acrylic-ink, colored-pencil, and watercolor artwork creates an inviting look throughout the book." Booklist.
