Editorial Reviews

Praise for Poetry for Young People: Robert Frost:
“ . . . satisfies in every way.” —School Library Journal
" . . . an attractive large-size volume . . . Sorensen's handsome watercolor illustrations capture the feel of the New England landscape without in any way trying to provide literal images for the poetry. There's an excellent biographical essay…" —Booklist
"...superb; the poems are introduced in a tone that is informative but not pedantic." —Publishers Weekly
“ . . . thoughtfully compiled and brilliantly illustrated." —Buzz Weekly
