The Road Not Taken
I had not heard this poem before. It kind of sounds like a song, and it kind of sounds like a story. A boy goes on a journey down a trail that no one has taken for a long time. The pictures show a story of a boy growing up. The boy stops at a fork in a path in the woods. He picks up a leaf from one fork and puts it in his backpack, but he walks down the other fork. The boy finishes school, and then he goes to a city and becomes an architect. His dog chases a cat onto the lap of a woman who becomes his wife. They get married and have a baby and then another baby. The architect builds a house. The children grow up. The wife gets old and sick and dies. At the end, the old man throws away the leaf from the other road. I think the old man is happy that he took the road he did. Little kids and anybody who is curious about the world will like this book.
