An exquisitely illustrated edition of a timeless poem. Robert Frost’s realistic depictions of rural life, especially of New England in the early twentieth century, are beautifully paired with the art created by Grandma Moses, the artist who epitomizes contemporary folk art. The result is a treasure to be enjoyed the whole year long. In spring, we give thanks for the natural and spiritual joys of the season. Moses’s illustrations complement Frost’s descriptions of the flowers, trees, bees, and other sights and sounds, which evoke a time of renewal and rebirth with illustrations that depict a place of quiet contemplation and endless possibility. A Prayer in Spring is a wonderful gift for lovers of Frost, Moses, poetry, and folk art, as well as for Easter baskets, birthdays, new babies, or for children and adults who can’t wait for the season.
Robert Frost (1874–1963) won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry four times.
Grandma Moses (1860–1961) is one of the most important self-taught artists of the twentieth century, achieving a celebrity that transcended the normal boundaries of the folk-art movement. In the post–World War II years, Moses (born Anna Mary Robertson) was one of the most successful and famous artists in America.
"visually stunning and offers much food for thought for young minds." ~Kirkus Reviews
