The Road Not Taken

Robert Frost, illus. by Vivian Mineker. Familius, $17.99 (32p) ISBN 978-1-64170-107-5
Golden, autumnal shades by Mineker mark Frost’s archetypal “wood,” as a red-haired child with a canine companion walks toward two roads that diverge. Seen from high above, the child resembles an abstract shape faced with the choice between two distinct paths. The boy’s choice leads to pivotal life moments: in one series of images, he grows older as he plays with tinker toys, then holds a book of architecture, then graduates from school. On another spread, chasing his still-spry dog leads him to meet his life partner, which lead to children, grandchildren, and old age. Mineker captures the poignancy and weight of Frost’s most well-known poem while delivering an accessible story of choices and personal journeys to young readers. Ages 5–8. (Mar.)
