Using Robert Frost's beloved text, The Road Not Taken is the first ever children's book capturing this timeless poem about the challenges and joys of life's long road. A young boy journeys through a yellow wood, but when a fork in the road arises, so too does the first of life's many choices. 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. Accompanying the original text are beautiful illustrations of everyday life, filling in the spaces of Frost's narrative with humour and poignancy. This book is a wonderful way to speak to children of any age about decision making and the passage of time.
