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.

About the Author:

Natalie S. Bober is an award-winning biographer and historian who has written about Thomas Jefferson, Abigail Adams, and William Wordsworth, among others. She is the author of the middle-grade book A Restless Spirit: The Story of Robert Frost. She lives in Port Washington, New York.

Rebecca Gibbon is the illustrator of many picture books, including Elizabeth Leads the Way, an ALA Notable Book; and Celebritrees. She lives in England with her family.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5–Bober's picture-book biography is narrated by Frost's oldest daughter, Lesley, and based upon her childhood journal. It begins with the family's return home from two years in England, where they had lived so Frost could concentrate on writing poetry instead of farming. “Papa had the courage to trust his own feelings and know what he had to do. He made a reckless choice,” says the teen, quoting the first verse of “The Road Not Taken.”  As she waits with her mother and siblings in New York's Grand Central Terminal for the train to New Hampshire, her father visits the publisher of a book of his poetry that his wife saw reviewed in the New Republic. Lesley recalls her childhood at Derry Farm, where her papa raised chickens and sold their eggs; took his family on all-day Sunday picnics; and, with his wife, homeschooled the children. Reading and memorizing poetry were highly stressed in the Frost household, as was the purchase of books. (“Papa thought that any book worth reading twice was worth owning.”) Bober has captured the poet's personality, his love for family, and the inner strength that allowed him to follow his dreams. Indeed, he returns to the station with a contract for two books–the beginning of his successful writing career. An author's note offers further biographical information. Photos, quotations, a short bibliography, and a dozen of Frost's poems are appended. Charming, detailed folk-art-style watercolor paintings add to the appeal of this readable introduction to a great American poet.–Susan Scheps, formerly at Shaker Public Library, OHα(c) Copyright 2013.
