His nonfiction works include The Art of TeachingWhy Poetry Matters and Promised Land: Thirteen Books that Changed America.  He writes for various publications, including The New York TimesThe Guardian, and The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Editorial Reviews

"Paraskevas’s atmospheric paintings evoke themes of seasons, nature, selfhood, and change. With deceptively simple imagery, Frost’s work is accessible to younger readers..."

- National Council of Teachers of English
"This beautifully illustrated book contains a selection of 35 poems by Robert Frost.....This is a lovely addition to a poetry collection for middle grade students to introduce some of the better known works of Robert Frost and, perhaps, spark an interest in looking for additional books or information. Recommended"
- School Library Connection
"A movingly illustrated selection of Frost's verse....Children will devour these suggestive illustrations as instructors help them unpack the many lessons to be gleaned from Frost's conversational yet complex verse."
