I didn't finish this, although it was well written and the story interesting. My problem is my growing resentment about the American Revolution which was just a bunch of entitled white dudes wanting freedom to pursue their property (which often included other humans) and manipulated the poor colonists to not only buy their line of BS, but to fight and die for their cause in the name of "liberty". While I am often taken with women in history, Abigail was as invested in the class entitlements as her husband, which was why she was educated at all. So out of bitterness I quit this book.… (més)

I love this book about Frost because he was determined and different. I never knew about Frost until I read this book. I am a fan of poetry because it is expressed from your heart and it's genuine. Being a poet was his passion, not baseball. I can tell he loves his wife by the words he says to let her know how he feels. When Frost does chores on the farm, he expresses his words naturally to his wife. Frost even encouraged his kids to reread stories and memorize poems. It was interesting when his kids choose books over dessert. I would've chosen books to read, then eat dessert later. I was glad when Frost's book of poems was published in the magazine. It is called The New Republic, there were positive reviews about Frost's poems. The watercolor illustrations lend to a deep and soft texture to the text. The story overall was inspiring because being a poet takes dedication meaning, he was committed to poetry. Young kids would love this book because it has a deep meaning to it. Also, if they want to become a poet this book would put you onto poetry. From the daughter's point of view, she explained what her father went through in a unique tone and she believes his words of poetry were so real and beautiful.… (més)

This book was written from Robert Frost's daughters point of view. It talks about what it was like growing up with a father who loved to read and write and chased his dreams. It also shows the sequence of events in his life such as how he grew up and how he eventually became a successful poet. This gives students an idea of what it is like for poets and what it takes to write poetry. This could be used around a time of a poetry lesson. Students could be motivated to write their own short poem and pretend they are poets and even have a poetry slam where they share their poems. I think students would enjoy this book by how the descriptions and illustrations help bring the story to life. There are many similes and metaphors throughout the book and could be used to see if students could spot them out while they were reading. This is also a way to introduce students to another genre and help them understand what a biography is. I would use this book in a third grade class!… (més)
