When Robert Frost was a child, his family thought he would grow up to be a baseball player. Instead, he became a poet. His life on a farm in New Hampshire inspired him to write "poetry that talked," and today he is famous for his vivid descriptions of the rural life he loved so much. There was a time when Frost had to struggle to get his poetry published, but inner strength helped him continue on and reach for his dreams. Told from the point of view of Lesley, Robert Frost's oldest daughter, this is the story of how a lover of language found his voice.
Papa is a Poet is written by Natalie S. Bober and illustrated by Rebecca Gibbon.
