In this slim volume of 51 poems by Robert Frost, with foreword by Hyde Cox, and wood engravings by Thomas W. Nosan, you will notice that though most of the poems include people, they are all about things that grow; and many are about and for “people that grow” – children.

This collection of clever, observant and compassionate poems – selected by Frost himself for young readers – is recommended reading for Grades 6-8, but I suggest they are poems to be read to and by readers of any age. The book

I received this collection (well, an addition I can't find on goodreads,) as a child. It was before I had grown to love poetry, and to be honest, it has sat, neglected, on my shelf ever since. Even when I came to passionately love poetry, I looked at this book and turned my back - Robert Frost, simplistic rhymes about nature, right?

I will be the first to admit I was wrong. Something I have learned over the last two years is that I actually really admire good form - well structured, rhyming poet

"You Come Too" by Robert Frost is a very skilled level poetry book. Inside the book, you will find poems for not only like it says on the cover (Favorite Poems For Young Readers), but for all ages. Frost has some very great poems that you could read over and over again. I rated this book 5 stars because it truly is amazing poetry and Robert Frost deserves a good rating for his poetry. I did not rate this any lower because good poetry does not lie and this book should be read by anyone who wants ...more

Robert Frost is by far my favorite poet. There are two main reasons for this. The first is his use of colloquial language throughout his poems, and the second is his accurate descriptions of nature. I strive to be able to identify nature the way Frost does, and I hope readers will be able to identify with what I write about, that they will be able to relate to it, and one way of doing that is by using colloquial language.

I have been on a poetry kick this month. I absolutely love Robert Frost. It was great to read many of his poems that I was not acquainted with. I definitely recommend this book of Frost poetry.

Any time I hear the name ‘Robert Frost’ my mind instantly reverts to his poem ‘The Road Not Taken’. Perhaps that’s because it’s my favorite of his poems – perhaps it’s because the only collection of his poetry I owned prior to purchasing this one is titled ‘The Road Not Taken’. Whatever the reason, it’s certainly his most famous poem.

In this collection of poetry (which Robert Frost himself compiled), special care was paid in selecting pieces which describe nature and friendships with that vibran

There is something unearthly about poetry. How it seems to flow in perfect cadence off the tongue. How it is refreshing to the mind with its lovely lilt. Poetry conveys emotion in a way that not even books can. It can take you places you have never imagined or show you a small thing that you take for granted but it shows beauty. That is what many love about Robert Frost’s poems. They are musical to the ears and soft and sweet, but convey very beautiful things.

This simple book, easy to miss, is a treasure. I used to poo-poo Robert Frost, I don't know why, perhaps just because he was over-used and over-celebrated, until his faults seemed to glare and he had to be thrown aside. But now, it's time to take a second look. The 1959 forward by Hyde Cox is touching, and still relevant, and the poems in the collection are accessible to literally anyone who can read. Rather like those of Emily Dickinson, these poems can be read on the literal plane, or on a spi ...more
This short collection of Robert Frost is a nice reminder of why I love his poems. I don't love every poem, but the ones I do love strike such a chord within me that I want to stop and dwell in that moment for a while, savoring the feeling of identification that washes over me. "The Pasture," from which the title of the collection is taken is that short, succinct ring of imagery and beauty that encourages us all to pause and appreciate the simple pleasures. Some of my favorites in this collection ...more

Flinty, moody, plainspoken and deep, Robert Frost was one of America's most popular 20th-century poets. Frost was farming in Derry, New Hampshire when, at the age of 38, he sold the farm, uprooted his family and moved to England, where he devoted himself to his poetry. His first two books of verse, A Boy's Will (1913) and North of Boston (1914), were immediate successes. In 1915 he returned to the ...more
